Spaniard's Bay -
Sarah Noseworthy
- Her family and friends were deeply shocked on Tuesday, April 9, when death came almost suddenly to Mrs. Sarah Noseworthy, 69, at the residence of her son here. On Sunday she spent the afternoon with her daughter at Harbour Grace and she spent part of the evening with another daughter, Effie. It was not until after she retired for the night that she took ill and suffered a severe paralytic stroke, she passed away on the following day.
Left a widow thirty-three years ago, she raised up her six children as only a devoted mother can. Her task was not an easy one, but her diligence coupled with a strong faith in God saw her through many anxious days. Ever a devout member of the Anglican Church, she was a constant worshipper in the parish church. She was a member of the C.E.W.A. for almost fifty years. As a neighbour she was always a tower of strength to those in sickness and bereavement, and her gentle and reassuring smile brought comfort to many. To her children she was a guiding light and her memory will be always green to them.
Her funeral was held on Thursday afternoon the Church of the Holy Redeemer where the Rev. E. Willis conducted the burial service. Interment was in the family plot.
Mourning their sad loss are two sons, George, with whom she resided, and Ernest in Shearstown; three daughters, Effie (Mrs. Richard G. Noseworthy), Livie (Mrs. William Barrett) in Spaniard's Bay, and Winnie (Mrs. Thomas Pike) in Harbour Grace, and twenty grandchildren. Another son, James, predeceased her by eleven months.
May her soul, through the mercy of God rest in peace.

Spaniard's Bay -
Herbert Lundrigan
, 877893 Canadian Army, a veteran of World Ward 1, passed away at his residence in Upper Island Cove on Thursday, April 11. He was 65.
Born in Upper Island Cove in 1897, he enlisted in the Canadian Army at Sydney, Nova Scotia, in March 1918.  He was wounded at Vimy Ridge on April 9, 1917, but he was not discharged until December, 1918. In February, 1919, he married Miss Mabel Hussey. For a number of years he worked on Bell Island and for a short while in Argentia until ill health forced him to relinquish the activities of normal living. He never complained, and he will be remembered by his family and friends as a man who possessed a pleasing personality, a sense of humour, and an understanding and sympathetic heart. His passing, which was unexpected, came as a severe blow to his wife and children who mourn an irreparable loss. He leaves three sons, Walter in Belfountain, Ontario, Rex in Toronto, Josiah at home: one daughter, Betty (Mrs. Alfred Smith) in Spaniard's Bay; nine grandchildren, two brothers, Walter in Whitbourne and Willis in Boston, Massachusetts; one sister, Mrs. Sarah Coombs, Upper Island Cove. His funeral with military honours, was held on Saturday afternoon to the church of St. Peter where the burial service was read by the Rev. E. House. The casket, draped by the Union Jack, was borne by Legionaires; at the graveside the Legion ritual was read by Comrade William Lunrdrigan. Funeral arrangements were under the direction of Messrs. John Young and Son.
To those who mourn the loss of a dear one we offer sincere sympathy.
