Mrs. Mercy Giles. Victoria, 6 Jan --- The death occurred at Victoria on Christmas Day (1928) of the oldest resident in that community, Mrs. Mercy Giles, at the advanced age of 98 [sic] years 7 months. Born on the farm on which she died, Mrs. Giles had lived the greater portion of her life on the homestead on which she died. Before her marriage, she was Mercy Henney. She will be remembered for her kindly acts and generous hospitality, loving and loved by all. She had been confined to her room for some five years with rheumatism and those who visited her will recall her cheerful mood, always looking beyond her own suffering to something brighter. She is survived by a family of 12 children, Mrs. Sadie Mosher, Newton, Mass; Mrs. Margaret Clarke, New York; Mrs. Mary Jones, New York; Mrs. Annie Rompkey, Watertown; James, Newton; Robert, New York; Mrs. Rebecca Crowley, Streets Ridge; Mrs. Martha Guilderson, West Pugwash; Mrs. Clara Woodlock, West Pugwash; John, David and Leo, at home. The funeral services were conducted by Father McDonald of Pugwash and were largely attended. She was laid to rest beside her husband, the late Thomas Giles, who predeceased her some six years. Interment took place at LeRoy.
