Hepworth Resident Passed 
  Very suddenly on Monday
HEPWORTH, Dec 20 --- The very sudden death of Mrs. Ernest Cooper on Monday, came as a great shock to the people of this community. Up to the moment of her death she was in her usual health and engaged in her household duties. She was stricken while putting out her weekly washing and was carried into the house by her husband and two neighbors. Dr. F. S. Williamson was called at once but nothing could be done and without regaining consciousness, she passed away a short time later.
   She was born in London, England, in 1894, her maiden name being Vida Heathcote, and came to Canada about eight years ago, becoming the bride of Mr. Cooper shortly after coming here. Besides her sorrowing husband she leaves one daughter, Kathleen, both in Hepworth, her father, two brothers and two sisters in England.
   The funeral will be held from the Church of the Redeemer, Hepworth, on Wednesday, Dec. 21st, at 2:30 p.m. and interment will be made in Zion cemetery.
