A lightly edited partial transcript of Port Rowan column from page 5 of the 22 Feb 1917 Simcoe Reformer:

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 Burwell.

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.
