Gillis, Sylvester

9 Jul 1918

At St. Martha’s Hospital, Antigonish, on July 9, of pleurisy, Sylvester aged 9 years, beloved son of Mr and Mrs Duncan Gillis, South Side Cape George.  Unusually bright and attractive he was a general favorite with all.  He received the last rites of Holy Church with edifying devotion shortly before he passed away.  On July 10 his remains were tenderly laid to rest in the Parish Cemetery, Lakevale, after a Mass of Requiem.  The sympathy of the community is extended to his bereaved parents.
