Full Text

Friday morning last, Maria Fields, beloved wife of Mr. F.J. Millar, North Grimsby, received her summons to the fuller life beyond and leaves to mourn her loss her husband, Mr. F.J. Millar, a sister, Mrs. Bessie Millar of Ann Arbor, Mich., a daughter, Mrs. Joseph Robertson, of Battle Creek, Mich., two grandsons, Fred Dean of Willow Run, Mich., and Robert Dean, of Battle Field, Mich., and 8 grandchildren.

Mrs. Millar was much interested in the welfare of others and thus was very active not only in her church, the Grimsby Baptist, Church, where she gave her time to the choir, the Mission Circle, the Women's Association, in the latter two of which she was the very efficient secretary, and in the Church school.

She was also active in the I.O.D.E. and during the war in the local Red Cross Society.

The funeral service held in the Baptist Church on Monday afternoon, February 3rd, was conducted by her minister, Rev. Geo. A. McLean, and was very largely attended. During the service Mrs. H. Cartner sang by request the appropriate hymn "We'll Say Goodnight Here, but Good Morning Up There". The large number of floral tributes showed the high esteem in which both Mrs. and Mr. Millar are held in the community.

The interment was made in Queen's Lawn Cemetery.
