Full Text

The funeral of the late Mrs. Margaret Lavinia George of Grimsby Beach which was held on Monday from the Stonehouse Funeral Parlors to Queen's Lawn Cemetery was largely attended by many friends. An impressive service was conducted by Rev. E.A. Earchman, assisted by Rev. W.H. Cline and Rev. H. Merritt. Mrs. George was a much-beloved christian woman, an Ojibway Indian of the very highest type. Through circumstances she was not able to attend school for more than a year, yet, through extensive and wise reading, she educated herself and by sacrifice and hard work strove to give to her daughter, Marjorie, the opportunities which an advanced education offered, always with the high ideal before her of doing something for her people as a nation. She lived in a small house in the woods at Grimsby Park for nearly a score of years and many a cottager will miss her cheery smile as she welcomed them when first opening their closed up cottages. She was in her 58th year and passed away at the St. Catharines General Hospital after a short illness of about a week.

Many beautiful flowers covered the casket. Among them were wreaths from the Women's Improvement society, from the Church Committee at the Park and from the Grimsby Beach Sunday School.

She leaves one daughter, Marjorie, to mourn her loss. The pallbearers were Messrs. P. Jordan, Charles Durham, Fred Jewson, H.A. Newton, E. Davis and a relative of the deceased, Mr. Claus.
