Sudden indeed was the call which came to Jessie C. McKinnon, the devoted wife of John M. Warren, 642 Christie Street, Toronto, formerly of Acton last Thursday. For some years Mrs. Warren had been troubled with an ailment of the heart and this finally resulted in her passing away, at the age of thirty-six years. The sudden news brought consternation to friends here and many expressions of sympathy have been extended to Mr. Warren and to his dear motherless little ones: Helen McGregor in her third year, and John Cameron McKinnon, who is just 18 months. The funeral was held here on Saturday afternoon. A brief service was held at the home of Mr. James L. Warren, at which tender and sympathetic words were spoken by Rev. John MacNeill, of Walmer Road Baptist Church, Toronto, who was assisted by Rev. H. W. Avison, M.A., B.D. The remains were borne to the family plot in Fairview Cemetery by C. C. Henderson, N. F. Lindsay, A. T. Brown, John R. Kennedy, Chester Plank and H. P. Moore, J.P.
Mrs. Warren was the third eldest of the four sons and four daughters of Rev. and Mrs. Neil McKinnon, of Glencoe. The father died there in 1888 and Mrs. McKinnon has ever since resided there. This is the first death in the family since the father passed away. The other memebrs of the family are: John Donald, at Regina, Sask., Willis, at Boston, Mass., Hector in New York City; Archibald, wireless operator for H. M. Transport Egori, from Montreal overseas; Mary Cameron, teacher of music at Pickering College, Newmarket; Elis S. on the teachiong staff of Port Arthur Schools; Alice, wife of Dr. E. W. Meredith, of Pittsburg, Pa. Mrs. Warren was a member of the teaching staff of Acton Public and High Schools for several years, coming here in 1904. She was an excellent teacher, and was highly esteemed for her many gifts and graces. She left Acton to accept the Principalship of Thessalon High School and in a year or so accepted the position of General Secretary of the Young Women's Christian Guild, Toronto, which she held with much acceptance until her marriage on August 30th, 1911.
