Full Text

The death of Mrs. W.R. Leckie, widow of W.R. Leckie, who was city treasurer of Hamilton for many years, later residing in Grimsby for some years, breaks a link with the earlier days of Hamilton's social and philanthropic life. In failing health for some time, this well known and much beloved lady passed away at her home, 97 Maple Avenue, Sunday night.

Gracious and magnetic, her home for many years was a meeting place for young friends, on whom she exerted a beneficent influence. With her husband, Mrs. Leckie worked in the various departments of Wentworth church, which later was to become St. Andrew's church, and in charitable activities, and all that tended to advance the progress of the city, she was no less zealous. During the First World War, Mrs. Leckie organized and directed the work of the Women's auxiliary of the 58th Battalion, in which her son, Major Norman Leckie (who later lost his life), was an officer. Another interest dear to her was the work of the Y.W.C.A., of which board she was a member.

Mrs. Leckie was a native Hamiltonian and prior to her marriage was Isabella Ewing. Surviving are two daughters, Miss Belle Leckie, at home, and Mrs. George H. Richmond, of this city, and two sons, Rev. Neil Leckie, of Grimsby, and William Leckie of Hamilton; also 5 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren.
