Full Text

The many friends of Mr. and Mrs. G. L. Biggar, Winona, were greatly shocked on Friday last to learn of the death of Mrs. Biggar on Thursday, July 3, after a brief illness of a few hours. Mrs. Biggar was the second daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Richard Johnson, Grimsby, popularly known to her friends and schoolmates in Grimsby as Belle. She was married just a few years ago and her demise at the age of 29 years was a great shock to her husband, as well as to her neighbours and acquaintances. The deceased lady had not been very strong for some time, but was as well as usual Thursday morning, but early in the day she was stricken down, and within ten hours was dead. It is supposed that internal hemmorhages were the cause. The funeral took place on Sunday afternoon, July 6, and was very largely attended by people who were acquainted with the deceased lady and her husband. Services were held at the house and graveside by the Rev. Mr. Daniels, pastor of the Stoney Creek Methodist Church. The interment took place at Fruitland cemetery. The deceased lady is survived by her husband, one son, 2 years, her parents, three sisters and three brothers.
