Late Mrs. Charlotte Chadwick
Mrs. Chadwick, widow of the
late John Chadwick, passed to her reward Monday morning, the 12th
inst., in her 79th year.
The funeral services were
held on Wednesday afternoon at her late home, interment being in St.
John's Cemetery. Her pastor Rev. Mr. Pinnock, officiated, assisted
by Rev. E. R. Fitch, of Waterford.
She was one of a family of
thirteen, six boys and seven girls. Of these only three survive,
Mrs. [sic] John Rusling of Bloomsburg, Mrs. McDermid of
Mrs. Burbridge of Detroit. Only one child survives, John, on the
home place, a daughter having died in early womanhood.
She was a great home-lover,
having remained by the place of her birth almost without a break.
For nearly 15 years she has been almost a helpless cripple from
rheumatism, but she maintained her bright and cheery smile through
all her suffering. The home was ever a place of glad hospitality and
many are the friends who mourn her departure.
Though unable to attend
public worship in her later days, she was an earnest Christian and a
member of the Simcoe Baptist Church for over 50 years. All who
knew her loved her; but, for her, departure has been gain and none
would selfishly sorrow over what is loss to them.
