Friends and relatives in the Grimsby and Beamsville district were shocked to hear of the sudden passing on Friday, December 15th, of Minnie Davis, daughter of the late David Davis, of Beamsville, and wife of the late B.W.N. Grigg, of Waterloo. She was in her 60th year.
Thursday morning, Mrs. Grigg sat down in her rocking chair to glance over the newspaper, part of which her son Leonard was reading nearby. In a short time he asked her if she was nearly finished, to which she replied in a peculiar voice, "Take it."
Before he could reach her side, she was unconscious and failed to rally, passing away Friday evening.
There remain to mourn the loss of a devoted mother, one daughter and two sons, all in Waterloo, Dorothy (Mrs. Hugh MacLean); David and Leonard, and one sister, Mrs. A.H. Dancy, of Toronto.
Mr. H. Griffith, of Grimsby, a cousin, and Mrs. Loyal Davis, sister-in-law, Mrs. Dawe and Miss Dawe, of Beamsville attended the funeral which was held on Monday. Interment took place in the Waterloo cemetery.
