A lightly edited partial transcription of the Items of Local Interest column on page 12 of the 27 Feb 1919 issue of the Simcoe Reformer newspaper.

Miss Lillian Hooker died in Brantford Hospital on Sunday in her 19th year. 

She was stricken with influenza last October and pneumonia developed. She had treatment at the Emergency Hospital and apparently recovered 
well enough to leave the institution. 

Later, however, bright's disease made its appearance 
and there being no place to take care of her in this 
town she became a patient in Brantford Hospital, 
where she has spent the intervening months.

She was the daughter of the late John Hooker and 
of Mrs. Hooker, now of Charlotteville.

Her remains were brought to Simcoe to the home of Henry Crabb. The funeral was held yesterday at 
2 p.m. from the Baptist Church to Oakwood Cemetery. 
Her clergyman, Rev. Mr. Newcombe conducted the 
last rites.

For some time the deceased young woman was an employee in the E. H. Jackson drug store.
