funeral of the late Miss Edith McKnight, whose death occurred on
Monday, 29 Sep 1919, from an auto accident near Wilsonville, was
held on Thursday, 2 Oct 1919, from the home of her parents, Mr. and
Mrs. A. R. McKnight to Windham Centre Cemetery for interment.
A service was held in the
church and memorial sermons were preached by the pastor, Rev. Mr.
Carpenter, and Rev. P. Nichol of Simcoe. Other fingers pressed the
keys of the organ, so long presided over the the deceased.
The service throughout was
an impressive one. Mrs. Samuel Hall and Mr. Ross Slaght sang
"Crossing The Bar," and Mrs. George Smith of Delhi,
"Thy Will Be Done."
Six young returned men bore
the casket to the grave. The funeral cortege was a large one. Many
friends from Simcoe, Burford, Scotland, Waterford and Townsend were
in the procession.
The beautiful floral
tributes testified to the splendid life of the deceased and the
stricken family has the deepest sympathy of the community in the
loss they have sustained.
