The New, Alexandria, Ont., Friday, March 1, 1907 pg. 1, col 5.
Among those who attended the funeral of the late Mrs. W. Kennedy on Tuesday was Mrs. Harris, of Metcalfe, who drove 20 miles through Monday’s snow storm to South Indian in order to be present to pay her last tribute of respect to her deceased friend.
Though not entirely unexpected, the death of Mrs. Wm. Kennedy, nee Mildred Garner, on Sunday is deeply regretted by our citizens. This sad event took place at the residence of her mother, Main St., North and succeeded an illness extending over several months.
The deceased was the eldest daughter and the last surviving child of the late Benjamin Garner Esq., and was predeceased, within a few short period by her father, her brother, and her sister, the late Mr. Wm. Delray.
Besides her widowed mother she is survived by and old daughter. (this is an error, should be older daughter I would think, RR)
On Tuesday the funeral took place to the Maxville Cemetery, service being conducted by Rev. J. Pirie assisted by Revs. J. T. Daley and R. McKay.
The heartfelt sympathy of the entire community is extended to the sorely bereaved friends.
