DEAR SIR - Please permit me space in your paper to record the death of my dear sister, Mrs. Loyal Russell, who entered into the haven of rest on August 26th, 1931. Louie had not been in good health for several years. She left Port Union in May, 1929, to join her husband in Elizabeth, N.Y. Since then her health gradually failed, and she left the U.S.A. on August 13th for her home, at Winterton, and on August 26th the angel of death had called for her.
The funeral service was conducted at Winterton by the Corps officer, Capt. Thorne. Left to mourn are her husband and two children. Hilda age 6 and Hartley one year old in Elizabeth; father and two sisters, Mrs. Pearcie and Mary at Winterton; Bessie at Elizabeth, N. J.; Mrs. George Smart at Port Union and Mrs. Frank Duffett at Catalina. On the Sunday of August 30th, the members of the L.O.B.A., Catalina, attended a memorial service in the S. A. Citadel, Catalina, for their departed sister. The service was conducted by Capt. Rideout, the corps officer, who took his text from Job 16 chap. 22 v. "When a few years are come then I shall go the way whence I shall not return". Ruth 2 chap. 17 and 18 v., "So she gleaned in the field until even and beat out what she had gleaned and took it up and went into the city".
Gone from a land of grief and pain, To a home that is bright and fair; And we hope some day to meet again; When our life's work is ended here.
Inserted by her sister,
-MRS. FRANK DUFFETT
