    • Death of Mrs. Wyllie One of Ayr's Oldest Residents Called to Her Reward

      The death occurred on Tuesday, Oct. 3rd, at 1 am, after an illness of a few weeks, of one of Ayr's oldest and most respected citizens in the person of Mrs. John Wyllie, in her 86th year. Deceased had been stricken with a slight stroke a couple of weeks ago, followed by an attack of pneumonia, and the end was not unexpected.

      Mrs. Wyllie was a lady of many sterling qualities, and was much beloved by a wide circle of friends for her bright and cheerful disposition, and her readiness to assist in time of need.

      Deceased, whose maiden name was Margaret Pringle, was born in Eldon, Roxboroughshire, Scotland, in November, 1836, and came to Ayr with her parents in 1852. In September, 1856, she was united in marriage with the last John Wyllie, who held the position of postmaster here for many years, up to the time of his demise about 15 years ago.

      She was a member of the Presbyterian Church and always took a deep interest in all branches of church work.

      Deceased is survived by one son, Mr. R.P. Wyllie, Oakland, Cal., as well as a number of more distant relatives in Ayr and vicinity. The funeral will take place today, (Thursday), at 3 pm to Ayr Cemetery.
