At Norway, Mich., Wednesday, Feb. 5, 1902, Mary, aged 43 years, 7 months and 14 days, wife of Rev. R.L. Hewson, pastor of the M.E. church.
Again we are called to chronicle the breaking of an erstwhile happy family circle and to note the loss from earth of the purest link it, the golden family chain. Mrs. Hewson was born in Leicestershire, Eng., and became the wife of Mr. Hewson at Derby, Eng., more than 25 years ago. the family has lived in this city something better than 4 years or during Mr. Hewson's pastorate here. She was the mother of five children, three of whom (two sons and one daughter) together with the stricken husband survive her. A woman of tenderest nature, sound judgment, homemaking tendencies and a devout Christian, she did her full duty in the world and her summons "come up higher" was answered without tear or trembling. For sometime it had been known to her physicians and friends that Mrs. Hewson was suffering from that relentless disease tuberculosis; but recent conditions had been such that it was hoped that her life might be spared for years, but it was not so decreed and after a brave fight and complete resignation when conviction came she said "good-bye" to her loved ones and fell asleep. The remains will be buried at Quinnesec, this afternoon after services at the home.(The Current Newspaper, Saturday, February 8, 1902, No 2, Norway, Dickinson, Michigan)
