Death of Mrs. Strout

Mrs. Strout, wife of Sherman Strout, manager of the Delhi canning factory, died at her home in Delhi Sunday morning.

She had been ill only a few days and the news of her death cast a gloom over the town, where she had many warm friends.

The late Mrs. Strout was 36 years of age and leaves a husband and two children, Helen and Carmen, who have the deepest sympathy of their many friends.

Mrs. Strout was very active in the Women's Institute and Tuesday afternoon 50 ladies of the Institute attended the funeral in a body, to pay a final tribute of respect [to] one they so highly esteemed.

The services were conducted by Rev. Mr. Carpenter of Delhi, assisted by Rev. Mr. Gordon of Brantford, amid every sign of regret and sympathy. The ministers dwelt upon the many virtues of the deceased lady, and especially upon her many acts of kindness.

The large home was filled with relatives and friends assembled to pay their last respects to the deceased. Among the mourners were the husband, daughter Helen and son Carmen, father, Mr. Jull, two sisters, Miss Florence and Miss Mildred Jull, and two brothers, Rev. Mr. Jull and Anson Jull.

The floral offerings were most beautiful and abundant. Interment was made in the Delhi Cemetery. The pall-bearers were Messrs. 
A. E. Steele, W. D. Barnes, David Bertling, A. R. Hargrave, W. E. Sutherland and 
Fred Stipe.
