CRABB, Mrs. Richard (Sarah Ryan)
Carleton Sentinel 1922.
The death occurred at he home in Debec, after three days of illness of pneumonia, of Mrs. Richard Crabbe,Sr., in her 89th year. She was a woman of gentle, kind disposition, devoting her life to home and family.The funeral took place on Sunday afternoon from the church of St.Agnes in Debec, followed by a large number of people, to pay their respects to one who had been a life-long resident in their midst. Her life was best described in the words of the text, chosen by Re. C. J. Mclaughlin: "She was greatly renowned among all, because she feared the Lord very much, neither was there anyone that spoke an ill word of her, Judith V111, 8th." Her life he said, from the beginning was a preparation for her last end, and she ever retained that simplicity of faith in God so characteristic of the people of her generation. Devoted to her family, home,and church, she had left to all the example of an ideal wife and mother. Faithful in life, she was faithful unto death. We speak, he said, of heroes and heroines on the battle field, we speak of Judith, Esther and Ruth, but are these not removed from the scenes of the world strife and unknown, presiding over the sanctuary of our Christian homes, mothers whose courage, devotedness and self-sacrifice would equal that of our noblest heroines. The large concourse of friends and relatives following her remains were , he said, the best testimony of a devoted and well spent life.  She is survived by her age husband, six daughters and three sons: Mrs. B. Lenehan, of Houlton; Mrs . F. A.Dugan, of Homesville;  Mrs. Jas. Kelly,of Lakeville; Mrs. James Dennin, of Maxwell; M.T. Crabbe, of St. Stephen; James of Debec;  John of McGill, Nevada., who has been visiting his aged parents, for the past seven months, Thomas and  Elizabeth at home.

"I find it sad that even in their own obituary, the women were not named by their own name and certainly no mention of a maiden name.
Then in the TWEEDIE one, the funeral director is named but not the children or wife.
There should be a course on obituary writing."
