OBITUARY

MRS. P.R.N. VERMAAK
From a Correspondent
Dundee, July 4.
With deepest feelings of sorrow the sad duty falls upon me of recording the death of Mrs. P.R.N. VERMAAK, which took place on Wednesday last. The deceased lady contracted an internal disease last August, and, on the advice of her medical adviser at Vryheid, went down to Dr. McKENZIE's Nursing Home in Durban, where an operation was performed, at which the highest medical skill available was present. It was thought then, in fact Dr. McKENZIE expressed himself as being perfectly satisfied, that the last trace of the fell disease had been removed, and its recurrence was not to be feared, and all looked forward to seeing Mrs. VERMAAK's perfect restoration to health and strength again, but dreaded disease again made its appearance early this year, and in April last she was again taken to Durban, and, on her removal to Dr. McKENZIE's Hospital, a second operation was considered necessary, which was carried out under the supervision of the best medical talent in the Colony, but all was of no avail, and, after almost incredible suffering, the final call came, and she succumbed on Wednesday morning last. Through all the long weeks and months of intense pain and suffering the deceased lady maintained a most noble and heroic fortitude. Of a bright and happy nature she was sustained all through by a perfect faith and trust in Heaven and no word of murmuring or complaint passed her lips during her long period of suffering; her religion was her stay and support, and though it was not of the aggressive or loudly professed stamp, yet no one had the blessing of her friendship, as was the writer's privilege, could fail to be benefited by the fragrance of her pure life, which, like a delicate perfume, exhaled from her every action. All that human skill and knowledge could do had been done on her behalf, no shred of possibility, however remote, was neglected, cables were sent to Europe for medical advice and medicines, but all were fruitless, and those who loved her so well can only try to say "Thy will be done."
The funeral took place on Thursday, July 2, from her father's house at Strydfontein, Doornberg, and from all round the district, from Dundee, Vryheid, and Helpmakaar, friends and sympathisers gathered in large number to pay their last tribute of respect to one who was so well beloved, and to extend their sympathies to the bereaved.
The deceased lady was the youngest daughter of the late Mr. HAMBRIDGE, who was one of the early pioneers of the Colony, and is survived by her devoted husband and five young children (daughters, also by her aged mother, brothers and sister, and to all of them, in their overwhelming sorrow the deepest sympathy is extended.

MRS. F.J.R. CAITHNESS
From Our Own Correspondent
Johannesburg, July 5.
The death occurred yesterday morning of Mrs. CAITHNESS, wife of Mr. F.J.R. CAITHNESS, late manager of the Paarl Ophir Gold Mining Co., at her residence, Glen Ohpir, Johannesburg. Mrs. CAITHNESS was a pioneer of the Rand and a member of the WHITEHEAD family, one of the oldest families in the Eastern Province.

OBITUARY

MRS. E.L. ANDERSON
We regret to announce the death, which took place in Grey's Hospital on Wednesday, of Mrs. E.L. ANDERSON, wife of Dr J.G.

The deceased was the eldest daughter of the late Mr. Justice FANNIN, and sister to Mr. M.G. FANNIN, of this city. Until recently, her husband was a resident of Ladysmith, of which town he was at one time mayor.

The late Mrs. ANDERSON, who was much loved and respected by those with whom she had come in contact, will be missed by a large circle of friends, who will join in tendering sympathy to the bereaved family in their sad loss.
The funeral took place yesterday morning, the remains being conveyed from S. Saviour's Cathedral, where a short service was held, to the Church of England Cemetery, where the Very Rev. Dean BARKER conducted the burial service.

It is with feelings of deep regret that we have to announce the death of Mrs. H.E. PURCELL, which sad event took place at Grey's Hospital, Maritzburg, on Thursday last, after a lingering illness. The body was brought up to Greytown by Thursday night's train, and taken to St. James' Church, where it remained until interred. The late Mrs. PURCELL, who was a Miss MOORE, was born in Durban, in 1850, and was thus 64 years of age. Her parents came to this country under the Byrne Emmigration scheme in the ship "Sovereign." In 1869 she married Mr. William PURCELL, who pre-deceased her nearly 4 years ago.The marriage took place at Bishopstowe, where Mr. PURCELL was employed as printer and compositor to the late Bishop COLENSO.
About 40 years ago Mr. and Mrs. PURCELL removed to Seven Oaks, where they started business a the Roadside Hotel, now Seven Oaks Hotel. Here they remained for about 15 years carrying on a very successful business, and 25 years ago moved to Greytown, and opened the Plough Hotel, which they carried on up to the time of Mr. PURCELL's death, nearly four years ago. The late Mrs. PURCELL was of a very retiring disposition, and was always to be found in her home, seldom or ever appearing at any public function, and just living for her home and children. She leaves behind her three sons and five daughters, for all of whom the greatest sympathy is felt in their sad bereavement. Her one unmarried daughter Nellie was in constant attendance at her bedside during her last illness, and was untiring in her devotion.
The funeral service was held at St. James' Church, Canon PENNINGTON being the officiating clergyman, while the church was quite filled with relatives and friends. The chief mourners were Messrs. Arthur and Harry PURCELL (sons) and Mrs. Alf MOORE (brother), while the pall-bearers were Messrs. R.S. GEORGE, J.J. MEEK, W.C. ELBOURNE, C.R. BROOK, S. CARTER and A.W. DAVEY. The coffin was covered with beautiful floral tributes, amongst them being from the following relatives and friends:- Willie and Annie; Arthur, Harry, Nellie; Alfred; Bob and Flora; Jack, Dorsie and Whitty; Malcolm and Edie; Mr and Mrs HM BALDING, Bill WHETTENHALL, Mr and Mrs GILSON, Mr and Mrs HUBER, Mrs LYTTLE and children, Mr and Mrs RALPH, Mrs FITZGERALD, Mrs FOLEY, Mr and Mrs W CARTER, Mr and Mrs BARRETT, Mr and Mrs Frank HANDLEY, Mrs POOLE, Mr GB NEWMARCH, Miss NEWMARCH, Mr and Mrs BARHAM, Mr and Mrs C PENNEY, Doreen, and Mr and Mrs SLATTER.
(Note: Should read: "where they started business at the Roadside Hotel, now Seven Oaks Hotel").

MR. J.D. HAVEMANN
From Our Own Correspondent
Greytown, Aug 25.
I also regret to have to report the death early this morning of Mr. J.D. HAVEMANN, second son of Mr. and Mrs. HAVEMANN, "Bridgeford," In my last week's notes, I mentioned that Mr. HAVEMANN was laid up by having over-strained himself in lifting heavy bags of mealies. Nothing serious was anticipated by his relatives or friends, and his death came as a severe shock to one and all – no one expecting such a sad ending. The late Mr. HAVEMANN was 35 years of age, and unmarried. To his sorrowing parents, brothers and sisters, the deepest sympathy of the whole community is extended in their sad and irreparable loss. Mr. HAVEMANN has lived his whole life in this district, with his parents at their farm "Bridgeford," and was of a quiet and unassuming disposition, and lived the life of a simple farmer.
The funeral took place on Tuesday at "Umvoti Poort," the farm residence of Mr. Dan HAVEMANN.

To join those who have merely gone before. 9310
