The Late Mrs. C. G. Cross

In Simcoe, on 29 Feb 1917, there passed away one of its oldest and most respected residents in the person of Adelia Wood, beloved wife of Charles G. Cross, in her 65th year.

The deceased had been a patient sufferer for about a year and recently underwent an operation from which she never rallied. 

The funeral took place from the family residence, 
84 Colborne Street north, on Friday afternoon, conducted by the Rev. J. H. McBain, with impressive ceremony. The funeral was largely attended and the floral tributes were many and beautiful.

The deceased is survived by her husband, three sons, 
G. Harry of Mt. Clemens, Mich., 
Arthur F., now overseas in the cause of his country, 
Charles H. of Levering, Mich., and three daughters, 
Mrs. A. Harvey of Vancouver, B.C., 
Mrs. R. J. Caswell of Niagara Falls, Ont., and 
Mrs. D. Wyatt Goodlett, at home.

She is also survived by one sister, Mrs. Frank Freeman of St. Thomas, and two brothers, Charles of London, Ont., and Ernest of Valcan [sic], Sask.

Mrs. Cross had been a continuous resident in the family home for over 40 years. 

Much sympathy is extented to the bereaved family for the loss of a faithful wife and loving mother. 

Mr. Harry Cross of Mt. Clemens, Mich., 
Mrs. A. Harvey of Vancouver, B.C., and 
Mr. and Mrs. J. R. Caswell of Niagara Falls South 
attended the funeral, as did Mrs. Freeman of St. Thomas.
