The Late Ruggles Stiles
Much sympathy is felt for
Mrs. Ruggles Stiles in the very sudden death of Mr. Stiles last
While sitting at the table,
eating a hearty supper after a hard day's work, Mr. Stiles was
seized with agonizing pain. Medical assistance was called in, but in
spite of all that could be done for him, he died at 12 o'clock.
Mr. Stiles was born in
Brooklyn, Mich., in 1846, and was therefore in his 66th year. He was
twice married, Mrs. Della Ryan (formerly Miss Della Bingleman of
Walsh) being his second wife. They were united in matrimony in 1897,
and since that time lived in Buffalo for five years and Simcoe for
nine years. Deceased was a Methodist.
Mr. Stiles is survived by
his second wife and two children by his first wife, a son and
daughter, Mrs. Barstow of Brooklyn, Michigan.
The funeral services took
place on Monday afternoon, Rev. Mr. Libby of Brantford, a former
pastor, having charge. Mrs. Liddy sang very feelingly, "Never
Lose Sight of Jesus." Interment was made in Oakwood Cemetery.
Among the relatives
attending the funeral might be mentioned Mrs. Geo. Elder of
Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Nisely of Buffalo,
Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Bingleman of Walsh,
Mr. and Mrs. Jno. Bingleman of Walsh,
Mr. and Mrs. Barstow of Brooklyn.
The floral tributes were
very handsome. Wreaths were sent by the Christian Brotherhood, the
members of the Simcoe branch of the W.C.T.U., and Mrs. Charles
Jones; a spray by Mrs. Barstow, and a pillow by the family of
Mr. C. A. Chadwick.
