    • Mrs. J. A. Gillespie Passes In 67th Year

      One of the district's most respected citizens, Mrs. J. Albert Gillespie died at her home, South Dumfries, on Saturday, following an illness of several weeks. She was 66 years of age.

      Born Mary Carrick at "Cedar Nook Farm" on the Roseville Road, North Dumfries, she was a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Robert J. Carrick. Following her marriage, 41 years ago, she came to "Richmond Place" farm, where she resided until her death.

      Mrs. Gillespie was active in community and church work, being a member of Knox United Church and a life member of the Kate M. Thomson Auxiliary. She also took a leading part in the activities of the Blenheim Dumfries Farm Women's Club.

      Surviving, besides her husband, are three sons, Robert J. of Windsor, George T., North Dumfries, and Hugh C., at home, and a daughter, Jennette, at home. Two sisters, Miss Margaret L. Carrick, Banff, B.C., and Mrs. George P. Moore (Nettie), North Dumfries, also survive. There are six grandchildren.

      The Funeral

      The funeral, which was largely attended, was held from her late residence on Tuesday afternoon, with service conducted by Rev. W. D. Goodger, assisted by Rev. J. W. Currie. Interment was made in Ayr Cemetery. The pallbearers were all nephews, Donald Moore, John D. Moore, Robert E. Ford, John Gillespie, Cameron Edgar and Sherwood Taylor. Bearing the profusion of flowers were six neighbors: Alden Cochrane, Roland Maeder, Clifford Faus, Peter Gourlay, John Easton and John A. Manson.

      During the service Mrs. Norman R. Morton and R. A. McRuer sang, "The Lord's My Shepherd," accompanied by Mrs. R. A. McRuer.
