Mrs Isabell Dorr, Formerly of Harvey, Passes Away--Buried at Harvey.

Harvey Station, Sept 19 -- Many friends learned with much regret of the passing of Mrs Isabell Dorr, aged 72 years, of Camden, Maine, a former resident of Harvey Station, on Saturday morning, Sept 17th, after a lingering illness of 3 years.

In the arrival of the body on Sunday accompanied by Mr and Mrs Everett Grieve, Mr and Mrs Lawrence Richards and Mrs Robt Little, was taken to St. James United Church, where they rested until Monday, 2 p.m., when the funeral service was held. Rev. A. MacKay conducted the service, music was furnished by Prof. J. Peterson, assisted by the choir, when hymns by request were sung. Home of the Lord, Face to Face, Wait and Murmur Not, were sung by Misses Elda Robison and Dora Hunter.

The floral tributes were many and beautiful showing the high esteem of the late Mrs Dorr.
The pall bearers were six nephews, Messrs. Cecil Grieve, Oswald Grieve, Charles Grieve, Clarence Little, Howard Robison, Marshall Robison, and interment in the Harvey Cemetery.
Those who survive are two sons, Oscar Grieve, of Calgary, Alberta; Everett Grieve, of Camden; Mrs Lawrence Richards, of Camden; six grandchildren, one sister, Mrs Robt Little, York Mills; four brothers, Andrew Robison of Harvey Station; Robert Robison, Alexander Robison and Kenneth Robison, of Vancouver, BC.

Mrs Dorr was formerly Miss Isabel Robison of Harvey Station, and was twice married, her first husband being R. P. Grieve of Harvey Station. They lived in Harvey until about 26 years ago when they moved toa Cape Jelllison, Maine.

While in Harvey Mrs Dorr was a willing worker and always ready to help those who were in trouble. She was a charter member of the first Ladies Sewing Circle organized 46 years ago, and worked hard to raise the money that helped to build St. James Church. She was a very active church member and worked in all the branches of the church.

After Mr Grieve died 25 years ago, Mrs Dorr moved to Camden, Maine where she had lived every since. While in good health, she was happiest ministering to those around her who were in need.
