Smithville Review - One of the most well-known and highly respected residents of this district in the person of Thomas Ira Kettle passed away at the Toronto General Hospital on Tuesday, Feb. 6, 1923, as announced in The Review last week. Mr. Kettle had suffered from asthma for over 10 years, and had been in very poor health during the past year. In November last he went to the Toronto Hospital for careful nursing and treatment, and where he gradually improved. A short time ago he contracted influenza but his condition was not considered serious until early Monday morning, when a collapse came as a complete shock to doctors and nurses. Mrs. Kettle was hurriedly summoned to his bedside, where she remained until he passed away Tuesday morning. The remains were conveyed to the family residence in South Grimsby, where the funeral was held on Friday, February 9th, at 2 p.m., when a large number of friends and relatives gathered to pay their last tribute of respect to Mr. Kettle. Interment took place in the Union cemetery, Smithville, the pall bearers being Canadian Foresters, the deceased being a member of that society. Thomas Kettle was born June 9th, 1874, and had lived on the farm where the family now reside since he was five years of age. When he was 15 years of age his father died, and his mother, Margaret Hope, predeceased him about 10 years ago. He was the only child by the second marriage. He married Laura T. Pyscher, and six children were born to them. His widow and three sons, Kenneth, Alfred and Robert survive him. Hope, Ivan and Margaret died some years ago. He also leaves to mourn his loss two sisters and two brothers; Mrs. M.O. Merritt, Smithville; Mrs. R.S. Patterson, Vancouver, B.C.; William Tait, Cleveland; Alfred Kettle, Kansas City; one sister, Edith Kettle, and one brother, John Kettle, predeceased him. Mr. Kettle was a man of cheerful and kindly disposition, even during his illness. He was a good neighbour and was well liked by all who knew him. He will be greatly missed by a wide circle of sorrowing friends in this community.
