OBITUARY

 

Died, at Holyoke, June 10, 1890, at 7:30 p.m., Mrs. Maggie Gertrude Beggs wife of S.W. Beggs, of Holyoke. Mrs. Beggs was the daughter of Mr. T.E. Clingan, was born at Sandy Lake, Pennsylvania, March 8,1867.

 

 She, early in life, made a profession of religion and united with the Presbyterian church. She lived a most earnestly devoted christian life and her life was, to all who knew her, an unanswerable argument in favor of the reality of the Christian religion.

 

It seems but a few days since Stewart Beggs brought from her home in Pennsylvania to his new home in Holyoke his amiable young bride. She soon made many warm friends and none knew her but to esteem her most highly.

 

Seventeen short months to the very day, hour and minute from the time they were pronounced husband and wife

she breathed her last. Another noble life gone out in its prime, another new home left broken and desolate.

The young husband in his bereavement has the heartfelt sympathy of all who know him. The remains was conveyed to the old home at Sandy Lake, Pennsylvania.
