Full Text

Born in the township of Grimsby 78 years ago, there passed to her last reward, on Tuesday night, Margaret House, relict of Richard Shannon for many years a valued town employee. Another link severed of the people who built this district. Deceased up until a year ago had been enjoying the best of health. During the past half year she began to fail and despite all that loving care and medical skill could do, silently slipped away on Tuesday evening. Mrs. Shannon was the oldest of a family of eight, seven daughters and one son, all of whom predeceased her. While never a woman who took part in social organizations, she always could be relied upon for help among her neighbours and contributions where they did the most good. Surviving is one son, George, of the Hydro Electric Commission of Ontario. Funeral services are taking place this afternoon from the Stonehouse Funeral Home at 3 o'clock. Interment will be in Queen's Lawn Cemetery, with Rev. W.J. Watt, Trinity United Church, officiating. Casket bearers will be Mayor Edric S. Johnson, Earl J. Marsh, Albert Marsh, Edward Farewell, Frank Hitchman, Norman Todd.
