From the Creston Review of August 1, 1913 page 1, via UBC historical newspapers website:

JACOB SMITH Early Wednesday morning word was brought to Frank Smith and his sisters that their father, who was at the hospital in Cranbrook, had passed away at midnight.

He had been ailing for some time and only recently had gone to the hospital at Cranbrook for treatment for heart trouble, the children, who are all grown up, taking up the work of carrying on the baking business in which he has been engaged since he came to Creston, some three years ago. A sad feature of this affair is that Mrs. Smith was away with their married daughter in the State of Washington and was not able to get to her husband's bedside at the time of his death.

She was notified by wire and stopped off at Cranbrook in time to come with the other members of the family who had gone to bring back the remains for burial. Yesterday afternoon's train brought the funeral party and they were met at the station by the members of L. O. I. No. 2005, who took charge of the funeral arrangements, Jacob Smith being an Orangeman, although not a member of the local lodge.

From the station the party wound it way to the Presbyterian Church, where Rev. W. G. Blake conducted the service and from the church the procession led to the cemetery, six of the Orangemen acting as pall bearers and showing all honors to their deceased brother. the service at the grave was in charge of Rev. Fred. L. Carpenter, acting chaplain of the order. There were numerous floral tributes.

Note: L. O. I.=Loyal Orange Institution.
