Mrs. Elton Furry died in the General Hospital, Hamilton, last
Wednesday from gangrene, which had permeated her whole system,
causing intense suffering for a long time.
It was thought advisable to
amputate one of her limbs in the hope of aiding in her recovery and
she was taken to the hospital for that purpose, but even that proved
of no avail and she passed away as stated above.
Her remains were brought here
on Thursday and taken to her home accompanied by her husband.
Mrs. Furry's maiden name was
Miss Allie Chambers. She was daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs.
Edward Chambers, and was born in Walsingham just over 40 years ago.
Besides a sorrowing husband,
she leaves to mourn her loss two sons, Grant, aged 17, and Gordon,
aged 11 years, who will greatly miss the counsel and care of a
loving mother. She is also survived by one brother, Melvin of Port
The deceased was a woman of
many excellent qualities and had a very large number of friends.
The funeral was held from the
home on Friday. The service was conducted by the Rev. J. A. Jewitt.
A large number of relatives and friends were present. Interment took
place in the Franklin Cemetery.
