Last Thursday's issue of the Whitby Gazette and Chronicle contained the following sketch of the life of Mrs. Charles W. Scott, a former resident of Grimsby.
At her home on Euclid Street on Sunday, January 6th, the death occurred of Martha Elizabeth Victoria Eaton, beloved wife of Charles W. Scott.
The deceased had not been in good health for several years. In fact for the last 3 years at intervals her condition was quite serious, but through all her affliction she displayed remarkable fortitude and courage and with genuine Christian faith. The end came suddenly on Sunday.
The late Mrs. Scott had been a resident of Whitby for 18 years. The family came here from St. Catharines, and had also lived in Grimsby and the west. She had a very wide circle of friends. In religion she was a member of Whitby United Church.
The funeral was held on Tuesday afternoon, with a service at the home at 2:30 conducted by Rev. S.L. Toll. B.A., B.D., pastor of the United church, assisted by Rev. C.R. Carscallen, D.D., principal and governor of the Ontario Ladies' College. Interment was afterwards made in the Union Cemetery, the bearers being W.G.Augustus, Samuel Kempthorne, Chas. A. McClelland, Fred T. Rowe, Hugh Jeffry and F.L. Beecroft.
Left to mourn her loss are her husband, one daughter, Miss Winnifred Scott, A.T.C.M., of the staff of the Ontario Ladies' College, and one brother, Presley Eaton, in the west.
Floral tributes included wreaths from the Official Board of Whitby United Church, and from the Ontario Ladies' College, Whitby.
