      Deaths

      Mrs. William G. MacKenzie

      The many friends of Mrs. William G. MacKenzie were shocked to hear of her death in Pleasant Home Hospital at five o'clock, January 16. Although not in very robust health, she was able to take care of her home and mix with her friends and relatives in a social way until January second, when she became seriously ill. She was taken to the hospital where all medical skill, good nursing and loving care could not save her life.

      Elizabeth Mary Blades, younger daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Blades, was born April 17, 1886, at the farm home, two and one-half miles north of Cass City, where she spent her life until she was united in marriage with William G. MacKenzie, Jan. 9, 1913. Then they came to the farm home, one mile east and 2 miles north, where she resided until her death.

      To this union was born one daughter, Marie Elizabeth, who is still at home, to console her father in their loss. She also leaves her mother, Mrs. Henry Blades; one sister, Mrs. Frank Cranick; one brother, Sam W. Blades; two nephews, J.C. and Howard Blades; one niece, Frances Cranick, all of Cass City, and other relatives and a host of friends who will always remember her as a good friend, a kind neighbor, and a loving mother. She was preceded in death by her father, July 15, 1931.

      Burial will be in the Elkland cemetery following the funeral service which will be held at the home today (Friday) at two o'clock. Rev. Bayless will officiate.
