OBITUARY - Edward Desmond
The funeral for the late Edward Desmond, well known resident of Parrsboro,
who passed away on Oct 5th, was held from St. Brigid's Church on Monday,
October 7th, with Rev. Father McCarthy officiating. The hymns sung by the
choir were: "Ave Sanctissima" and "Wilt Thou Look Upon Me Mother?". The
pall-bearers were: A. McInnes, W. Wylie; B. Sheck and G.A. Gillespie. The
sudden death of the deceased had shocked the entire town and district. He
had worked the previous day and had not complained of being sick, but at an
early hour in the morning aroused his family who immediately rushed for
medical aid. He died in a few minutes of the heart action. The late Mr.
Desmond was a son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Richard Desmond of this town. He
leaves to mourn his loss his wife, one daughter, Audrey, at home; one
brother, John, of Parrsboro; and four sisters, Elizabeth (Mrs. Thomas
Antle); Liza (Mrs. E. Dryden); Alice (Mrs. C. Willigar); and Annie (Mrs.
George Pleshaw), of Framington, Mass. Another brother, Captain Daniel
Desmond, was lost at sea two years ago.
