The 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 Petrolea, and 
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.
