Spaniard's Bay -
Minnie Greeley -
Wednesday, March 22, was just another day for Mrs. Minnie Greeley, wife of Maxwell Greeley. She did her housework and prepared the meals for herself and her husband. Sometime after tea she chatted with some of her neighbours by phone and in her tender way pitied anyone who might need a doctor and the roads in such a frightful conditions. Little did she or they think that in less than an hour she would be the patient in distress. For having finished her phone calls, Mrs. Greeley added fuel to the kitchen fire and sat in a rocker. Two hours later, despite the fact that medical aid did arrive, she slipped quietly and peacefully away.
She was the former Minnie Yetman, daughter of the late Clement and Elfreda Yetman of Harbour Grace, and she was in her fiftieth year.
She was a quiet, unassuming person, and seemed to have a kind word for all. It was only a couple of months ago that her aged mother-in-law passed away and some time before that her father-in-law, both of whom were lovingly cared for by her, and it was because of her devotion to them that Mrs. Greeley kept close to her home. She will indeed be sadly missed by those who knew and loved her.
Mourning their sad loss are her husband, four brothers, Pierce at Bell Island, Wilfred at Toronto, Malcolm at St. John's and Herbert at Harbour Grace, four sisters, Pearl (Mrs. Norman Reid) at St. John's, (Mrs. Fred Kearley) at Bell Island, Myra (Mrs. Adams) at Harbour Grace and Dorothy (Mrs. Leonard Sheppard) at Harbour Grace, also a number of nephews and nieces.
Burial took place at Spaniard's Bay on Friday afternoon following services in the Church of the Holy Redeemer and conducted by Rev. E. Willis.
To those bereaved we offer sincere sympathy.
