Mrs Eelder was a remarkable
woman in many respects. She
possessed remarkable vitality, as
her long life proved. She was a
consistent Christian for fully- 70
years, a devoted member of the
Baptist Church. She lived about
16 years a girl and maiden, 48
years a wife, and 23 years a widow.
She was nearly blind and very
feeble during the last year of her
life, and for the last three or four
weeks was completely blind and
entirely helpless. Tender hands
and loving hearts minisieredto her
wants, and now she has gone to
meet the Heavenly reward for a
long life well spent. 1
Thereare many here besides her 1
relatives who will ever remem- 1
ber her with love and gratitude. 1
She is at rest—happy in Heaven.
