A bright young life passed early on Saturday morning, at her home on Paton Street of Mary Minerva, beloved wife of Clarence W. Lewis.
Deceased had had a protracted illness and while her demise was not entirely unexpected by her great circle of friends and acquaintances, still it was a shock.
Born in Collingwood 41 years ago, the youngest daughter of William and the late Mrs. Copeland, she came to Grimsby with her parents to reside in 1919. She was married in June, 1926.
Mrs. Lewis was a woman if jovial disposition and fine ideals and her passing is a great loss to this community. She was a member of Trinity United Church and had always been an active worker in the various church organizations, and within these bodies she will be greatly missed.
Surviving, besides her husband, is one son, William, her father and one sister, Miss Etta Copeland of Grimsby.
Funeral services were held from her late home on Tuesday afternoon and were very largely attended by friends and acquaintances from all points of the district. Rev. W.J. Watt officiated at the home and graveside. Floral tributes were most numerous and beautiful and attested to the high esteem in which she was held by the people of this district.
Casket bearers were Gordon Hannah, James Dunham, Gordon May, John Lewis, Cecil Gowland, Armand Hummell.
