Late Mrs. Benj. Brownlee

At an early hour on Saturday morning 20 Oct 1917, there passed away at her home in North Walsingham, the wife of Mr. Benjamin Brownlee.

For several years she had suffered from heart trouble, but had been always able to perform her duties until the last call came.

She was a true helpmate to her husband and gave her children loving and wise care and gained for herself the affection and respect of the community in which she lived.

She is survived by her husband, three daughters and three sons, who were all near her at the time of her death.

She has also one grandson, Corporal Gordon Hill, now in England after serving at the front. One brother in Toronto and a niece, Mrs. James Church of Vittoria, also survive.

The funeral took place on Tuesday, 23 Oct 1917, the service being conducted by Rev. Mr. Ross in the Carholme Methodist Church, and interment was made in the Carholme Cemetery.
