Death of Mrs. Rickard.
On Thursday last, Mrs. Mary Rickard, an aged and highly esteemed lady of Fallen Timber died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Charlotte Dunn, widow of the late John Dunn, with who she had made here made for many years since the death of her husband. Death was the result of an attack of dysentery which only lasted a few days. Deceased was a noble, upright, Christian woman of sterling worth, possessed of a most gentle, forgiving and amiable disposition, an excellent neighbor and indulgent mother. For many years she had resided in this vicinity where she was never known to speak unkindly of any one or have an enemy. It is said she is in her 93rd year. We cannot give the surviving members of the family but most of them including several sons and daughters, all married are living. One daughter lives in Helena, Montana. Mrs. Dunn, with whom she made her home after the death of her husband, was a devoted daughter sparing no pains in making her aged parent as comfortable as possible, caring for her to the utmost of her ability. The funeral was a very largely attended and was in charge of undertaker McClintock, of Coalport. A beautiful floral wreath and cross adorned the casket. Interment at Leamer's grave-yard, the oldest burying ground in this vicinity, on Sunday at 10 o'clock. We can hardly extend sympathy to bereaved friends, for she had passed the allotted three score and ten years and could not enjoy life any longer, having expressed a desire to depart to be with her Lord who she trusted and served.
