  • Notes 
    • Mrs. John W. Bell - The death occurred in Galt Hospital on Sunday, Sept. 15th. of Margaret Fraser, beloved wife of John Walter Bell, of Ayr. She was in her 68th year and had been ill for some time and death was not unexpected. She was a daughter of the late John and Mary Fraser and was born a few miles east of the village, where she had spent the greater part of her life. The late Mrs. Bell, a devoted wife and mother, was a member of Knox United Church and had retained her usual kindly interest in her church and the affairs of the community throughout the period of her lengthy illness. Surviving are: Her husband, John W. Bell; one son, William, Toronto; one daughter, Mrs. H. R. Beattie, London; one brother, John B. Fraser of Glenmorris; two sisters, Mrs. E. Fairbairn of St. Catharines and Mrs. George Cadwell of Drumbo. An infant daughter predeceased Mrs. Bell some years ago. Funeral services were held Tuesday afternoon at 3 30 o'clock at her late residence, Northumberland Street, Ayr. The services were in charge of Rev. J. W. Currie, pastor of Knox United Church, and the pallbearers were: W. Manson, J. Cochrane, H. Rutherford, G. Smye, J. Gordon and J. Myers.
