Full Text

A wide circle of friends sincerely regretted to learn of the passing of Helena M. Smith, elder daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W.E. Smith, Main Street West, North Grimsby, whose death occurred on Friday last following a lengthy illness. The deceased who was 32 years of age was born in Ralston, Pa., but had resided in North Grimsby practically all her life.

The late Miss Smith was a member of St. Andrew's Anglican Church where she was an active worker in the Church Guild. She was of a happy and cheerful disposition and was beloved not only in the family circle where she will be sorely missed, but by a large circle of friends.

Left to mourn her passing besides her parents are one sister, Mrs. E.H. Farrell, Grimsby, and two brothers, Robert S. and Paul S. at home.

The funeral which was largely attended was held from the home of her parents on Monday afternoon at which Rev. J.A.Ballard officiated. Interment was made in Queen's Lawn Cemetery.

The pallbearers were Messrs. George and Bruce Geddes, Malcolm Nelles, Nelles Rutherford, Gilbert Wade and Lester Turnbull.

Among the beautiful floral tributes sent by friends was a wreath from the North Grimsby Township Council of which Mr. Smith is a member.

The family will have the heartfelt sympathy of the community in their sad bereavement.
