A lightly edited partial transcription of the Port Rowan column on page 5 of the 4 Mar 1920 issue of the Simcoe Reformer newspaper.

Mrs. Annie Hutchinson died at the home of her son, James W. Hutchinson of this village last Sunday. Mrs. Hutchinson was 74 years old.

She was a daughter of the late Robert Craig, born in Autrim, Ireland, and came with her parents to Canada when five years old.

The family settled on a farm in the township of Walsingham, where the children grew up to fill honored positions in the world.

She married Alex. Hutchinson, a young man of worth and character, and they began life on their own farm at Carholme, where a happy family of sons and daughters were raised amid congenial surroundings.

They moved to this village about 10 years ago and after the death of Mr. Hutchinson a year later, the deceased for the most part lived with her son, where she died.

She is survived and will be greatly missed by three sons and four daughters:
Robert H. of Whitby, public school inspector of Ontario county;
Dr. W. G. of Hespeler, and
James W. police magistrate of Port Rowan;
Mrs. Wm. Franklin of North Dakota;
Mrs. J. S. Smith of Port Rowan;
Mrs. C. H. Pierce of Hespeler, and
Miss Della, head operating nurse at Victoria Hospital, London.

Three brothers also survive to mourn her loss: William of North Walsingham;
James of Walsingham Centre; and 
Robert of Simcoe.

The funeral service was held at the home on Tuesday, when all of the children were present except Mrs. Franklin.

Rev. J. M. Smith, pastor of the Methodist Church, of which the deceased was an honored and faithful member, conducted the services. Interment took place at Walsingham Centre.
