      Ethel Jamieson

      TORONTO, Ont. Mrs. R J. Jamieson (nee Ethel Bingeman), whose long life of service in the Pentecostal Assemblies has touched many lives, went to her eternal reward October 4, 1975. Mrs. Jamieson was born in Kitchener, Ont., in 1888 and at 27, in Winnipeg, Man., a trained nurse and teacher, she turned her thoughts to missions. She went to Liberia, West Africa, in 1915 and served there 18 years - years that were true pioneer days, in a most difficult climate where many laid down their lives early in their careers. Then as Ethel Bingeman, she trekked to interior forest areas and helped to establish mission work.

      In one of her early years in Liberia, Miss Bingeman wrote: "Recollections this year are of the visits to town to those sick and dying, and to hear of their faith in God before they pass over the River. They ceased to think of the many who dance or wail for them, rum to be drunk, and bullocks killed, but their thoughts were of the King their eyes would behold. Sometimes sowing in tears, our heart is satisfied in the thought of reaping by and by for the glory of our God."

      In 1933 invalided home from the exacting physical conditions where she worked, the missionary turned teacher in Bible school work in Winnipeg for several years.
      In 1944, Ethel Bingeman was appointed as the first national director of the newly established Women's Missionary Council. She served in this capacity for 12 years, preparing the important routes for the far reaching missions-slanted ministry of Pentecostal women. Her own life was "service" with great dedication and faithfulness throughout, and part of it was giving strong W.M.C. leadership.

      Retiring as W.M.C. director in 1956, Ethel Bingeman married the elderly Robert J. Jamieson, retired West Indies missionary and they lived in the Islands for five years until Mr. Jamieson's death in 1961. Mrs. Jamieson then cared for an older sister in Rochester, N.Y., but had lived in Shepherd Lodge, Toronto, the past six years and had recently travelled to see two sisters in B.C. who survive her. The funeral service was attended by many W.M.C., Missionary and church friends, as well as relatives which included her niece, Mrs. Betsy Carr, and Mr. and Mrs. W. T. Harper, relatives of Mr. Jamieson. The funeral was conducted by Rev. Paul Sorensen of Danforth Gospel Temple. Rev. C. W. Lynn, Rev. James Skinner and Rev. George Lend participated.
