Obituaries of Former Residents

     I just posted the obituary of Lila Mountain Squarebriggs - she was born and lived most of her life on the Centerline Road (east side of the Western Road). 
     This is the first obituary posted in this blog and provides important information about Lila, her birth date, place and who here parents were.
     Obituaries provide valuable information to researchers when putting together a community history or family genealogy and I'd like to include them in this blog.
     Below is a photo of Lila with Sid Vincent taking a rest from planting potatoes sometime in the 1960's.  Photo cf. the Donna Barbour MacPhee photo collection:
