Edna Awalt 1913 Bridgewater Bulletin
The death occurred at Hemford on Friday, March 28, of Edna, beloved wife of H.W. Awalt, once a prosperous merchant of this place, aged 45 years, 2 months, and 26 days. Deceased had been suffering with goitre for upwards of three years, but the immediate cause of her death was paralysis of the throat. She was only confined to her room for three months, and her friends, realizing that no earthly help could avail, were not surprised to hear that at noon she had been summoned Home. Everything that medical skill and kindly care could do was done for the sufferer, but she grew weaker day by day, and was quite mindful of the change awaiting her, and spoke of it quite freely and cheerfully. To her, death held no terrors. She was a member of the Baptist Church, but expressed a wish that the Rev. Geo. W. Ball, pastor of the Congregational Church here, who had visited her frequently, should officiate at her burial. Her remains were taken to the church where the Rev. Ball preached an impressible sermon from Revelation 23:1," There shall be no sea." From thence to the cemetery near her home she was tenderly laid to rest to await the glorious Resurrection morn. She leaves to mourn their loss a husband and one son, David, carrying on a business in Cherryfield; and four daughters at home, Hazel, Hilda, Jewel and Althea; and one daughter, Florence at Normal School; also four brothers and one sister at Baker's Settlement, besides an aged mother who tenderly cared for her during her last illness. The floral tributes were beautiful, testifying the esteem in which the departed was held.
With thanks to Rosemary Rafuse.
