The Late Mrs. Magee

Houghton has lost one of its pioneer residents in the the person of Mrs. Grace Magee, who died on Monday afternoon, 5 Jan 1920, in her 72nd year.

Deceased had been confined to her bed all summer, but for the past two months had recovered sufficiently to be able to be around the house, and her sudden death came as a great shock to her children and friends.

Mrs. Magee's maiden name was Perrin. Born in Round Plains, she came to Glen Meyer when 2 years old, and had resided either in Glen Meyer or Beach Lane ever since.

She is survived by one daughter, Mrs. W. Safford of York; four sons, George of Hamilton, Ernest and Ottis of Wallaceburg, and Herbert at home; 33 grandchildren, and seven great grandchildren.

Her youngest daughter, Mrs. John Ferris, died 10 Oct 1919, after an illness of two weeks. Her husband predeceased her about one year ago.

The funeral took place 8 Jan 1920 at Glen Meyer, and was conducted by Rev. Mr. Falkingham of Fairground. 

The pallbearers were: Messrs. Wm. Kelly, 
W. and H. Maguire, P. Priddle, Geo. Stansell 
and M. Williams.
