Full Text

Another link with the long past of the Grimsby district, in the person of Mrs. Sophia Ann Book, died on Tuesday evening, May 4, 1926, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Egbert Smith, at The Fifty. Mrs. Book was born in the house now occupied by Alex Glover, one and one-half miles west of Winona on Jan. 18, 1829, daughter of William Stevenson and Jane Anderson. In 1839 the family moved to Grimsby Township and on May 10, 1848, she was married by the Rev. George Grout to William Book, when they went to reside on the Book homestad, now the home of G. Lorne Book, and lived there for over half a century, and where in 1898, Mr. and Mrs. Book celebrated their golden wedding. Mr. Book died in January 1900, and for several of the remaining years Mrs. Book had lived with Mrs. Smith. Throughout her life, Mrs. Book was beloved by all who knew her and though most of her more intimate friends have long since passed, she will be mourned by many of the younger generation. Surviving are two sons and two daughters; Jonathan A. Book and George Lorne Book of North Grimsby, Mrs. Egbert M. Smith of The Fifty and Mrs. C.A.P. Smith of North Grimsby. The funeral will take place on Thursday afternoon. A short service will be held at the home of E.M. Smith at 2:00 o'clock, thence to St. Andrew's Anglican Church, Grimsby, where service will be held. Interment in St. Andrew's Cemetery.
