Description : Although in failing health in recent years, Mrs. Westlake was about as usual last Thursday and early on Thursday evening made a call on a neighbour. Shortly after she returned to her room, in the home of Mr. and Mrs. T. R. Saxon, a sound from the room attracted Mr. Saxon's attention. He called Mrs. Saxon from the garden but Mrs. Westlake passed away within a few minutes. Born near Islington, Mrs. Westlake's maiden name was Annie May Morrison. She grew up there and married Henry J. Westlake, also of that district. The older members of their family were born there. About forty-seven years ago they purchased the farm in the Scotch Settlement, now the home of their son, Robert, and for over thirty years resided there. Sixteen years ago Mr. Westlake died and when their son married, Mrs.Westlake moved to Bradford, occupying rooms in several houses here during the years. Over a year ago she was seriously ill and for a time was at Inniswood Lodge, near Barrie, but returned to her home with Mr. and Mrs. Saxon about a year ago. During her years in the Settlement she was a member of the Scotch Settlement Presbyterian Church and of its W.M.S. and since coming to Bradford her church as been the United Church, where she was a regular attender and among whose church people she made many friends. Mrs. Westlake is survived by three sons and three daughters, namely, Mrs. Frank Hurd (Ethel) of Orangeville; Ernest of Toronto; Mrs. Walter Edney (Lillian) of Bradford; Roy of Brampton; Robert of the Scotch Settlement; and Mrs. Clarence Kneeshaw (Ruth) of Bradford. The funeral was held on Sunday from the Lathangue-Kilkenny Funeral Home, with interment in Mount Pleasant Cemetery, Bradford. Rev. F. G. MacTavish of the United Church conducted the service. The pallbearers were three of her neighbours when she lived in the Scotch Settlement, namely, Whitfield Jessop, now of Alliston, Herbert West, and Robert Sinclair, now of Churchill; a grandson, Murray Gould of Niagara Falls; a nephew, Garnet Westlake of Beeton; and Mr. Ray Saxon of Bradford.

Description : One of Bradford's most active and well known women, Dorothy "Dode" Marks died August 17 in York County Hospital in Newmarket. She was 68. Mrs. Marks was born in the home she lived in most of her life the daughter of Walter Reeves, a Bradford police officer for 20 years, and Sadie Saint. She was educated in Bradford attending both Bradford Public School and Bradford High School after which she worked for a short time in the Stein Furniture Factory which stood on the property now occupied by Toby's Restaurant. In 1930 she married Harvey Marks and spent the next few years raising three children Noreen (Hodgson), Beverley (Sanders), and Bill. She also had seven grandchildren and one great-grandson. An active woman Mrs. Marks was a member of the Women's Institute and also enjoyed bowling tennis badminton and baseball. She worked off and on for The Witness for 25 years often working well into the night organizing subscriptions. A tireless worker she was never heard to complain according to co-workers. Mrs. Marks was a member of the community centre board from its inception in 1956 until 1974 running for no wage the concession booth. According to former board member and co-worker Joe Magani, "Dode and Ted Dow ran that thing all year and the only compensation they got was a steak dinner once a year. For almost 20 years they kept that arena out of the red and that's a fact. Our expenses for running the arena were paid by the proceeds of that booth." A descendant of Bradford's pioneer families Mrs. Marks had a thorough knowledge of the history of the area and provided The Witness with many of the historical photos used in the Yesterdays column. Many of those same photos were used in the Bradford Centennial Book of 1957. Funeral service was held Saturday August 19 in the chapel Lathangue & Skwarchuk Funeral Home. Pallbearers were James Church, Jack Church, Gordon Church, Robert Watson, Kenneth Saint, and Bill Enwright. Burial took place at Mount Pleasant Cemetery.
