    • DEATH OF MRS. J. C. WILLARD

      Of Toronto Junction - To be Buried in Galt

      Mr. William Willard received a telephone message, early last evening, annolmcing the death of his son's wife, Mrs. J. C. Willard, at her home in Toronto Junction. She passed away at 5.30 o'clock yesterday afternoon. Her death was very sudden, a letter sent to her friends here on Saturday, saying that all the family were well. Mrs. Willard, whose maiden name was Lena Dardon, leaves a husband and two little boys. Her untimely taking off will be learned with regret in Galt, where she was known to quite a number. Mrs. William Willard left for Toronto Junction last evening, Mr. Willard going this morning.
