Mrs. Robert Hamilton passed away at her home in the town of Hull January 31st at 10:10 A.M., a stroke being the cause of her departure to the distant shore. Funeral services were held at the Presbyterian church at Abbotsford Saturday afternoon at 3:00 o'clock, Rev. L.C. Smith officiating and interment was made in the Colby cemetery. The pall bearers were Ray Knight, Chesley Cramer, Leslie Dickinson, Samuel Munson, George Dickinson, Jr., and Jess Parkhill. Floral Tributes were in charge of Mrs. Henry Weise, Mrs. Nelson Ouimette, Mrs. George Dickinson, Jr., and Mrs. Chesley Cramer. The deceased was born in the town of Frankfort Dec. 28th, 1879, thus reaching the age of fifty-four years, one month, and three days. She is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. R.H. Dickinson. She attended rural graded school in the town of Frankfort and high school in Colby, graduating with the class of 1898. She taught school in this vacinity until she married Robert Hamilton on Dec. 1, 1900. Mr. Hamilton died Aug. 4th, 1933. She is survived by eight childern, namely: Hugh Hamilton, Mount Carmal, Penn; Mrs. Clarence Fredrick, Chippewa Falls; Mrs. Otto Brehnm, town of Hull; Glen Robert, Rodney, Helen, Niles, at home. Also two borthers and two sisters: G.B. Dickinson, town of Hull; Earl Dickinson, Milwaukee; Mrs. A.L. Cramer, of Yenis, California; Mrs. August Strebe, Abbotsford. The deceased had been confined to her bed as a result of heart trouble and high blood presure for the pase sixteen months but the untiring skill of the conscientious, painstaking physician and the kind care she received were of no avail. While she has gone from the scenes, the conflicts the sorrows and pleasures of life, she will still live in the hearts of those who knew her best. Her retiring nature led her to hide her best qualities from the public gaze, but they were revealed to those who enjoyed her acquaintance, yet it was in her home where her true worth was most conspicuous.
