Notes for Marie Emma Cormier:

Obituary:  Charlottetown Guardian (PEI), Friday, 5 January 1943:  Mrs. Moses H. Peters - A deep bloom was cast over this vicinity when the death of Emma Cormier, dearly beloved wife of Moses H. Peters and daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Cormier of Egmont Bay, took place at the Charlottetown Hospital Jan. 2 at the early age of 36 years.  Mrs. Peters had been ill for the past year, but bore her sufferings which were at times very severe, with characteristic patience and cheerfulness.  But death came peacefully with all the rites of the Roman Catholic church.  Mrs. Peters was a loving wife and fond mother and she had a great number of warm friends.  She leaves to mourn besides her sorrowing husband, five children, also five brothers and three sisters.  The funeral took place from her late residence in Gaytown Jan. 4th to St. Dunstan's Cathedral where Requiem High Mass was sung.  There was a large attendance, testifying to the high esteem in which the deceased was held.  Rev. Father Rooney officiated at the church and Rev. Father St. John at the grave.  The pallbearers were Messrs. Cyrus Vessey, Geo. J. Vessey, Alexander Vessey, Capt. Wm. Burke, Thomas White and Joseph Peters.  There were many handsome floral tributes, also many spiritual bouquets.
