  • Notes 
    • Mrs. A. R. Melvin

      The death occurred in Galt Hospital on Thursday morning at five o'clock of Mrs. Albert R. Melvin, in her 59th year, following an illness of several weeks duration. Some three weeks ago, she had been removed to the hospital for treatment, and, following a major operation on Monday, survived but a few days. Deceased, whose maiden name was Jean Armour Cuthbertson, was born in Ayr, where she spent practically her entire lifetime. Of a quiet and unassuming disposition, her time and attention were mainly occupied in looking after the needs of her home and family, where her presence will be sadly missed. She was also highly esteemed as a friend and neighbor and her sudden passing will be much regretted. Deceased was for many years a faithful member of the former Methodist Church and, subsequently, Knox United Church. She was married some 33 years ago to Albert R. Melvin who, together with the following three sons, survives: Hugh, David of Walkerville and Albert. Four brothers also survive, viz.: William, London; John, Collinsville, Ill.; Thomas D., Toronto, and David, Ayr. The funeral took place on Saturday afternoon to the Ayr Cemetery and was attended by many relatives, friends and neighbors. The many beautiful floral tributes included offerings from the Staff of the Canadian Bank of Commerce, Walkerville; C. P. R. Bridge and Building Gang, employees of the John Watson Mfg. Co., Ayr Bowling Club, Canadian Order of Foresters, Women's Institute, as well as from relatives and friends. Rev. J. W. Currie had charge of the services, while the pallbearers were: J. C. Swan, J. E. Urquhart, Dr. A. R. Robertson, J. W. Henderson, R. F. McGrogan and William Woolsey.
