Bow Island Old Timer Passes
Bow Island - The death of Mrs. Grace I. Gragg at her home on Sunday evening, December 15th, marks the passing of a highly respected old timer of the Bow Island district.
Mrs. Gragg was born in Adams County, Wisconsin, in 1858, and would have been 89 years old on February 22nd.
She and her husband moved to this district and settled on a homestead southeast of Bow Island in 1908 and she had been continuously in residence there since. One daughter, Mrs. N. Ancion, predeceased her some years ago, also her husband in 1923.
She leaves to mourn a daughter, Mrs. Mabel Westlind of Ladner, B.C., a son Harry with whom she had made her home since the death of her husband; two sisters, Mrs. Rachel Anderson and Mrs. Nellie Graves, both of Washington; a brother, Andrew Walker of Plainfield, Wis., and nine grandchildren, as well as a host of dear friends and acquaintances which she had made throughout the years.
Mr. and Mrs. Gragg were among the very first to settle in the district and she had watched it grow through good times and bad.
Mrs. Gragg had been ailing for some time but had maintained a cheerful and pleasant manner throughout. She returned two weeks ago from the Medicine Hat hospital where she had been receiving treatment.
Funeral services will be held from Pattison's Funeral Home in Medicine Hat on Wednesday at two o'clock, Rev. R. G. Wood officiating.
