Mrs. B. Sharpe Passes Away
Old and Highly Respected Resident Succumbs to Attack of Heart

The community was deeply grieved on Monday to learn of the death
of Mrs. Barbara Sharpe, which occurred quite suddenly at the
residence of her son, Joseph R., where she had made her home
since the death of her husband, James, some nine years ago. She
retired on Sunday evening in her usual good health, and in fact
early Monday morning was apparently in her usual health, but was
suddenly seized with heart failure and passed peacefully away at
11:30 am before the physician who was hastily summoned and on his
way to the house arrived.
The late Mrs. Barbara Sharpe who was in her 86th year was
highly respected and much esteemed and her passing will be
mourned by a large circle of friends. Born in Chatham, N.B.,
October 5th, 1838, she moved to Campbellton with her husband in
September 1869, and has been a resident of our town ever since,
and has enjoyed the respect and esteem of all. The late Mrs.
Sharpe was a consistent member of the Methodist Church, and on
arrival here, there being no Methodist Church, she set herself
about to have one established, and her untiring efforts proved
successful, and she was naturally one of the first to become a
member of the Campbellton Methodist Church. Her whole life has
been devoted to the work of God. She was largely instrumental in
the formation of the W.C.T.U. in Campbellton, and was therefore
one of this society's chartered members, and in this connection
we might point out that at the time of her death was the oldest
chartered member in the Campbellton Division of the W.C.T.U. In
all good work she took a deep interest. Only some two months ago
a meeting of the W.C.T.U. was held at her residence, for the
purpose of having her with them. She leaves to mourn the loss of
a kind and devoted mother, two sons, Joseph R. of Campbellton and
Harvey W. of Quebec to whom the ....sympathy of the the loss of.....
