      Death of Mrs. D. D. Wilson, of Seaforth

      We take the following from the Seaforth Expositor of last week: - We last week noticed the illness of Mrs. D. D. Wilson of this town. We then little anticipated that it would this week be our painful duty to chronicle her death. Such, however, is the case. On Saturday the sad intelligence was announced that she had passed away about eight o'clock that morning. Mrs. Wilson was the eldest daughter of Thos. Richardson, Esq., of North Dumfries, Waterloo county, and was a native Canadian. She was 49 years of age. Mr. Wilson has now been a resident and leading business man of this town for about twenty years, and hence the deceased was among the pioneer settlers, and here we may say, she had spent the best years of her life, and they were not spent in vain. Few, if any, enjoyed more fully and love and esteem of every person, and of all classes, by whom she was known. In her quiet, kind, unostentatious way she was always a leader in every charitable and Christian movement, and there are very many, especially among the poor of the town, who will sadly miss not only her cheerful smile and encouraging word, but more substantial aid which was always liberally bestowed where it was most needed and deserved. But while she will be missed, and sadly missed in this way, her loss will be most keenly felt in the church with which she has been connected almost since its formation, and in the home circle. In the former she was a leader and wise counsellor, while in the latter she was the beloved and living mother, and affectionate, thoughtful wife. In fact, in every relation of life, she acted the part of a true Christian woman, and she well merited the high esteem and affection in which she was cherished by all. The funeral took place on Monday afternoon, and was one of the largest ever seen in these parts. Indeed the attendance on this occasion abundantly manifested not only the esteem in which the deceased was held, but also the sincere sympathy felt for the bereaved husband and family on account of their irreparable loss.
