Death of Mrs. Puzey

The death occurred on Friday last, after an illness of two weeks, of an old and highly respected resident of the community in the person of Mrs. Thomas Puzey, Sr.

Captain Puzey, pink of cheek and clear of eye, although within an few days of his 80th birthday, helped attend his wife devotedly.

It was thought that she was recovering, when suddenly the end came. The Captain was alone with her and she died in his arms.

She was the elder daughter of the late Lawrence H. Hunt of Windham, for five years Warden of Norfolk, and in his time one of the county's most prominent figures.

Capt. Puzey Passes Away

A well known resident died yesterday morning in the person of Capt. Thomas Puzey.

His health had not been of the best for some time, but his death came very unexpectedly. 

He was in his 82nd year. He had recently returned from a year's visit to his daughter, Mrs. Allen of Saskatoon.

Capt. Puzey spent practically all his long life here, his farm in Woodhouse being close to town.

In the early days of the militia he took an active part in the formation of the [old] Norfolk Rifles, and was the C.O. of No. 6 Company for a long period.

He was a [....... .......] prominently identified with the Norfolk Agricultural Society. He was an Anglican, a Conservative, and a member of the Masonic fraternity.

His wife, who predeceased him some 18 months ago, 
was Mary, daughter of the late Squire S. H. Hunt, 
at one time a leading man in Norfolk County.

Of their union, there survive three sons and one daughter: Thomas H. of Simcoe; John of Vancouver, 
Fred of Seattle, and Mrs. Allen, already mentioned.

The funeral will take place tomorrow afternoon to 
St. John's Woodhouse.
