OBITUARY: G. Clenneth Brown
The death of G. Clenneth Brown, veteran of the First World War, occurred
early Wednesday at his home on Chapel Street, after an illness of only a few
days. His death resulted from a long standing heart condition which
developed from being gassed while on Overseas service from 1914-1918. He
enlisted with the 106th Canadian Regiment and later transferred to the 25th
with which he served in France until the end of the war. He was a member of
the B.E.S.L. branch No. 45. Fifty-two years of age, the deceased was a son
of G. Hibbert Brown and the late Adelia Lamb Brown of this town and was born
at Lakelands near here. An ardent hunter and fisherman, he spent a great
deal of time in the woods since ill health forced him to lead a lifew of
retirement. Only last week he had returned from a hunting trip with a party
of friends. Surviving are his wife, the former Gertrude Fraser of this town;
five children, Delores, Gwendolyn, Aleta, Floyd and Christopher, all at
home. Also, his father, G. Hibbert Brown; five brothers, Sanford in New
York; Harry in Skead, Ont.; Fred, serving with the Canadian Army in Italy;
Herbert in Pictou; and Jack, a Doctor of Entomology at the University of
Alberta in Edmonton; and four sisters, (Maud) Mrs. Lawrence Canning,
Springhill Junction; (Clara) Mrs. Clayton McCabe, of Oxford Junction; Alice
and Catherine, at home. The funeral service, conducted by Rev. C.R. Harris,
was held from his late residence on Friday afternoon and was largely
attended by comrades of the Canadian Legion, and by relatives and friends.
Interment was made in the Anglican Cemetery.
