Description : After a lengthy and painful illness, James Loblaw (Jimmie) Hipwell, 10 years old, and elder son of Mr. C. (Ted) and Dorothy Hipwell, died February 11 at his parents' home, Bond Head. Jimmy was a very alert and talented youngster, a pupil at the Bond Head school, and his early passing is most sad and distressing. The sympathy of the whole community goes out to his sorrowing parents and little brother, Reggie. That sympathy was shown by the large attendance at the funeral service held at Emmanuel United Church, Bond Head, at 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday afternoon last, and by the great number of floral tributes received at his home. The service was in charge of Rev. E.A. McIlwain, assisted by Rev. C.R.P. Hearn. A solo was rendered by Jimmy Thompson, Its's Good-Night Here but Good-Morning Up There." Pallbearers were Walter Reynolds Wallace Reynolds Verle Stewart Jimmy Thompson Billy Breedon and Alan McLean. Some of Jimmy's many school chums and playmates were flower-bearers: Joe Foran Gordon Brown Joe Breedon Billy Bateman Douglas Reynolds John Broderick Norman Harvey Teddy Hipwell Donny Whiteside David Bateman Dick Foran Joan Cerswell Anne Cerswell Anne Breedon Marion Sutherland Gwen Geddes Mildred Reynolds Margaret Sutherland Lynn Hipwell Dianne Hipwell. The interment took place in the Hipwell plot at the Bond Head Cemetery."
