Gillies, Reeve of South Dumfries township, in her 67th year. Deceased had been ailing for a number of Years and an operation was decided upon as a final resort to improve her condition. She was removed to the Galt Hospital, where an operation was performed on Tuesday. From the effects of this she failed to rally and passed quietly away on Friday morning at 11.30 o'clock. Mrs. Gillies was born on the farm now occupied by Clifford Faus, concession 7, South Dumfries, and had lived in this vicinity during the whole of her lifetime. Her parents, the late Mr. and Mrs. Peter Marshall, were numbered among the old settlers of the district and were widely and favorably known. The late Mrs. Gillies was highly esteemed by a host of friends for her many fine qualities. While she took a deep interest in church work, and was an active member of the Kate M. Thomson Auxiliary, her chief activities were centred in her home where she will be missed the most. She was a former member of Stanley street Church and later Knox United. Besides her husband she is survived by three children, as follows: Marshall, Margaret and William, all at home; also by two sisters and a brother, Mrs. James Murray and Mrs. Robert Cochrane, Sr., Ayr, and Anthony Marshall, Tisdale, Sask. The funeral took place to the Ayr Cemetery on Monday afternoon and was largely attended by many sorrowing friends and relatives.

Rice sang the appropriate solo, "To Thee I Fly."
