Full Text

The death occurred early on Thursday morning last of Mabel Robina Martin, wife of George C. Fair, at her home Grimsby Beach. Deceased lady had been in ill health for many months but had borne her sufferings with patience and fortitude and her passing peacefully away in her sleep was not a shock to her legion of friends throughout the district, but still was received with deep regret. In all her years as a resident of the Beach she had been a friend to all, particularly the summer residents, and she will be greatly missed. Mrs. Fair came to the Beach with her husband and family in the spring of 1910, when her husband assumed the duties of park superintendent for the late H.H. Wylie. She was born 65 years ago at Drayton, Ontario. She was an adherent of St. John's Presbyterian Church. Besides her husband, three sons, George C. Fair, Orlando, Fla.; Sergt. Harry Fair, overseas, and Rifleman Lloyd Fair, on active service; one daughter, Mrs. Robert Cole, of Hamilton; one brother, Hugh Martin, Almonte, Ont., and one sister, Mrs. D.W. Banks, Bloomfield, N.J., and four grandchildren survive. Funeral services were held at her late home on Sunday afternoon, Rev. G. Taylor-Munro, officiating. Interment took place in Queen's Lawn Cemetery. Casket bearers were Wm. Coon, Geo. W. Crittenden, Fred Jewson, Andrew Hermiston, Roy Johnson and John Schott.
