Sundays Obituary -- Meyrick

This is the obituary for my 3x-Great Grandmother Margaret Meyrick, Which appeared in the Boston newspaper in 1918.

It read

Meyrick--In Roslindale, Feb 19. Margaret , Widow of John Meyrick.  Service from residece of her daugter, Mrs. Emily Bolton 335 Poplar St., Thursday 2.  Relatives and friends invited.

What this obituary does not say is that she was the daughter of William and Elizabeth Lloyd or that she was the grandmother to five granddaughters or the older sister to four younger siblings!

Margaret died on 19 Feb 1918 following complications from a hernia surgery.
