Full Text

After living her allotted span and more, there passed peacefully away, on Wednesday morning last, a once familiar figure to the village and district of Beamsville for over 60 years, in the person of Mrs. Margaret Couse. She made many friends in every section of the province and also a host of warm personal friends during her long connection as mistress of the well-known and old-established hostelry known as the Couse House. She was a scion of a line of the original Moyer family, who came early to this section of the community. During her long residence in Beamsville, she kept in constant touch with people and affairs, and during her later years her greatest pleasure was in meeting and talking over old times with people who still remembered, as she did herself quite distinctly, the early history of the village and district.

In church matters she was an enthusiastic member of the Presbyterian church and a constant attendant at services. Some 5 years ago she went to Hamilton to stay with her youngest daughter, Mrs. Court Thomson, but made many return visits to her old home town. The last was three weeks ago, when, on arriving to spend a few days with her daughter, Mrs. G.S. Kerr, she took a bad spell of illness and never rallied.
