Full Text

Mrs. Albert M. Snyder, of Abingdon, the former Jessie Bush, died Monday at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Alex Salmon, Binbrook Township. In her 82nd year, she was born in Caistor Township on May 1, 1868, a daughter of the late Thomas and Caroline (Green) Bush. Marrying in February 1892, she and her husband farmed at Abingdon until 1906 when they took over a general store there which she operated until last year. In younger life she had sung in the choir of the Abingdon Baptist Church, of which she was a member, and, until failing health prevented it, she took an active part in all church activities.

Her husband predeceased her 26 years ago. Surviving are two daughters, Mrs. Alex Salmon (Myrtle), of Binbrook Township, and Mrs. George Reed (Ann), of Burlington; four grandchildren; also four sisters, Mrs. Wallace Young and Mrs. John McDougall, Caistor Township; Mrs. Udorah Stewart, Grimsby and Mrs. William McKinnell, South Grimsby Township, and a brother, Murray Bush, Caistor township. Four sisters and a brother predeceased her. Remains are resting at the Merritt Funeral Home, Smithville, for service today at 2:30 p.m. Interment will be made in Abingdon Baptist Cemetery.
