Many friends in Beamsville, Grimsby and district will learn with regret of the death in San Diego, California, on Saturday, Nov. 11, 1922, of Sarah Rodgers of Beverly street, Toronto, and formerly of Beamsville. Miss Rodgers had gone to California to attend the funeral of her brother-in-law, F.H. Ross, some weeks ago, and had intended spending the winter in the south. Miss Rodgers was born in Beamsville in 1863, the third daughter of Bernard Rodgers of the Commercial Hotel, and had spent the greater part of her life there until removing to Toronto. Surviving are a brother, James C., of St. Catharines; a sister, Mrs. F.H. Ross, of San Diego, Cal., and a niece, Mrs. Arthur E. House, of Ypsilanti, Mich. The remains were brought to Beamsville and interred from the funeral parlors of J.W. Buck & Son in Mount Hope cemetery on Friday, Nov. 17, the Rev. William Cooper conducting the services. The pallbearers were W.D. Fairbrother, George S. Karr, Robert McCauley, W.H. Orth, V.S., W.B. Parker, W.J. Reid. Miss Rodgers' kindly, genial popularity was attested to by the floral tributes and large cortege. Among those present from a distance were James C. Rodgers of St. Catharines, Mrs. F.H. Ross of San Diego, California, Robert Rugg of Winnipeg, Mrs. Lomas of Montreal, Mrs. William Dunmead and Mrs. Bottomley of Niagara Falls,, Mr. and Miss Furness of Oakville, Mrs. A.E. House of Ypsilanti, Mich., and J.B. Field, of Detroit. A peculiar circumstance is that Miss Rodgers' brother, Frank B., was buried on Nov. 19,one year ago.
