Mrs. Geo. Boyt

On Saturday morning, Dec. 3rd, after a few hours of intense suffering, Mrs. Boyt was suddenly called into the presence of the Lord. An ideal mother, a faithful Sunday School teachers, and a consistent Church member, Mrs. Boyt will be sadly missed, not only at home, but also in the life of the Church, and of the community.

Mrs. Boyt, whose maiden name was Agnes Lowrie, was born in Scotland in 1871. Coming to Canada as a young woman, she was married in Oct. 1898, to Geo. Boyt, at St. Catharines, where they made their home for some years. Later the family moved to Boston where they have won many friends who now sorrow with them in their great loss. 

Two sons, Arthur and Howard, and one daughter, Leta, at home, and three married daughters, Mrs. Russell Harvey and Mrs. Clifford Johnson, of Boston, and Mrs. Thomas Cribb of North Bay, with their father, Geo. Boyt, mourn the loss of a devoted loved one.

The funeral service was held on Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock, at the home, conducted by the pastor, Rev. A. J. Loveday, whose message of comfort was based upon the text in Deut. 13, 12, "The beloved of the Lord through faith in Jesus Christ as Saviour, in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins according to the riches of His grace, Eph. 1, 17. Only then can we dwell in safety by Him.

During the service two favorite hymns of Mrs. Boyt were sung "Under His Wings I am Safely Abiding," and "Safe in the Arms of Jesus," and Mrs. Glenford Campbell sang the solo "Hold Thou my Hand, so Weak I am and Helpless," by special request of Mrs. Boyt.

The pallbearers were Thomas Cribb, Clifford Johnson, Russell Havey, Frank Boyt, Sydney Boyt, and Robert Douglas.

In sure and certain hope of resurrection we laid her body to rest in Greenwood Cemetery, until the day break and the shadows flee away.
