Full Text

The sympathy of all Lincoln County goes out to N.J.M. Lockhart, M.P. and Mrs. Lockhart, in the death of their only daughter, Agnes Ruth, beloved wife of Capt. Jack M. Abbott, Canadian Paratroop Corps. Mrs. Abbott passed away early Monday morning at the St. Catharines General Hospital in her 27th year.

Deceased was born and raised in St. Catharines, and was well-known to a wide circle of friends who will be shocked to learn of her passing. She attended St. Catharines public schools and the Collegiate Institute. As a child she had attended Sunday school at St. Thomas' Church, and was an active member of the Anglican Young People's Association of St. Barnabas' Church. Latterly she had been a member of Grace Anglican Church.

She had lived all her life in St. Catharines, except for a short period when she lived in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia with her husband on active service.

Besides a wide circle of sorrowing friends and acquaintances, she is survived by her husband; her parents; an infant daughter, Mary Elizabeth; and two brothers, Edric and Donald, serving overseas with the Canadian Army.
