Mrs. Phoebe R. Freeman

Died – at the Wesleyan Parsonage, Lundy Lane, at eight o’clock on Sunday morning on December 2, Mrs. Phoebe R. Freeman, widow of the late Rev. Daniel Freeman and mother-in-law to the Rev. Edwy M. Ryerson, in the seventy-sixth year of her age. Sixty-five years Mrs. F. had been a devoted follower of the Redeemer, in fellowship with the Methodists and her end was peaceful.

Drummondville, December 9, 1849

(We had an opportunity of seeing and conversing with Mrs. Freeman a few days prior to her death. She conversed freely on her dissolution and had strong confidence in God. Her entire dependence was upon the Saviour of sinners. To all our enquiries she gave ready and satisfactory replies; and after two or three interviews with her, we left her to see her face no more in time, but with a “sure and certain hope” of seeing her one day in our Father’s Kingdom.
