resident of simcoe dead
There recently passed away
Mrs. Robert Beverley Matheson, whose maiden name was Margaret
Durward, a native of Simcoe, Ontario.
After their marriage Mr. and
Mrs. Matheson removed to Montana, and subsequently to British
Columbia. For the past three years they have made their home on a
farm near Breedsville, Michigan.
Mrs. Matheson was a lady of
fine literary culture and she endeared herself to all with whom she
came in contact.
The respect in which she was
held by her neighbors was attested by the large concourse that
attended her funeral in a sparsely populated farming district, and
in the closing of the local school during the obsequies.
The bereaved husband is a
nephew of Robert Matheson, the first editor of this paper. -- Chicago
and Maggie Durward grew up in Simcoe and her untimely death will be
sad news to many old friends and schoolmates who read The Reformer
in various parts of the world.
