About Augusta Louisa Gugy
Lukin Homfray Irving, Augusta's son, writes:
"My mother was a most popular young woman; she was a good equestrian, painted and sang, with an inherited gift of acquiring foreign languages with facility; hospitable and charitable. She successfully reared a family of seven children, dying at 89 Winchester Street, Toronto, on 19th April, 1892. The last entry but two in my father's diary for 1913, his life then ebbing, reads: '19th April, visited the grave in St. James' Cemetery, this day 1892, we laid therein my late wife to whom all reverence and affection is due.'"
