W. W. Jennings

Hagersville: Mr. W. W. Jennings passed away on Monday, September 3rd, at his home on Howard Street. He had been in ill health during the past few months. 

Mr. Jennings, who was in his 73rd year, has been an esteemed and valuable resident of Hagersville for a good number of years and his death will be greatly regretted.

The remains were conveyed from Linn's Funeral Parlors on Thursday afternoon to the United church where the funeral service was held at 2 o'clock and was very largely attended. Rev. M. J. Aiken preached the service.

The late Mr. Jennings had been an insurance agent in town for a goodly number of years.

Mrs. Jennings predeceased him less than a year ago. He leaves two daughters, Mrs. (Dr.) Lindsay, St. Catharines, and Irene Jennings of Toronto; also two sons, Dr. Harry Jennings of British Columbia, and Ward Jennings at home. One daughter, Grace Jennings, R.N., predeceased him about five years ago. 

The pall-bearers were all members of the high school board of which Mr. Jennings was secretary-treasurer and were: Dr. J. F. McCracken, Dr. R. G. Hyde, D. N. Almas, James Laidlaw, Roy Winger and William Hobbs. 

The abundance of flowers were very beautiful including a wreath from Simcoe I.O.O.F. Lodge No. 161.
