Obituary. [3] Joseph Peets. The local paper of Red Deer, Alberta, Canada, has the following account of the death of Joseph H. Peets, a former resident of Massena. Mr. Peets died October 6. The news of the death of Mr. Joseph H. Petts, of North Red Deer, on Monday came as a great shock to his many friends and acquaintances in city and district. He had not been in any too good health this summer, but it was only last week that he was taken down with bronchial pneumonia, and the disease progressed very rapidly to the end. Mr. Petts was always ready with a cheery word and a kindly act. He had seen many shades of life in the States, being born in New York state and living as far west as the Pacific Coast. He took up land in the Poplar Ridge district thirteen years ago, moved to North Red Deer last year. He had been a member of the L.I.D. Council of his district, and was an energetic and valuable man on road work, being chosen by North Red Deer Council last year to look after that work for them. He was 62 years of age when he died, and he leaves a widow and adopted daughter. Among other relatives is Mrs. Peter Prevo, Sylvan Lake, a sister. The funeral took place from his residence to the Baptist church on Wednesday afternoon, Rev. John Bennett, the pastor, and Rev. W.B. Tait took part in an impressive and helpful service. Mr. Bennett spoke of the kindly manner and sterling character of the deceased. Reeve Kent, Councillor Rich, and Secretary-Treasurer Welton, of the North Red Deer council, were present, with a large gathering of friends, to pay their last respects to the deceased.
