Spaniard's Bay, August 19 -
Mrs. Elizabeth Peddle
passed away at the home of her daughter in Toronto on Friday, August 8, following a brief illness in her eighty-first year.
Aunt Lizzie was well and favourably known in Spaniard's Bay, where she has lived for most of her days. In recent years she had been living in Toronto but even then she made an annual visit to her home. Her last visit was made here last summer, and on the day of her return we took her with us to Torbay Airport. Her jovial disposition helped us a great deal that day as it has helped many others down through the years. She was never one to look on the gloomy side of life, and at eighty she was able to tell us that it is time enough to start worrying when one gets old. She was as kind as she was cheerful. She was a faithful Anglican and an excellent church worker. As a member of the C.E.W.A. she was awarded, in absentia, just a few months back, a certificate indicating that she had served that church organization faithfully for forty years or more.
Mourning the loss of a loving mother are three sons, Edward at Spaniard's Bay, Walter in Toronto and Ronald Stirling in New York; two daughters, Mary (Mrs. Augustus Sheppard), New York, and Marcie (Mrs. William A. Mercer), with whom she resided in Toronto, as well as a large number of grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Her remains were brought here on Thursday and burial was on Friday with the Rev. H. M. Batten officiating. Mrs. Lewis R. Gosse was the organist for the burial service in Holy Redeemer Church.
"Rest eternal grant her, O Lord, and let light perpetual shine upon her"
