Mrs. M. Chaffey Dies At Son's Home In New York, Age 95
Born At Pennfield, She Had Lived Over Three Score Years At Indian Island Where She Was Buried on Saturday
A LONG LIFE FULL OF GOOD DEEDS

    Indian Island, March 18 - Throughout Charlotte County and in other places in New Brunswick, and also in the United States numerous friends of Mrs. Margaret E. Chaffey, who for sixty-five years was a resident of Indian Island, N.B., will be grieved to learn of her death which occurred at the home of her son, William H. Chaffey, Of New New York, with whom she had made her home during the last four and one-half years. Mrs. Chaffey had reached the grand old age of ninety-five years, and until recently had maintained her faculties to a remarkable degree. She had been failing quite rapidly the last six months prior to her demise, but had written a letter to a friend on Indian Island only two weeks before her death.
    Mrs. Chaffey, whose maiden name was Miss Margaret E. Justason, was the daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Isaac Justason of Pennfield, Charlotte County, N.B., and was born there February 23, 1845. She received  her primary education in the Pennfield school and later was graduated from the Provincial Normal School when that institution of learning was located in the city of Saint John. She taught school in various places in the county and came to Indian Island to teach in 1870. Here she met and married Howard D. Chaffey, a descendant of James Chaffey, pioneer settler of Indian Island, and of the Passamaquoddy Bay region. She taught school here after her marriage on several occasions, and in later years was postmistress here for a long time. She also assisted her husband in his duties as collector of customs at this port-of-call.
    "Aunt Maggie" as she was lovingly referred to by those  who knew her intimately, possessed a truly charitable nature and her deeds of kindness and love which she bestowed unstintedly  upon all, irrespective of class or creed, reflected not only the truly Christian acts which she exemplified in her dealings with others, but also an innate love for good works - the mark of God's own handiworks in the human heart. Never did she turn away anyone who came to her for help or guidance; but she even went further than that. She went forth into the highways and byways of life in search of those might need a word of kindness or more tangible aid. In everything she did the thought of others took full precedence over self, and it can be truthfully said of her she was a "Mother in Israel."
    Mrs. Chaffey was a faithful and devoted member of the Episcopal Church in Pennfield while living there and remained loyal to her church as a communicant after having moved away. Throughout her entire life she religiously practiced the tenets of the Anglican faith. Episcopal clergymen of St. Anne's Parish of which West Isles forms a part of, often held religious services at her home on Indian Island. Among those who came to teach and preach and to administer Holy Communion were the late Archbishop J.A. Richardson of Fredericton and Canon F.W.M. Bacon of Woodstock formerly rector of St. Anne's, Welchpool. In addition to dignitaries of her own church, ministers of other persuasions were made welcome and for a number of years pastors of the United Church held services at Mrs. Chaffey's home during the summer months, to which meetings all residents of the island were called to worship according to their own beliefs.
    Aside from her quiet and dignified religious activities which commanded the respect and interest of all her neighbors, Mrs. Chaffey also took a great interest in the affairs of her country and kept herself well-informed in regard to world affairs as well. She was a great reader, and was known to possess an analytical mind which lost none of its keenness with the passing of the years, until the natural failure of the mental process near the very end of life set in. Through her death the world is made poorer and many will miss her words of counsel and deeds of kindness. To make a slight transportation in the poetic word of Charles Kingsley:
    "She did noble things, not dreamed them, all day long.
    And so made life, death, and that vast forever.
    One grand, sweet song."
    Deceased is survived by a son, William H. Chaffey of New York; a grandson, Hugh Chaffey, of Eastport; and four great-grandchildren. There are a number of nieces and nephews. A son, Cecil Chaffey, of Indian Island, was drowned about fifteen years ago. Mrs. Chaffey's husband predeceased her several years ago. There are many relatives further removed in relationship in Pennfield and in various points in the United States.
    The funeral was held from the Chaffey home at Indian Island Saturday afternoon, the 16th inst., immediately after the remains, accompanied by the son, arrived from New York via Eastport. Rev. Victor M. Regan, rector of St. Anne's Church, Welchpool, conducted the service at the house, and also the committal service at the Indian Island cemetery, where interment took place. The hymn, "Abide With Me," was sung by the rector. The bearers were Roy Dixon, Wesley Hurley, Hubert Chaffey, Chester A. Dixon, Alden Bucknam, and Henry Porter.
    Those who attended the funeral from off the island were William H. Chaffey, New York, Mr. and Mrs. Hugh Chaffey, Mrs. Hattie Chaffey, Mrs. Herbert Chaffey, Alden Bucknam, Herbert Stover, of Eastport; Mr. and Mrs. Henry Porter, Mrs. Rebecca Enos, Victor M. Regan and Mr. and Mrs. Chester A. Dixon of Deer Island.

EASTPORT MAN DROPS DEAD NEAR HOUSE WHERE HE WAS BORN - Reached It By Chance After Boat Had Been Wrecked Near Beaver Harbor.
    "That is the house where I was Born," remarked Franklin S. (Star) Stuart of this city to his companion, Ray Bishop, as the two were making their way toward a road at Pennfield Sunday morning, after their boat had been wrecked near Beaver Harbor. A few moments later, he fell dead, victim of a heart condition to which he had been subject for several years. His companion, failing to revive him, walked some seven miles to the RCAF Airport where he secured help after telephoning to Eastport. Bishop was brought home by car later in the day, an ambulance bringing Mr. Stuart's body.
    The two men had gone to Saint John Saturday to bring back a small motor boat owned by Philip Wentworth. They started late that afternoon and had reached a point somewhere in the vicinity of Beaver Harbor when their motor stopped. The boat was driven ashore and broke up on the rocks. They reached the beach safely and remained there the rest of the night, warming themselves by a fire of driftwood. In the morning, they started through the woods toward the main highway. The traveling was difficult and Stuart, who was wearing rubber boots, presently showed signs of distress but they kept on. They eventually came to the house where he said he was born, and they were the last words he spoke.
    Mr. Stuart was about 52 years of age and had recently been employed by the Mearl Corporation. He is survived by his wife, the former Lena Phinney, and by a son, Roy, and a daughter, Mrs. Hazen Mitchell.
    Funeral services were held this afternoon, Rev. Roland Chaffey of the Methodist Church officiating.
