Grace Effie Erratt
Grace Erratt of Winchester died suddenly at Winchester District Memorial Hospital on Thurs., July 7, 2016, in her 93rd year.
She was born in Riceville on Sept. 5, 1923 to her parents, Rueben James Scott and Laura Elizabeth Gates.
She worked for Bell Canada in Riceville, and in Ottawa at the E.B. Eddie factory, and for the government. She married Morley Erratt on June 28, 1947, and together they operated the family farm at the Melvin settlement, and they were blessed with three children — Lynda, Judy, and Scott.
