    • OBITUARY JANE ADELAIDE SHOREY

      SHOREY - At Toronto on Saturday, July 11th, 1936, Jane Adelaide Shorey, widow of the late George Shorey aged 79 years. Resident of District For Many Years Died in Toronto THE LATE MRS. GEO. SHOREY The funeral of the late Mrs. Geo. Shorey, who died at the home of her son, Dr. Kenneth Shorey, 68 Glencairn Avenue, Toronto, on Friday night, was held at the home of her cousin, Mr. S. C. S. McKim, in Napanee, on Monday afternoon. Rev. Harold E. Wellwood, minister of Trinity United Church, was in charge of the service, and interment followed at Riverside Cemetery, in the McKim plot. Mrs. Shorey was a member of one of the oldest and best known families of this district. She was formerly Jane Adelaide McKim and was a daughter of the late Nelson McKim and Harriet Shibley, and was born at Switzerville, seventy-nine years ago. After her marriage to Mr. Shorey, she lived at Shorey homestead on the Palace Road, about four miles from Napanee. About ten years ago, with Mr. Shorey, she went to live with their son, Dr. Kenneth Shorey at Glencoe, after retiring from active farming. Two years later Dr. Shorey removed to Toronto where the home has since been made. Although Mrs. Shorey had been in ill-health for the past four years, her death came unexpectedly. The day of her death was also the day of her 79th birthday. During the evening the event was marked by a family dinner party, which Mrs. Shorey attended. After retiring to her room later in the evening, she was taken suddenly ill and passed away in fifteen minutes. During her life near Napanee, Mrs. Shorey was a member of Trinity Church, where Mr. Shorey was also a member of the Official Board. Together they gave long and valued service to the church. Mrs. Shorey was active in the W.M.S. and Ladies’ Aid and in addition was a charter member of the W.M.S. at Switzerville Church. Since her residence in Toronto, she was a member of St. George’s Church, where she continued to serve in many practical ways. The death of her husband occurred six years ago, and she is survived by one son, Dr. Kenneth; two sisters, Mrs. George Rose, in Melita, Man., and Mrs. Frank Boyes in California, and one brother, Palmer McKim in Vancouver. She was predeceased by one sister and two brothers, Nelson and Anson, founders of the McKim Advertising Agency in Montreal. The pall-bearers at the funeral were Messrs. F.L. Hooper, F.B. Carscallen, W.D. Pennell, C.C. Bell, F.H. Perry, and John Wilson. Napanee Beaver July 15 1936
