Death of 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 years ago.

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.
