Harbour Grace
Samuel Snow
- Another of the older citizens of Harbour Grace was called Home at ten o'clock on Sunday morning, January 6, when death came to Mr. Samuel Snow, a well-known and highly respected resident. The deceased had been in fairly good health up to a few weeks ago when it was found necessary that he enter the General Hospital. On December 27 he underwent an operation from which it appeared that he was making satisfactory progress. He later contracted pneumonia and this attack proved too much for an already weakened system and he failed to rally. On Sunday morning as the bell of St. Paul's Church, where Mr. Snow had been a regular attendant, was calling worshippers, Rev. Mr. Ludlow broke the news to the family that the husband and father had entered into rest. The late Samuel Snow was born at Harbour Grace seventy-six years ago and was a son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Hugh Snow. For twenty-five years he had been a faithful and conscientious employee of the firm of R. E. McRae & Sons, terminating his work there when the firm went out of business. A devoted father and husband, an upright citizen and a good churchman, the deceased was held in esteem by all who know him. He was a member of the Loyal Orange Association and his regular attendance at Lodge meetings set the example for others.

Left to mourn are his widow, the former Miss Minnie Snow, five sons, Henry of Newcastle on Tyne, England, who last winter spent some months visiting his parents here; Rev. Arthur, Rector of Port Wallace, N.S.; Hugh and Harold at New York, and Edgar at St. John's; two daughters, Julia (Mrs. Andrew W. Tedtsen) and Jean, both residing at New York; one sister, Hannah (Mrs. Stephen French) of West Lynn, Mass., and six grandchildren. To the sorrowing family sincere sympathy is extended. The funeral, which had been delayed pending the arrival of three member of the family from the United States, took place on Wednesday to St. Paul's Church, the service for burial, having been taken by Rev. L. A. J. Ludlow. Interment was in the family plot at the Church of England Cemetery.

Cyril Jewer
, twelve-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. William Jewer, formerly of Spaniard's Bay, was laid to rest here on Monday afternoon. The service in the parish church and the committal prayers in the cemetery were read by the rector, Rev. Canon T. E. Loder. The little laid had been living in a foster home in a Trinity Bay community, and death we understand, was caused by leukemia. To those who mourn we offer our sincere sympathy.

Mercer - Seymour Wedding

The marriage took place at Holy Redeemer Church, Spaniard's Bay, on Thursday, December 20, at 7 p.m. of Freda, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Seymour, Spaniard's Bay, and Jack, son of the late Mr. and Mrs. William Mercer of Upper Island Cove. The double ring ceremony was performed by the Rector, Rev. Canon T. E. Loder, and the music was supplied by the Church organist.
The bride, given in marriage by her father, looked lovely in her floor-length gown of white nylon tulle and lace over shimmering satin, with matching lace bolero. Her fingertip veil was held in place by a coronet of pearls and she carried a bouquet of red roses and white carnations.
The maid of honour was Miss Mary Seymour, sister of the bride, who was attractively gowned in lime green nylon tulle over taffeta. Her bouquet consisted of green and white carnations.
Miss Myra Mercer, the groom's sister, and Mrs. Cecil Rex, as bridesmaids, wore gowns of green and mauve respectively and carried bouquets of carnations in contrasting colours. Their headdresses were feathered halos in shades matching their gowns.
Two delightful little flower girls were Paula Vaughn and Margaret Lynch who were prettily dressed in floor-length gowns of white nylon tulle and lace over satin, with matching bonnets. They carried baskets of pink and white baby mums.
Mr. Maxwell Farrell performed the duties of best man. The groom's other attendants were Thomas Mercer and Bertram Seymour. Ushers were Calvin Seymour and Cecil Rex.
During the signing of the register, the hymn "Lead Us, Heavenly Father, Lead Us" was rendered by Mr. Lewis E. Gosse.
Following the ceremony, the wedding party and guest motored to Pike's Hotel, Harbour Grace, where the reception was held and the usual toasts honoured.
The happy couple are now residing at St. John's where the groom is employed with the fire department at Fort Pepperrell, and the bride is an employee of Colonial Cordage Ltd. We join with their many friends in wishing them many years of wedded happiness.
