Late Mrs. S. Y. Kent

Mrs. Kent, who fell and sustained a fracture of one of her thighs some two weeks ago, passed away about six o'clock last Saturday evening.

Her funeral, which was private, took place on Monday afternoon to Oakwood Cemetery. The service was conducted by Rev. A. B. Farney, and the pall bearers were Mr. E. C. Jackson of Tillsonburg and Messrs. G. A. Curtis, H. S. Falls, J. D. Christie, T. R. Slaght and D. R. Tisdale.

The late Mrs. Kent was the last survivor of her generation. She was born at Niagara, some 80 years ago, being a daughter of James and Janet Wilson.

Her husband, Mr. S. Y. Kent, who died a couple of years ago, was a son of George Kent, Esq., who built "Oak Lodge," latterly the residence of Judge Robb, and was a very prominent figure in the early life of the town. He owned approximately one-half the acreage now included in Simcoe's corporation limits.

Mr. and Mrs. S. Y. Kent had two children. A son, Allan, died not a great while ago at his home in Duluth, Minn. A daughter, Mrs. Fred R. Alley of Vancouver, B.C., survives and is at present in Simcoe, having been summoned east when her mother was injured.
