Another Prominent Resident Gone.
MRS. W. E. HALL PASSES AWAY MONDAY EVENING
Another of Blenheim's most highly respected residents answered the call of the grim reaper, on Monday night, when Mrs. W. E. Hall passed to the Great Beyond, after a lengthy illness. Deceased had been ailing for a number of years, and for the past two or three years had been ill most of the time. Last spring, after recovering from a lengthy illness, she left on a visit to her son Harold, at Winnipeg, but a few days after arriving there was again taken seriously ill, and she entered a Winnipeg hospital for treatment. Some weeks afterwards she was removed to Toronto, where she was forced to remain until a couple of months ago, before sufficiently recovered to complete the journey to her home here. After arriving home she seemed to improve for a time, and it was hoped by her many friends that she would ultimately regain her health again. About three weeks ago she took a turn for the worse, and from that time on she gradually became weaker, until the end came at a late hour Monday night. She had been a great sufferer, but bore her affliction with Christian patience. While the seriousness of her condition the past few weeks led many of her friends to believe that the end was not far distant, yet the news of her passing came as a great shock to her host of friends here.
She leaves to mourn her loss a husband - Mr. E. E. Hall - and three sons, - Harold, of Winnipeg, Fred and William, of Blenheim. She also leaves a mother - Mrs. Mabee, three sisters and one brother, all of whom were here to attend the funeral. The members of her own family, and her mother and one sister were present at her bedside before her death. The bereaved relatives have the heart-felt sympathy of the entire community in their sad loss. To their affliction is an added touch of sorrow by reason of the sickness of other members of the home. The deceased's youngest son, William, and her mother-in-law, Mrs. S. C. Hall, have both been confined to the house with illness, for some time.
The funeral service was conducted at the late residence, on Wednesday afternoon, by Rev. W. G. H. McAlister, pastor of the Methodist Church here, of which deceased had been a life-long and devout member. The remains were laid at rest in Evergreen cemetery.
