Mrs. Mary S. Forsyth

After a short illness from pneumonia Mrs. Mary Sutherland Forsyth, beloved wife of Mr. Alex. Forsyth, 546 Twelfth street passed away on Wednesday afternoon at the age of sixty-three years. The late Mrs. Forsyth came to Manitoba in 1882 and was one of the pioneer teachers in the province. She was at one time a member of the teaching staff at the Okarese Indian Reserve near [E]Iphinstone, Man. For many years Mr. and Mrs. Forsyth were residents of the Newdale district where they are very well known. They moved to Brandon in 1908 to reside. The late Mrs. Forsyth has many friends both in Brandon and at Newdale who will regret her death. Besides her husband she is survived by one daughter, Miss Mary A. Forsyth, and one son, Mr. Donald S. Forsyth, B.A.

The remains will be shipped Friday to Newdale, Man., where interment will be made Friday afternoon.
