A lightly edited partial transcript of the Port Dover column on page 12 of the 14 Jun 1917 issue of Simcoe Reformer newspaper.

Dr. J. F. Jolley, a resident of Port Dover since 1882, died suddenly Friday, 28 May 1917. Deceased was a son of Rev. Wm. Jolley, a pioneer missionary of Little York, now Toronto.

The doctor was an honor graduate of Victoria University at 20. Being too young to practice, he assisted a physician in Alliston, Ontario, for a time. He then removed to Bay City, Michigan, where he was coroner.

Later he practiced in Kankskee, Illinios, and was a member of the Medical Board of that State.

During his residence here, the Doctor was Medical Health Officer and chairman of the Board of Education for some time.

Possessed of a genial, kindly nature, deceased made many friends who regret his passing and extend their sympathy to his widow and his only daughter, Mrs. J. E. Bell.

The funeral (private) took place on Sunday, 20 May 1917.
