(The Fisherman's Advocate, September 14, 1934, page 6)
MRS. ELIOL RUSSELL
The death occurred here on Monday of this week, of Bessie, beloved wife of Eliol Russell, in the 23rd year of her age. The deceased was, for some considerable time, a sufferer from that dread scourge tuberculosis of the lungs, and her passing was not unexpected. She bore her sufferings with patient resignation and was quite happy to be relieved when the final summons came.
The late Mrs. Russell, whose maiden name was Bessie Harnum, was the daughter of Noah and the late Mrs. Harnum of Winterton, T.B., her mother having predeceased her some years ago. Left to mourn her passing are her husband, residing here, father and stepmother (at Winterton, T.B.,) and an uncle, Mr. Robert Harnum, of this place; four sisters Daisy, Mrs Frank Duffett (East Point, Catalina), Jessie, Mrs. George Smart (Port Union), Mary (St. John's) and Goldie, Mrs. Piercey (Winterton). She left two stepchildren Hilda and Hartley and one child of her own, Vernon, an infant boy not quite two years old.
The deceased was a faithful adherent of the Salvation Army and interment took place at the S.A. cemetery, Catalina, on Wednesday afternoon.
To the father, husband and other relatives the Advocate extends deepest sympathy in their bereavement.
