MRS. W.F. CURTIS - DIED FRIDAY MORNING
Mrs. William F. Curtis, a pioneer mother of the Sarles vicinity passed peacefully away at her home Friday, October 24th, 1941 at 3:30a.m. after an illness of about four months.
She ran the journey of her life in 87 years. It is a path marked with deeds of kindness and cheer. Flowers, not thorns, sunshine, not shadow, did she scatter everywhere. With these she was lavish. Truth was the inspiration of her life and by kindness she exemplified its great worth. To the members of her family she always inquired of the sick and how they were getting along. Mrs. Curtis saw a devoted wife, a kind and loving mother and a host of friends and neighbours deeply sympathize with the bereaved family in this, their hour of sorrow.
Funeral services were held at the home at 2 o'clock and at the Presbyterian church in Sarles Sunday afternoon and was attended by a large number of her friends and relatives. Rev. Gailord of Calvin, pastor of the Presbyterian church officiating and paying a beautiful tribute to the memory of the deceased. The choir rendered several beautiful numbers. At the close of the service the funeral procession proceeded to the Sarles cemetery where interment was made. The pallbearers were Peter Holmes, W.H. Brumwell, Ole Oakland, Peter Naismith, George Mirehouse and James MacLean.
Those from a distance who attended the funeral were Mr. & Mrs. Oscar Oyos of Nekoma and Mr. & Mrs. Palmer Freed of Valley City.
