Death of Woodhouse Lady

Mrs. George Kirkwood of Lynn Valley, died on Tursday of last week. 

Readers will remember that report appearing in a previous issue of her falling out of bed and breaking her hip. At that time she had been ill for three weeks and latterly had been in a critical condition. Her weakened frame could not endure the double strain and death ensued.

The funeral took place on Sunday. Interment was in Oakwood Cemetery.

Mrs. Kirkwood, who was 58 years of age, is survived by her husband, two daughters and two sons, George and Albert at home, Mrs. John Anderson of Townsend Township, and Mrs. Harold Inskip of Andover, N.Y.

A little grandson of a deceased daughter lives with his grandparents. His father, Wellington Hocking, is on active service.

Mrs. Kirkwood's neighbors heard of her demise with keen regret, as she was ever ready to help in sickness and in other ways was a splendid neighbor.
