The 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.
