- Henry Guthrie Passes
Native of South Dumfries Township Was in His 85th Year-Prominent Farmer
Robert Henry Guthrie, a highly-esteemed and respected resident of South Dumfries township, passed away in Victoria Hospital, London, on Saturday, October 20th, in his 85th year. Mr. Guthrie was born on the 9th concession of Blenheim township, being a son of Robert Guthrie and Jane Manson, Scottish pioneers.
In his early twenties, he settled on the farm in South Dumfries where he had since resided. He was always keenly interested in agriculture and operated his farm successfully for some sixty years.
Mr. Guthrie was a man of strong, upright character, always upholding the best interests of his country and the community in which he lived.
He was a member of St. Paul's United Church, Paris, and prior to church union was a member of the session of the Presbyterian Church for a period of thirty years. He also was a teacher and superintendent of the Paris Plains Sunday School for a number of years.
Mrs. Guthrie, whose maiden name was Esther Ritchie, predeceased him in 1932.
He is survived by a sister, Mrs. Murdo McRae; one son, Robert E. Guthrie, and four daughters, Mrs. John Kyle, Mrs. Thomas Kelley, Mrs. Theodore Sayles, and Miss Margaret, at home; also fourteen grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.
The funeral services, which were largely attended, took place Tuesday afternoon from his late residence, Crystal Spring Farm, 4th concession of South Dumfries, with interment being made in Ayr Cemetery. Rev. R. M. Geiger, B.A., conducted the services and brought messages of comfort to the bereaved. There were many beautiful floral tributes. The pallbearers were six grandsons: Wilbur Guthrie, Robert, Clarence and Thomas Sayles, Kingsburgh and Robert Kyle.
