Early on Friday morning the citizens...pained to learn of the sad and sudden death of Charles Woolverton Fritshaw, who passed away during the early morning after a brief illness from the Flu followed by pneumonia. Deceased had been ill less than a week and his sudden demise following that of his father by one month came as a great shock to his many friends. Mr. Fritshaw was a very progressive farmer and an extremely hard worker and his activities in this line had so depleted his system that he was physically unfit to withstand a heavy sickness. Deceased was in his 37th year. Charlie Woolverton Fritshaw was born on the farm on which he died 35 years ago and by his kind and loving disposition made friends of all with whom he came in contact. Any work he undertook he gave his untiring efforts to push it to a success, and will be greatly missed by a host of friends. He leaves to mourn his loss, a sorrowing widow and baby son, his aged mother, one sister, Mrs. H.J. Potter of St. Catharines and two brothers, Chester H. of Napa, California and A. Moote, of Tisdale, Sask. The funeral took place on Monday afternoon Feb. 24th from his late residence to St. Luke's cemetery, Smithville. The pallbearers were Harry McCulloch, William Patterson, Ray McCollum, Thompson Wilcox, James Book and Elmer Durham.
