Death came suddenly to Margaret Dixon, wife of G. Lorne Book, of Grimsby East, on Friday in Hamilton. Mrs. Book had gone to Hamilton in the forenoon accompanied by her daughter, Mrs. George Marr, of Winona, and they had just sat down in the 3:10 car for the return journey when Mrs. Book was seized with heart failure. Medical aid was summoned but life was extinct when the doctor arrived. Mrs. Book was 65 years of age and was formerly Miss Margaret Dixon of Hamilton, coming to Grimsby on her marriage in 1893. She is survived by her husband, two daughters, Mrs. George Marr, of Winona, Miss Lorna, at home, and a brother, James Dixon, of Hamilton. The funeral took place on Monday, January 22, from her late home, Grimsby East, to St. Andrew's Anglican cemetery, the Rev. L.H. Currie, of St. John's Presbyterian Church, the Rev. J. Allan Ballard, of St. Andrew's, officiating. The pallbearers were Archie, Ewart, Rhodes and Robert Dixon, C.H.K. Baillie and Robert Gooderham.
