“She Hath Done What She Could”
The funeral of the late Mrs. James A. Nuttall was held on Saturday afternoon
from the home of D. M. Goldie, near Crathorne, services being held by the
Rev. J. M. Linn, of Ireton, and was largely attended. A brief service was
held at the house and then the funeral possession proceeded to the Grant
Township Presbyterian Church. The officiating minister preached a fine sad,
effective discourse from the words, “She Hath Done What She Could,” a
favorite quotation of the deceased lady. The church choir sang a number of
beautiful hymns. The Pallbearers were the same as those who helped bear her
husband to the grave a few days previously, M. Brodie, John Robertson, A. G.
Blakeway, Frank Port, Angus Robertson and John Erickson.
Elizabeth McIlree was born in Philadelphia on August 29, 1838, and there she
was reared and educated. When she was twenty one she was united in marriage
with Michael Lynch, of that city. In 1861 she went to California and the
same year her husband died. In 1866, she returned to Philadelphia and the
following year was united in marriage with James A. Nuttall. For nearly
forty years they lived happily together. They leave one daughter, Mrs. D.
M. Goldie, of Crathorne.
For the past two years she had been a great sufferer from dropsy and heart
trouble. She bore her sufferings patiently and seemed perfectly resigned
and anxious to go and be with her Saviour.
The week previous her husband died and after his death she appeared to
realize that her days on earth were few and her little remaining strength
gradually weakened and she passed away peacefully.
Mrs. Nuttall was a kind and loving mother and always ready to lend a helping
hand to any one in need. She was a member of the Methodist Episcopal church
and at one time was active in Sunday school work.
She was possessed of considerable literary attainments and in her earlier
life wrote a number of religious and secular poems and did Newspaper work.
