In Memoriam

There passed peacefully away at Port Rexton after an illness of only 4 months, Stanley Butler, at the age of 30 years. He was the only son of Mrs. Mary and the late Daniel Butler (who was killed at Port Union 27 years ago). Left to mourn his passing are his mother, and two sisters, Nellie, Mrs. C. Penny of Champneys West, and Daphne, Mrs. S. Drover (Ranger) of Lamaline, and many relatives and friends.

He was a member of the L.O.A., the R.B.P., and the Blackledge Club, and was one of the most promising of our young men. Energetic and industrious he filled a worthwhile place in the community.

He was laid to rest on July 22nd. The funeral service was conducted by Rev. Henry Ploughman, a chaplain in the Royal Canadian Navy, who was home on leave. The funeral cortege was preceded by the L.O.A. and a large number of mourners attended to pay their last respects and the church was filled to capacity.

The hymns were as follows: At the Church, "On the Resurrection Morning", "Who knows how near our end may be." At the cemetery, "Abide With Me". At the home, "How bright these glorious spirits shone", and "There is a blessed home".

The family wish to thank all friends who in any way assisted them during their bereavement and the following for:
