passed away last Monday in the person of Alexandra Lake. Wife
of Mr. A. R. Cooper, for many years office manager of the local
branch of the Canadian Canners. The late Mrs. Cooper was born
in Stoke-On-Trent, England and she spent part of her life in that
country. She was married to Mr. Cooper fourty-seven years
ago and twelve years later she moved to Canada.

years ago. Mr. Cooper being employed by the Canadian Canners.

friends, who will miss her willingness and faithfulness in church
activities. Mrs. Cooper has enjoyed good health until a year
ago when she began to fail. She is survived by her husband, one
son Cecil of Kitchener. Mrs. Lloyd Chrysler of Clarkson and Mrs.
