, 43, of Bishop's Cove, passed away at the St. John's General Hospital, on Sunday, October 2, following a short illness.
The late Mr. Smith had been employed as a miner with Dosco on Bell Island for a number of years. While at work less than two weeks ago he was stricken ill and was sent to St. John's for appendectomy, but his almost sudden death four days later was indeed a severe shock to his family and friends. The sympathy of the whole community goes out to them in their bereavement. Besides an aged father, he is mourned by his wife, Isabelle, three sons, Arthur of Tilton and Mark of Bishop's Cove; six sisters, Mary (Mrs. Thomas Gosse), Winnie (Mrs. Ken Drover), Emma (Mrs. Elmer Gosse), Provie (Mrs. Richard Sheppard), Emily (Mrs. William Adams) and Beckie (Mrs. Harvey Peddle, Hamilton.)
The funeral was held on Tuesday with Rev. W. D. Mercer officiating at the services at St. John's Church, Bishop's Cove, and he was laid to rest in the family plot in the Anglican Cemetery.
May his soul rest in peace.
