Death of Mrs. Stanley McKim

Lynedoch, 10 Jul 1919 -- It is with sadness that we chronicle the death of one of our most highly esteemed citizens in the person of Mrs. Stanley McKim, which took place on Thursday, 3 Jul 1919, after but a few days' illness. 

Her maiden name was Maud Wilson, born in Calgary in 1887. Eight years ago she was united in marriage to Mr. S. McKim, and to them were born four beautiful children: Robert aged 7 years, Helen, 5 years, Alice, 3 years, and baby Jennie, just 14 months.

The passing of Mrs. McKim brings sadness to all, for she was loved by every one who knew her for her sweet Christian character and her willingness to help others.

Besides her husband and children she leaves her father and two sisters, 
Mr. Wilson, Mrs. Fry and Mrs. Terrant, 
all living in the west.

The funeral was held on Monday, 
7 Jul 1919, conducted by the Revs. Ross and Trueblood, and attended by many friends who unite with the whole community in extending unbounded sympathy to 
Mr. McKim and the children in their great sorrow.
