St. John, N.B., Monday, June 17th, 1878:
THE LATE MRS. HARTIN
We learn that Mrs. Hartin, the beloved wife of the Rev. Thos. Hartin, Rector of Canterbury, died at Canterbury Station on the 9inst., after an illness which she bore with Christian resignation. The deceased lady was in the forty-first year of her age, leaving a sorrowing husband, six sons, two daughters, a widowed mother, and a large circle of relatives and friends to mourn their loss; but they mourn not as those without hope, for she died trusting in Jesus. She was an affectionate wife and tender mother, a loving daughter, and kind neighbor; she had gained the respect and affection of the community in which she lived, all with whom she was acquainted will miss her, more especially her family and those of her neighbors. She has left a world of sorrow, sin and death, and gone to be with Jesus, "which is far better," where there is no sin or sorrow, where pain nor death can ever enter, and where the inhabitants shall not say we are sick. On the sad occasion the obsequies were conducted in an impressive manner by the Rev. Thos. Neales, Rector of Woodstock, who preached an impressive sermon, the Parish Church being crowded to overflowing. Many were not able to get in. The remains of the deceased lady were followed to the grave by a large concourse of sympathizing friends; who came from different parts of the parish to pay their tribute of regard to the memory of the departed.- Communicated.
