A lightly edited transcription of a page 1 article in the 10 Sep 1925 issue of the Waterford Star.


On Thursday, 3 Sep 1925 at Vanessa, Ont., Emma, beloved wife of Henry Bartholomew, passed into the "Sweet and Blessed Country."

Those who were intimately associated with her have lost a rare friend. The church in all its departments will miss her kindly counsel and unceasing efforts to help. The community has lost one of its most highly respected citizens and the home a loving wife and mother.

The funeral was held from her late residence Saturday, 5 Sep 1925 and the large gathering of relatives and friends, together with the many beautiful floral tributes, indicated the esteem in which she was held. She leaves a sorrowing husband and daughter Alma, and a wide circle of friends.

The service was conducted by her pastor the Rev. Wm. Waldron and Elder J. B. Moore of Waterford, an intimate friend of the family for many years, who in their addresses paid high tribute to the life of the departed.

Servant of God, well done!
Thy glorious warefare's past;
The battle's fought, the victory's won
And thou art crowned at last.
