    • Demise of Mrs. And. McRae

      Her Life Devoted to Moral and Religious Influence In the Home

      the people who were prominent in the social, political and religious activities of this community half a century ago are rapidly passing away, and in a few short years the scene of their life's work will know them no more - possibly not even in memory. Nevertheless, the individual whose life was characterized by good deeds and an exemplary life? will leave an influence the value of which in leavening the moral and religious atmosphere of the community may be incalculable.

      Such a person was the late Mrs. And. McRae, who passed away last Sabbath, April 16th, in the home of her son at Glenmorris in her 75th year. Her maiden name was Isabella Robson, and her birthplace Ayr. Fifty years ago she married the late Andrew McRae and lived in South Dumfries up to about a year ago, her husband dying 25 yrs. ago today, April 20. The family consists of Murdo McRae, South Dumfries, Rev. J. McRae in China, Alex McRae on the homestead, S. D., Rev. And. McRae, Glenmorris, Mrs. Sheldon Stockton, S. D., and Annie of Glenmorris. One brother, Michael Robson, resides at Vancouver, B.C.

      The deceased led a very quiet, unostentatious life, but was active in good works. It is not given to many mothers to have two sons in the ministry, a circumstance which in itself is an evidence of the deep spiritual training that dominated the home life. And in the years to come there are those who will rise up and ? her blessed.

      The funeral took place Tuesday, when interment was made in the Ayr Cemetery, with Rev. J. J. Brown in charge of the service, and the pallbearers being Messrs. Murdo Lillco, And. Hall (Blenheim), Douglas Lillico, Morton Robson, Murdo Robson and Walter Pobson (Galt).
