Notes for Sophie F. Hurteau: Obituary:

Courier & Freeman, Parishville, May 15, 1940 — The funeral services for Mrs. Sophia Huteau Peet whose demise on May 3rd was mentioned in this column last week was held from the Peet home Monday afternoon, May 6th at 2:30 o'clock. Rev. Monmouth H. Horton, pastor of the Baptist church at Potsdam, officiated and interment was made in the family plot at Hillcrest cemetery. The bearers were Ernest Bruce of Moira, Royal Hunt, Guy Delong. Fav Duffy, Ray Collins and Leonard Bisnett. The great profusion of floral offerings were magnificent and silently bespoke the great esteem in which the deceased was held. Among the friends from out of town who attended the rites were Frank Harteau of Burke, Mr.and Mrs. Frank Harteau of Alburg,Vt., Mrs. Joseph Hurteau of Constable, Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Stuart and daughter, Miss Beulah of Colton, Miss Blanche B. Beery, Mrs. Bertha Sanford, Mrs. Lewis Dewey, Mrs. Minnie Robson and Miss Ethel Jesmer of Potsdam, Mrs. Emmett O'Brien and Miss Mary O'Leary of Canton, Mr. And Mrs. Oliver Durochcr of Dundee, Quebec, Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Bruce of Moira, Miss June Jarvis of Winthrop and Ross Carroll of Syracuse. Mrs. Peet was born May 6, 1859, the daughter of John and Florence Hureau in Malone. On October 25, 1880, she was united in marriage with Lewis Peet at Fort Covington. They made their home in this village and for many years Mr. Peet was an employee of the Simeon L. Clark and Son Lumber Company. To them were born four children, Pliny, now of Syracuse, Clark, who is principal of Lasalle street high school at Niagara Falls, Cressy, Mrs. Alvin Henderson of Oswego and Irma, a teacher in one of the Niagara Falls schools. Miss Irma was confined in a hospital quite seriously ill at this time and great sympathy is felt for her by her hosts of friends that she could not be with her family here. Mrs. Peet is also survived by two grandchildren, Miss Vivian Peet and Clayton Peet both of Syracuse, one sister, Mrs. Frank Struthers of South Hadley, Mass., and two brothers, Frank Hurteau of Burke and Stephen Hareau of Cazaville, Canada. She was a very faithful member of the local Baptist church and of Parish Chapter, No. 91 O.E.S. We note that the day of her burial would have been her 81st birthday. The Peet family is one of our most highly respected ones and their devotion to each other is noteworthy. For many years since the death of Mr. Peet, Mrs. Peet has spent the winter months with her daughter, Mrs. Henderson, and the summers at her home here with Miss Irma and Mr. and Mrs. Clark Peet.
