Obit (1924) - Mrs. Joseph HELM (nee Rhoda Jane HUNSLEY) _ & husband

I don't think the following obituary has been posted before:

June 24, 1943 Oxford Journal:
   Tidnish Bridge, June 17 - Mrs. Joseph Helm passed away at her home here on the morning of June 15.  Death was due to a heart condition, which had developed seriously in the past several months.  She was 81 years of age.
   Surviving besides her husband are several daughters:  Mrs. Roy Brooks, Attleboro, Mass.; Mrs. John Helm, Tidnish Bridge; Ms. John O'Brien, Newton, Mass.; and Mrs. Walter LeMay, Yonkers, N.Y.; also a foster daughter, Kathleen.  A son died in childhood many years ago.
   The late Mrs. Helm, formerly Miss Hunsley, was born at East Leicester, but with the exception of several years in the West, had spent the greater part of her life in this place.
   She had suffered for a long time from a chronic ailment, which of late years had kept her much confined to the house, but she was always pleased to have friends drop in to discuss the happenings of the community.  Possessed of a keen humor and a gift of mimicry, she could relate interesting stories of other days.  She will be much missed by the many persons who called at her home frequently.
   The funeral has been arranged for Thursday afternoon, with burial in Riverside Cemetery.

And here's the obituary for her husband from the Feb. 10, 1949 Halifax Chronicle Herald (previously posted by Deb Everitt):

AMHERST, Feb. 9 - The death of Joseph Horne Helm, lifelong resident of Tidnish Bridge and a native of Prince Edward Island, occurred Saturday morning, Feb. 5, at the age of 80 years.  Mr. Helm had been in failing health for several months prior to his death and had been a patient at Highland View Hospital for some time.  His passing will be received with general regret by his many friends throughout the county.  He is survived by one daughter, Mrs. Walter LeMay, Yonkers, N.Y., and three step-daughters, Mrs. Roy Brooks, Attleboro, Mass.; Mrs. John O'Brien, West Newton, Mass.; and Mrs. John Helm of Tidnish Bridge.  One foster daughter, Mrs. Roy Arsenault, Amherst, and several nieces and nephews, also survive.


Hope this helps someone,
Gerry
