The Obituary of Minnie Boyce Briggs

12 December 1851 - 14 December 1890

From the Livonia Gazette, 26 December 1890

Minnie E. Boyce, wife of Ira T. Briggs, died at her home in Richmond, Dec. 14th, at the age of thirty-nine years and two days.

The funeral was held at the house, the Rev. Mr. Day officiating. The sermon was of the best, the text, “Oh, my God, take me not away in the midst of my days” - 102d Psalm, 24th verse.

Mrs. Briggs had been in poor health for a long time, though confined to her bed only four weeks.

She leaves a husband and two sons - Charley, 15 years old, and Percy, twenty months old, also a father and two brothers in Canada. Her father was with her the two last weeks. She was a Christian lady of gentle, quiet manners, and of a kind and loving heart, always ready to lend a helping hand to those in affliction, and her loss will be felt and mourned by her acquaintances - a devoted wife and mother, who found her chief delight in her home, and the companionship of her little family. The blow falls with a crushing weight on the husband, whose untiring care was so constantly given all through her illness, and the sympathies of all will be given this bereaved family.
