Full Text

There passed away at her home in Beamsville on Saturday afternoon, Agnes Kirkwood Allan, wife of the late Hugh Sinclair, for many years Postmaster of Beamsville. Deceased was a native of the village and was of Scotch-Irish descent. She had a strong affection for her native town and district and for all those of her early days who played an important part in establishing it. Her interests were mainly in her home. She found her greatest interests in that and her flower garden. She bore her years lightly until about four months ago when she was confined to her room. She outlived many of her contemporaries, but her home and family were the better for her wholesome influence. Her knowledge of events and personalities of the early days of the village were great. Her passing leaves a void that is much regretted. She leaves to mourn her loss, three sons, James A., William and John, present Postmaster of the Village; one daughter, Annie, at home, and two grandsons, Jack, overseas and Donald, of St. Catharines. A private funeral was held from her home Monday afternoon, with burial in Mount Osborne Cemetery.
