  • Notes 
    • DANIELS.-At Berlin, Ontario, Canada, March 13, 1910, Ella Graves, wife of the Rev. Eugene D. Daniels, aged sixty-two years. Mrs. Daniels was born in Methuen, now a part of Lawrence, Mass., in 1847. Her education was complete, having had the advantage of some of the best schools in her native state. She was married at an early age, and enjoyed a happy married life of thirty-nine years. She was the mother of seven children, five daughters and two sons, two of whom died in infancy. She was brought up in the Christian Church, but after her marriage united with the Methodist Church of which her husband was then a pastor. Later she came with him heartily and intelligently into the New Church. She was a woman of strong religious instincts and deep experience, and as such was an "helpmeet" for her husband in the truest and best sense of the term. She was endowed with good judgment and abundant tact, and made herself extremely useful in church work wherever she resided. She was also a tower of strength to her husband, holding up his hands in every endeavor that he put forth, and lending him encouragement and support in developing the best things the church has to offer. Her was bright and cheerful, and her home a happy and well-ordered one. Her personality was agreeable and her manners attractive, so that she commanded the respect and confidence of the community outside of her immediate circle. and was frequently called upon for advice and assistance in matters of general interest. She was very popular in La Porte, where she resided so many years with her husband, and had already won the hearts of the people of Berlin. Their love for her was attested by the wise and willing assistance they rendered her family during her illness, and by the delicate attentions shown the family at her death. Her removal from this scene of her activities seems to our natural eyes an irreparable loss to her husband and family, and to the society and the church at large; but we believe that it will be largely compensated by the new and more interior life that will flow in from the spiritual world. It is a comfort to know that she leaves three daughters to take up and carry on her work and to maintain a home for her husband. We extend to Mr. Daniels and his children the love and sympathy of the whole church in their great affliction. S. S. S.

      New Church Messenger 20 Mar 1910



      "Berlin becomes known through sorrow as through joy, and its generous spirit is kindly mentioned. The following is from the La Porte (Indiana) Argus-Bulletin of last Saturday. - Rev. E. D. Daniels and daughter, Lilian, who came to this city yesterday with the remains of Mrs.-Daniels, returned today to Berlin, Ontario, accompanied by Mr. Schneider, an ex-member of the councilmanic body in that city, and a member of Mr. Daniels' congregation. It was a sad La Porte coming for Mr. Daniels. He found here the sympathy of a legion of friends extended in the most generous measure. It found expression in word and deed and in the bud and flower, in the tears of those who knew Mrs. Daniels but to love her. The sympathy of friends at Berlin was equally generous. The floral offerings were magnificent and the entire community was kin in expression of sympathy to the bereaved husband. The return of. Mr. Daniels to Berlin today was attended by expressions of sympathy, attesting a love which is abiding."

      Berlin Daily Telegraph, Mar 26th 1910


      "A letter published in the La Porte, Indiana, Herald, of March 17, concerning Mrs. E. D. Daniels during her last sickness, contains the following:

      "The people of Berlin are universally kind and sympathetic. The church has offered to relieve her husband from his Sunday and Wednesday evening services, the organizations and individuals of the church, and the Ladies' Monday Club of the community have kept her sick room constantly supplied with an abundance of beautiful cut roses, carnations, daffodils, violets, etc., the people have sent her and the family many kind remembrances such as devices for taking care of the sick and other useful articles; and, seeing that the family were wearing cut, they have insisted on providing a trained nurse, the church council and Ladies Aid vieing with each other to see which would do it first. From the city pastors' club officially, from callers each day, and even from Berlin citizens, there have come expressions of sympathy which are very encouraging, and for which the family are profoundly grateful."3a
