Grimsby residents were greatly shocked on Sunday evening to learn of the sudden death, at her home on Paton street, of Mrs. Fred A. Rosebrugh, in her 70th year. Deceased had not been in good health for a considerable period of time, but her illness was not of such a serious state as to cause undue alarm, so when the end came suddenly her great legion of friends throughout the district were shocked and upset. She was the daughter of the late Edgar J. and Mrs. Palmer, life long residents of Grimsby. Mary Palmer from her earliest childhood days was a vivacious, spirited woman, who made friends wherever she went, with her ready smile and hearty greeting. She numbered her friends in all classes of life and will be greatly missed by them all.
Following her marriage she resided in Hamilton for several years where her husband, Dr. Rosebrugh, practiced his profession. Upon retirement from active practice, some 30 years ago,they returned to Grimsby to reside. The doctor predeceased her in 1931.
She was an adherent of St. Andrew's Anglican Church and a valued member of St. Andrew's W.A. Mrs. (Major) Murray Biggar is her only survivor.
Funeral services were held at her late home on Tuesday afternoon, Rev. J. Allan Ballard officiating. Interment being in the family plot in Queen's Lawn Cemetery.
Casket bearers were: Col. Wm. Coleman, Ottawa; C.P. Coleman, Toronto; Roy C. Calder, St. Catharines; M.S. Nelles, George Nelles, James Hogan, Grimsby.
