OBITUARY: John W. Morris
Parrsboro, February 23 - There passed away after a very short illness at his
home on Temple Street, an old and respected citizen, John W. Morris. Many
years ago he moved from Port Greville to Parrsboro. He helped to build many
ships at both places. His sterling character and his pleasant disposition
endeared him to all. His wife predeceased him some years ago. There were
born to the late Mr. and Mrs. Morris, nine children, seven of whom are left
to mourn, Mrs. James Lunn, Mrs. Capt. Harry Ogilvie, Mrs. Hubert Canning, of
Parrsboro; Mrs. George Fraser, Mrs. Burton Knowlton, of Parrsboro Shore;
Stanley F., of New Glasgow; Gordon A., of Sommerville, Mass. The funeral was
held from the home of Mrs. James Lunn, Saturday, February 24th, Rev. Mr.
Wright of Grace Methodist Church conducting the service, which was largely
attended. The pallbearers were Mr. Fred Sterling, Percy Sterling, Capt. Fred
Ogilvie and Mr. Foster. Our sympathy is extended to the bereaved ones at
this time.
