Spaniard's Bay -
Mrs. Sarah Barrett
, wife of William T. Barrett, passed peacefully away at her home in Spaniard's Bay in the early hours of Wednesday, December 20th. Her passing came unexpectedly to her relatives and friends, and although she had been ill in bed for about five weeks, not even those closest to her realized that the end was so near.
Mrs. Barrett was indeed a loving wife, and she was as good a mother as this world could afford. Her chief sphere of activity was in the home where she excelled, and her hospitality was known by many.
She had just reached her biblical life span of three score and ten; and her life was richly blessed in many ways. She lived to see all her children grown, married and settled, a blessing for which she had forever asked and a hope which was realized. She has indeed finished the work which she had been given to do, and now we can only pray that she heard the welcome Voice say "Well done, good and faithful servant."
Mourning the sad loss of a cherished wife is her husband, and of a devoted mother, two sons, William at Spaniard's Bay, and Walter at Corner Brook; four daughters, Emily (Mrs. Edward Bennett), Lance Cove, Bell Island, Lydia (Mrs. Norman Gosse), at Toronto, Joyce (Mrs. Albert E. Smith) of Corner Brook, and Jean (Mrs. Byron Froude) of Toronto. Surviving also are three brothers, William Smith at Clarke's Beach, Moses Smith at Spaniard's Bay, and John Smith of Brooklyn, New York; three sisters, Mrs. Isaac Bradbury of Coley's Point, Mrs. Walter Crane of Spaniard's Bay, and Mrs. Samuel Blandford of Brooklyn, New York, also seventeen grandchildren.
The funeral, in charge of undertaker Walter Baggs, was held on Thursday afternoon. The Reverend J. B. Reynolds conducted the burial service at the Church immediately after having family prayers at the home. Burial was in the family plot in the United Church Cemetery. In offering heartfelt sympathy to those who mourn we quote from one of the favourite hymns of the departed and one, which was sung at her funeral:
"All the way my Saviour leads me;
Oh, the fullness of his love!
Perfect rest to me is promised
In my father's house above.
When my spirit, clothed, immortal,
Wings its flight to realms of day,
This my song through endless ages -
Jesus led me all the way!
