      Mrs. Robert Campbell Spend a Life-Time of Over 82 Years Near Ayr


      Blenheim has lost one of the oldest and most highly respected residents in the person of Mr. Robert Campbell, who passed away on Friday, Oct. 13th, after a short illness form pneumonia, in her 83rd year. The deceased, whose maiden name was Margaret Easton, was born in North Dumfries and had lived in this district all her life, witnessing the development of the countryside form the condition of a primeval forest to one of the finest agricultural districts in Ontario.

      After her marriage with Mr. Campbell she resided on the Campbell homestead, lot 2, con. 12, Blenheim, now occupied by her son George, and were she died 22 years after the death of her husband. The fruits of the union were eleven children, nine of whom survive her. These are William, Blenheim; Mrs. R. Forbes, Saskatoon, Sask,; James, Blenheim; Mrs. R.W. Bass, Blenheim; John, Blenheim; Mrs. Donald Gunn, Drumbo; Robert and George on the homestead; Mrs. Wm. Rutherford, Waterloo Township. The two who predeceased her are Gordon and Bella.

      Mrs. Campbell was a Presbyterian, and in her church going days was a member of the Stanley Street Congregation. She was ever deeply interested in all good works, and an energetic advocate of moral reform. In sickness she was "a mother in Israel" and thus endeared herself to a wide circle of friends and neighbors - in short she was all a woman should be, a faithful wife, a good mother and a friend in need. The funeral on Monday to the Ayr cemetery was largely attended, Rev. J.J. Brown conducting the service.
