Spaniard's Bay -
Susanna Barrett
- "We bring our years to an end, as it were a tale that is told. The days of our age art three score years and ten; and though some be so strong that they come to four score years, yet is their strength then but labour and sorrow; so soon passeth it away and we are gone."
Mrs. Susanna Barrett, who had reached her fourscore years, passed peacefully away at her residence here on Monday evening, March 26, calmly bringing to end a lifetime spent among family and friends in true Christian and godly living. In her eighty years she knew labour and sorrow, but her unswerving faith in God was evident, not by words, but by the way she lived, brought her through all the changing scenes of life, and she looked forward to her closing hour, not with fear and trembling, but in sure and certain hope of a happier life beyond the grave and a reuniting with loved ones who had gone before.
A widow for almost thirty years, she was lovingly cared by her son Fred and his wife Millicent, and after Fred's sudden passing just over a year ago, here daughter-in-law continued her affectionate ministrations alone.
Surviving her are one son Hugh, at Spaniard's Bay, two daughters, Annie (Mrs. Gordon Jones) at Spaniard's Bay, and Mabel (Mrs. W. Dawe) at Toronto, twelve grandchildren and three great-grandchildren, to whom we offer our sympathy.
Her funeral was held on Wednesday. The service at the parish church of the Holy Redeemer, where she had been a faithful member and a regular communicant, was conducted by the rector, the Rev. E. Willis. Burial was in the family plot.
