Mrs. Rupert Canning

Fox River, Feb. 11 - There passed away at her home here on the morning of Feb. 6th, Margaret
Lewis, wife of Rupert Canning, at the age of fifty-two years.  She had been an invalid and a
great sufferer for years, yet she bore it with great patience.  She was loved and respected by
all who knew her, being a fine Christian character.  She was a member of the United Church at
Port Greville and the Women's Auxiliary, and when health permitted, very faithful to her
duties.  She was also a Pythian Sister.  Deceased is survived by her husband.
