|Text||Mrs. Samuel Reynolds. After an illness of not quite two days duration, the death occurred on Friday October 27, of Sarah Hurst, wife of the late Samuel Reynolds, who passed away at her home, 89 Toronto street, at the age of 84 years. Her death came as a shock to hosts of friends in Barrie and the district where she was widely known. Most of her family were present at her bedside.|
Mrs. Reynolds was born and raised on a farm in Markham but she spent most of her life in this district. Shortly after her parents moved from Markham to Innisfil, near Stroud, she married Samuel Reynolds, whose farm adjoined that of her father and the union between the two was a supremely happy one. On Mar. 4, 1920, they celebrated their diamond wedding anniversary, and were at the time surrounded by a family of 10 - six daughters and four sons. This happy event saddened a year later by the death of Mr. Reynolds on the 5th of December, 1921.
Up till about eight years ago Mrs. Reynolds lived with her husband in Innisfil. They resided at Craigvale for a number of years and Mr. Reynolds carried on a coal business there. When he disposed of this they came to Barrie to spend their declining years.
Mrs. Reynolds was a woman of sterling character, unselfish in her desire to help those who needed her sympathy and care. She was a member of the Central Methodist church at the time of her death. Surviving daughters and sons are Mrs. George Dyer of Holly, Mrs. Henry Pratt of Barrie, Mrs. James E. Simpson of Pittsburg, Mrs Thomas Mullholland of Toronto, and Miss Etna Reynolds at home; William and Jack of Toronto, Herbert of Pittsburg and Albert of London. A brother, Robert Hurst of Toronto, also survives.
The funeral was held on Monday afternoon, October 30, and it took place from her late residence to the Stroud Methodist church and thence to the Stroud Cemetery where the remains were laid to rest. The services were conducted by Rev. E. T. Douglas of Barrie assisted by Rev. Mr. Stevenson of Stroud, and the pallbearers included the following: William Hurst and Bert Pratt of Toronto, Murray Reynolds of Barrie, Russell Webb of Stroud and Morely and Elmer Dyer of Holly.
