Late Mrs. Thos. L. Roberts

The funeral services of Mrs. Thos. L. Roberts, who died on Wednesday last after a lingering illness, the result of an attack of influenza-pneumonia, were held at her late residence, on Friday, the 15th inst.

The services were conducted by Rev. Mr. Moir of St. James Church, and the burial took place in Oakwood Cemetery. The pallbearer were Messrs. Hugh P. Innes, 
H. S. Falls, Dr. W. Tisdale, Geo. Luscombe, W. P. Price, and H. S. Macpherson.

Death took place after a brave fight of many weeks, during which time a loving family administered with constant devotion.

The parting of Mrs. Roberts is deeply regretted by a wide circle of very admiring friends, and removes from earthly activities a personality deeply endowed with the physical and mental energies which so endeared her to a large number of acquaintances. The late Mrs. Roberts has always been zealous in the causes of the Methodist and all churches, and her hospitable and kindly heart has been a solace to many in affliction.

The deceased was born in Sutherlandshire, Scotland, the daughter of the late Angus MacKay, and was in her 79th year.

She is survived by a husband, Thomas L. Roberts of this town, and by four sons and three daughters, as follows:
Henry H. of Jamestown, N.Y.,
William M. and Arthur of Zealandia, Sask., 
and Dr. E. I. Roberts of Toronto;
Miss Mary of New York, Mrs. H. M. Lancaster of Toronto, and Mrs. Annie Wilson at home.
