A lightly edited partial transcript of the Lynnville column on page 8 of the 1 Mar 1900 issue 
of the Waterford Star newspaper. See
her father's obituary.


It is our painful duty to chronicle the death of Miss Eda Blayney, which took place at the home of her sister, Mrs. C. Burkholder in Tillsonburg on Wednesday of last week.

The remains were brought home on Thursday and interred in the Lynnville cemetery on Saturday afternoon. The sermon was preached by Rev. R. H. Bell in the Methodist church.

Miss Blayney had been in Tillsonburg for some time, having her lungs treated and her health was steadily improving until neuralgia of the head set in.

Eda will be missed by her friends but she left behind her a direct testimony that she was a child of the King and we know that she has gone home to her Heavenly Father.
