Full Text

A pioneer of the Grimsby district in the person of Rosetta Prudhomme Smith, widow of the late J. Henry Smith, passed away at her home in North Grimsby on Tuesday, May 16, 1922, in her 80th year. Mrs. Smith was born in Beamsville in July 1842, the daughter of Charles Prudhomme and Maria Boughner, and had spent the greater part of her life in this district. On a visit to an aunt in Strathroy she met and married Robert C. McGregor, living in that town for a few years, and on his death returned to Beamsville. Nearly half a century ago she married Mr. Smith who predeceased her in 1899, and for some years they lived in Colorado where he had extensive mining interests. Selling their interests there, they returned to Grimsby and built the beautiful home west of the town which was a social rendezvous and the scene of many brilliant gatherings. Mrs. Smith was taken ill some weeks ago and seemed on the road to recovery, but a lapse followed by pneumonia caused a quick failing which advanced age could not endure. She was a devoted member of the Beamsville Church of Christ and the Rev. S.M. Jones, pastor of that congregation, conducted the funeral services at Queen's Lawn Cemetery on Thursday, May 18. The pallbearers were six members of the congregation: W. Comfort, Robert Hoffman, Wilson House, C.R. Snure, Charles Watterworth and R.S. Williams.
