A lightly edited transcription of an item on page 12 of the 6 Dec 1917 Simcoe Reformer newspaper.

The remains of the late Miss Emma Moule were interred Friday afternoon, 30 Nov 1917 at Oakwood Cemetery.

The deceased arrived here from Detroit on 11 Nov 1917 for a two week's rest and was to return at the end of that time for an operation on her throat, but did not regain her strength and she passed away on 27 Nov 1917, after a lingering illness at the home of her sister, Mrs. Raymond Doring, Queen and Chapel Streets, Simcoe.

The funeral service was held at Mrs. Doring's home and was conducted by Rev. A. B. Farney of Trinity Church. The pall bearers were: A. Anderson, T. Baker, A. West, and V. Norris.

There were many beautiful floral tributes, and among them a handsom spray of roses from the children of her late mistress, Mrs. William R. Kales of Detroit.

All expenses were undertaken by Mrs. Kales, by whom she had been employed until she came to Simcoe.

[Compiler's Comment: we found no surviving readable corresponding cemetery stone in Oakwood Cemetery or elsewhere in Norfolk.]
