A partial transcription of the Port Rowan Personals column on page 2 of the 3 Apr 1924 
Simcoe Reformer
newspaper. [Paragraph breaks inserted by the transcriber, the original 
being a single paragraph] 

Esther A[r]n Fick died at the home of her daughter, 
Mrs. Millard, in Toronto last Saturday and her remains were brought here on the midday train on Monday for internment.

Mrs. Fick was a daughter of the late John Wheeler 
and was born on the old homestead now owned by 
J. Chamberlain, near the Plank Road school house.

72 years ago she married the late Stephen Fick who passed away last August since which time she had
made her home with her daughter in Toronto.

Three sons and three daughters survive to mourn her loss, John of South Walsingham, 
Frank of St. Williams, 
James of Rowan Mills, 
Mrs. A. Balmer of St. Williams, 
Mrs. Clarence Welsh of Port Rowan
and Mrs. I. E. Millard of Toronto.

The late Mr. and Mrs. Fick always lived in the vicinity of Port Rowan and their integrity gained them many friends. Their life occupation was farming and a large measure of success attended their efforts.

The deceased was for many years a consistent member of the Methodist church and upon arrival her remains were taken to the Neal Memorial Church where the service was held, conducted by the Rev. Mr. Quigley.

All of her children were present with a large number of sympathizing friends. Interment took place in Fairview Cemetery.

[Compiler's Comment: Stephen and Ester Wheeler's cemetery stones are in Franklin-Fairview Cemetery]
