A lightly edited transcription of the Waterford column on page 2 of the 22 Jan 1920 issue of 
the Simcoe Reformer newspaper. 


Mr. Homer Johnson  passed away at the home of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Johnson, Waterford, on 12 Jan 1920.

Homer was in his 44th year and was born in Jarvis in 1876. He came here with his parents 30 years ago.

A few years ago, his health failing, he went to California, where he consulted physicians, but to no avail. He gradually became worse, and last May returned home, where all that loving hands could do for him was done.

His cheerfulness of mind and wonderful patience with which he bore his illness will not soon be forgotten by those who knew him.

He appreciated so much the calls and kind words of Revs. Anderson and Wilkins.

It being impossible for Mr. Anderson to be here, Rev. Mr. Wilkins conducted the funeral service at the home of his parents.

Besides his father and mother, deceased leaves one sister, Mrs. C. E. Shearer of Ohio.
