It was with much regret
that the residents of this village learned of the death of
Lewis Boughner on Monday morning, 7 Apr 1919.
Mr. Boughner had not
been well for some time, but went to the barn on Monday
morning to do his chores. Feeling ill, he returned to the
house, and a few minutes later passed away.
He had lived on the
farm on the 13th Concession of Walsingham all his life, and
was much respected in the the community.
He was the youngest son
of the late David Wade and Elizabeth Boughner, and the last of
a family of six children.
Besides his sorrowing
widow, he leaves to mourn his loss four daughters: Mrs. George
Brownlee of Carholme, Leota of Moose Jaw, Helen and Marian at
home, and two sons, Colonel, now overseas, and Harold of
Langton. The late S. M. Boughner of Delhi was a brother.
The funeral took place
from his late residence on Friday, 11 Apr 1919, interment
taking place in Langton Cemetery.
