Late Mrs. Geo. Hammett
At eleven o'clock Sunday
evening, 29 Jul 1917, there passed away at her home in Woodhouse,
after a long
and severe illness, the wife of Mr. G. A. Hammett.
During the whole of her
residence in Woodhouse,
Mrs. Hammett has been an invalid, and so unable
to take an active part in either church or social circles.
Besides her husband, she
leaves to mourn her loss
five sons and two daughters: Wm. G. and Alfred E.
of Toronto, J. B. and Ed. J. of Buffalo,
Miss M. H. of Hamilton, Leslie and Miss Lonie,
and her granddaughter, Elsie, at home.
All the members of the
family, except her only sister,
Miss Boosey of Embro, were able to be present
during the last week of her illness.
Owing to the absence of the
Presbyterian minister, the funeral services were conducted by the
Rev. Mr. Farney.
