Former Vittoria Woman
Paris Star-Transcript: It
was with deep regret that the news was learned in town Wednesday, 7
Mar 1917, of
the death of Mrs. William Wright, which took place
the previous afternoon at the residence of her parents,
Mr. and Mrs. William Dawson, 2nd Concession, Brantford township, in
the 32nd year of her age.
Deceased was born in
Vittoria, Norfolk County, and came here with her parents about 10
Prior to her marriage she
worked as a trained nurse and through her loving sympathy and skill,
had made many friends in and about this vicinity, who will learn of
her demise with deep regret.
The late Mrs. Wright was
united in married in February of last year, to Mr. Wm. Wright,
formerly of Galt, and left with her husband to take up residence in
Renown, Saskatchewan, coming back Christmas to spend the festive
season under the parental roof, where she had since been visiting.
Deceased was in her usual
good health until about a week ago, when in spite of all that loving
friends could do, she gradually passed away.
She leaves besides her
husband and her parents, one sister, Mrs. John Peart of Brantford,
and two brothers, William of Vittoria, and Lorne at home.
A very sad feature of the
case is that a little baby daughter, who was born on 8 Feb, passed
away on Wednesday morning last, and was interred with its mother.
Word was wired the husband
but he was unable to reach here in time to see either his wife or
little babe before they passed to the Great Beyond, and the sympathy
of the entire community will go out to him in his double
bereavement, as also to the other sorrowing members of the family.
The remains were laid to
rest in Paris cemetery on Saturday afternoon.
