I have just received obituary for:
Mrs. Charlotte [Rowe] Palmer, a resident of Virden for nearly 90 years passed away in Assiniboine Hospital Brandon on Dec. 5, 1973.
Mrs. Palmer was born at Mitchell Ontario on August 28, 1874. She spent 87 years in Virden and was one of the first resident of the Sherwood [nursing home] when it was built. She had been a patient in Assiniboine hospital for the past two months. She was a member of the United Church.
She is survived by two daughters Mrs. Matilda Hughes and Mrs. Florence Barnaby both of Winnipeg.
There are four grandchildren, 15 great grandchildren and nine great great grandchildren. She was predeceased by her husband John T. Palmer in 1913. The funeral service was held in Carscadden funeral chapel Virden on December 8 with Rev. Ken Bauman officiating.
Pallbearers were Harold Shoemaker, Garry Williams, Harvey Cochrane, Norman Sexsmith, Bob Sararas and Cecil Coleman. Interment was in Virden Cemetery.
Are there descendants who may have more information on these families?
