  • Notes 
    • Mrs. Samuel Uttley Died of Heart Failure

      END CAME WHOLLY UNEXPECTEDLY

      The death of Mrs. Samuel Uttley occurred at noon to-day in Doon, of heart failure. She had been ill for several days from an attack of La Grippe but it caused no apprehension to the members of her family. The attending physician noted that her heart's action was somewhat weak, but did not consider the symptoms dangerous. She slept well during the greater part of Monday night. This forenoon there was nothing alarming outwardly in her condition. But at noon she passed peacefully from life unto death.

      The deceased wife and mother was in her 77th year and leaves a husband, three sons and three daughters to mourn her departure. The daughters are Miss Annie of Hamilton; Mrs. Mary Parr, of Connecticut; Miss Edith of Doon. The sons are John J. of Stettler, Alberta, James T. of Doon and W. V. Uttley of Berlin.

      Mrs. Uttley was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James Taylor and was born in Quebec city, shortly after the arrival of her parents from Arbroath, Scotland in 1837. The family afterwards located in Paisley Block, Guelph, where she resided until she reached womanhood and wedded. They took up their residence at Elmira and lived there many years, before removing to Doon.

      She had all the virtues and strength of a good Scotch mother. Industrious to a degree, thrifty and self-sacrificing for her children -- prizing education as a great gift, and ambitious for her offspring. She was a modest, God-fearing woman who made not overly many friends but was true as steel to those she made. Two of her daily admonitions stand out: "Be a good boy" and "Make Spare". The day on which she is to be laid to rest has not yet been decided upon. Probably it will be Thursday.

      GOLDEN WEDDING


      Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Uttley of Doon, celebrated their golden wedding anniversary today, surrounded by their children and descendants and close friends.

      They were wedded in Paisley Block, near Guelph, on Dec. 5, 1862, by Rev. J. Ball, a Presbyterian clergyman of Guelph. Mrs. Uttley's maiden name was Mary Taylor, and she was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James Taylor. She was born at Quebec on November 1st, 1836, shortly after the arrival of her father's family from Scotland. Mr. Uttley was born at Whitacker, Norfolkshire, Eng., on Dec. 23rd, 1837.

      The bridesmaid at the wedding of fifty years ago was Miss Jane Christman of Elmira. The groomsman was Mr. George Tuck, of Clifford. Mrs. Christman attended the golden wedding festivity; Mr. Tuck's health prevented his attendance.

      Mr. and Mrs. Utley resided in Elmira for the first twenty years of their married life. Later they removed to Peel Township for five years, after which they took up their residence in Doon, where they have lived for the past twenty-five years.

      Their union was blessed with eight children, of whom six are living. They are John, of Settler, Alta.; Mrs. Harry Parr, of Pascoag, R.I.; Edith at home; Annie, James and William, of Berlin. Sixteen grandchildren are numbered among her descendants.

      At 3 o'clock today, the Rev. Jos. James of Berlin, read a golden wedding service and wished the participants many further years of health and happiness. The assembled relatives and friends joined in offering congratulations and good wishes.

      The celebrants were made the recipients of numerous gifts to mark the event. - Ex.
