REDDY, Mrs. Jeremiah
Daily News   April 26, 1926 (Monday)

Amidst the joys of Easter-tide, April 7th, the Angel of Death called to her eternal reward a worthy and much respected old resident of Fermeuse in the person of Mrs. Jeremiah Reddy. Death was not unexpected as the deceased lady had been visibly failing for some months past, and consequently had the great happiness of being visited and consoled by her son and daughters during her last days. Mrs. Reddy exemplified in her life and death that true, strong Irish faith which shone most clearly in her practical Christian up-bringing of her family and those of the second generation whom came under her care. With her death passes one of those ideal mothers whose virtue and tact form so potent a factor in the making of a happy home and incidentally in the making of a prosperous country. An extraordinary courage emanating from an unwavering confidence in God carried her calmly through the many cares and troubles of life and enabled her to share this precious boon with her otherwise discouraged neighbours. That her sympathetic words and kindy acts were duly appreciated was evidenced by the deep concern and sorrow manifested during her last illness by the many participants of her kindness.
Bright and keen in intellect to the last, frequently strengthened by the sacraments of holy church administered by Rev. C. A. McCarthy, she peacefully breathed forth her soul to her Creator. The funeral which was largely attended, despite the inclement weather, took place from the Sacred Heart Church to Fermeuse Cemetery, where the remains were reverently laid beside her deceased husband. Yesterday requiem mass was chanted in Renews parish church for the happy repose of her soul. To her daughters, Mother M. Rose, St. Patrick's Convent, St. John's, Mrs. Nicholas Walsh, Fermeuse, Mrs. F. Myrick, Cape Race, Mrs. Stephen Battcock, Brigus South, and Mr. Thomas Reddy in the old homestead and her many grandchildren among whom are Sr. M. Aquin and Sr. M. Stephanie, Presentation Convent, Cathedral Square, St. John's, we extend our sincere sympathy, and unite in loving supplication for the speedy entrance into bliss of the dear departed.

There passed away on Tuesday morning, one of our most skilled mechanics and citizens in the person of John J. Reddy. He was well known and respected in this city where he had been a resident for about half a century. He served his apprenticeship with that well known architect Mr. John Mitchill of the Beach, Harbour Grace, who worked ten years in London, England. He entered into partnership with the late Mr. Wm. Harris of this city. On dissolving partnership Mr. Reddy was employed at Mount Cashel, where he held the position of foreman carpenter for over 30 years, in fact up to the hour of his death. Up to two weeks ago while employed on Mount St. Francis, just as he had the work completed on the roof, he was stricken with paralysis and had to take to his bed. All that medical skill could do was done by Doctors Mitchill and Fraser, but John was beyond human skill, and fortified by the Sacraments of the Catholic Church he passed peacefully away to rest. He leaves to mourn three sons - Michael, John and William and one daughter, Mrs. James Lynch of St. John's, also three brothers and one sister, viz: James in Boston, William in Montreal and Bernard in Harbour Grace, and Mrs. Agnes Joy in New York. - Requiescat in peace.
