Notes for Marie Catherine Chiasson:

Obituary:  Charlottetown Guardian (PEI), Friday, 10 May 1929:  Death of Mrs. Peters - The death occurred in the Prince County Hospital on May 7th of Mrs. Mary Catherine Peters, widow of the late Mr. Bruno Peters of St. Louis.  Her death came as a severe shock to the community, as the deceased was in perfect health up to a week before she entered the hospital, where she was operated on for appendicitis on April 30th, and was doing nicely when pneumonia set in and caused her death.  She was a woman of many sterling qualities and will be much missed in the community where she lived for her charity and kindness.  There are left to mourn the following children - Mrs. J. J. McDonald, Miss Minnie, Willie and Bennit, all of Providence, R. I.; Wilfred of Waltham, Mass.; John and Frank in New York; Mrs. Howard Doucette, of Tignish; Mrs. J. R. Bernard, of St. Louis; Miss Linna of Charlottetown; Fred, Melvin and Harry at home; to all of whom deep sympathy is extended.
