Obituary It is our sad duty to have to chronicle the death of Mrs. H.H. DUGMORE at the ripe old age of eighty-one. Few people indeed there will be in Queenstown who will not miss the kindly face of old Mrs. DUGMORE. Mrs DUGMORE came out to this country in 1835 with her mother and sister – nearly sixty years ago. In 1838 she married the Rev. H.H. DUGMORE, a minister of the Wesleyan connection, than whom there is no man more loved, esteemed, and respected in the Eastern Province. Mrs DUGMORE was an ideal missionary’s wife and through many hard and trying years she bravely and devotedly stood at the side of her husband, cheerfully, zealously and unselfishly assisting him in the great word he had undertaken. Her memory will ever live fresh in the minds of innumerable people both European and Native, who had the privilege of coming in contact with her. After her husband’s retirement from the missionary service Mrs DUGMORE devoted her life to doing good in, and around, Queenstown. Where ever help or assistance was required there she was to be found, always ready to do some good, kind, unselfish action. She was in perfect health up to a few days prior to her death. She then caught a cold, not a very severe one, but she had to keep to her bed for a few days. On Saturday evening she seemed to be recovering, when at about half-past nine she found a difficulty in breathing, which increased rapidly. Dr BATCHELOR was sent for immediately, but on arriving found the deceased lady sinking. Without a murmur, calmly and without a struggle she departed; eleven o’clock already saw the close of a good and noble ..fe. To her bereaved and aged partner in life we tender our sincerest sympathy in his great grief and bereavement, as also to her children and to the large number of grand-children.
