Death of Young Woman

A death that has aroused much sympathy here occurred in London on Tuesday, when Mrs. Jack Caswell formerly Miss Marguerite Cross of this town, succumbed to the ravages of influenza-pneumonia.

Her husband, is engineer of the C.P.R. at London, and was formerly on the engineering staff here during the construction of the L.T.&N. 

He became ill with influenza first, the second time in a few months, and Mrs. Caswell nursed her husband during the first few days of her illness, herself having to take to her bed last week, death following in the course of five days.

Mr. Caswell also developed pneumonia and is too ill to be told of his wife's death.

The body was brought here Tuesday. The funeral will be held from the home of her father, Mr. Chas. G. Cross, Colborne Street, this afternoon at 2.30 p.m., 
Rev. D. A. Moir being the officiating clergyman.

Beside her husband and father, Mrs. Caswell leaves three brothers and two sisters. Harry of Kalamazoo, 
Charles of Grand Rapids, Arthur on overseas service, Mrs. Almin Harvey of Vancouver, B.C., and 
Mrs. D. Wyatt Goodlett of Simcoe. 
Her mother predeceased her about two years ago.

Mrs. Caswell was only in her 23rd year.

Mr. Charles Cross from Grand Rapids and Mr. Harry Cross of Kalamazoo, Michigan came for the funeral.
