On Good Friday death called away
from our midst one whom all loved and respected in the person of Mrs. J.
Byron Kelly of Lynedoch after only a few days' illness.
Deceased was born in Langham,
Norfolk county, [England] her maiden name
being Esperance Withers, and in 1893 was united in marriage to J. Byron
Wilson, making their home on the farm where she died.
Six children were born to the
union, one dying in infancy. The remaining are: Ralph of Victoria
College, Toronto; Clifford of the O.A.C.; Guelph, Lorne, Stanley and
Delbert at home.
Besides the husband and family,
the deceased leaves on brother in Drayton, Ont., and three sisters to
mourn the passing of a true Christian mother and companion.
She was a faithful and devoted
member of the Lynedoch Methodist church, always present at the services
except when illness prevented.
The funeral was held on Easter
Sunday, conducted by the Rev. A. S. Trueblood, interment being made in
the beautiful Evergreen cemetery at Lynedoch.
Many floral offerings testified
to the high esteem in which the late Mrs. Wilson was held. The sympathy
of all is tendered to the mourning ones in hour of sorrow.
