Full Text

Dora Evelyn Geddes, wife of William F. Geddes, Grimsby, died at the family residence, Main Street West, Saturday morning, December 13th, 1947, in her 75th year.

Born on the farm in North Grimsby Township, settled by her great-grandfather, John Smith, in 1874, daughter of the late George and Catherine Smith, she had lived there all her life with the exception of four years following her marriage, when she resided at Winona, Ontario.

Of United Empire Loyalist descent, she had always been greatly interested in the history of the development of this community and knew much of the affairs of the early settles here, and had collected much information on the genealogy of her own family. She was a member of the Church of England.

Besides her husband, she is survived by two sons, George I., of Hamilton, and Bruce F., of Grimsby, and one daughter, Catherine (Mrs. Charles Wade) of Kapuskasing, Ont.

Services were held in St. Andrew's Anglican Church, Grimsby on Monday at 2:30 p.m., interment being in St. Andrew's churchyard, Grimsby. Casket bearers were George and Bruce Geddes, Robert S. and Paul Smith, George Nelles and Dr. Cecil H. Rorabeck, Toronto.
