Don

The township is in a state of gloom, as in addition to the sorrow caused by the dangerous illness of Her Majesty, a couple of our homes have been visited by death. Mr. John Gibson has had the misfortune to lose his youngest son, who was buried yesterday, whilst another child is dangerously ill, and before the sad ceremony was completed the sorrowful intelligence was spread that Mrs. J. Johnston had breathed her last, after a lingering illness, from consumption. She was in her 35th year, and leaves a husband and three young children to mourn their loss.

The Advocate 23rd January 1901

MEMORIAM

In loving memory of our dear sister, Georgina Johnston, who died at the Don on the 22nd of January, 1901, in the 35th year of her age.
Our dear sister is gone, oh! Why do we weep,
We know she is not dead, but only does sleep,
And when the trump sounds, from dust she’ll awake
Her place in the ranks of the ransomed to take.
Gone, but not forgotten.
Inserted by her loving brother and sister, George and Lucy Crowden.

Death of Mrs. J. Johnston

The death occurred suddenly at a private hospital early yesterday morning of Mrs. Johnston, under painfully sad circumstances. The deceased lady was the elder daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James Keddie of Leith, and was on a visit to her parents, and not feeling well on Wednesday, her husband procured a motor car and brought her home, and the same night she was taken to the hospital. Drs. Payne and Addison were in attendance, and no immediate danger was anticipated until 7 a.m. yesterday, when Mr. Johnston and Mrs. Keddie were sent for. Mrs. Johnston was found to be in a very low condition, but conscious, and soon passed away. She was the second wife of Mr. Johnston, who is left with two young children; an infant a few hours old will be interred in the same coffin as its mother, the funeral taking place in the Don cemetery tomorrow afternoon. Much sympathy is expressed for the bereaved family, as Mr. Johnston is widely known, having lived in the district for about a quarter of a century.

The Last Sad Rites

The mortal remains of the late Mrs. John Johnston and her infant daughter were consigned to their last resting-place in the Don cemetery on Saturday afternoon. Interment took place in the family allotment. The funeral was one of the largest for a long time, residents being present from Forth, Don, Melrose, Spreyton and Devonport, to many of whom the deceased lady had been known from childhood. The chief mourners were Mr. J. Johnston (husband), Mr. J. Keddie (father), Mr. H. Keddie (brother), Capt. J. A. Good (brother-in-law), and Private Stanley Johnston (stepson). The very numerous beautiful floral tributes of sympathy evinced the deep and wide sympathy felt for the bereaved families. The coffin was borne by four brethren of the Loyal Mersey Lodge, P.A.F.S., W.M. Bro. C. Neville, Bro. F. W. Padfield and P. M. Bros. J. Robinson and J. Webster, the husband being a member of the order. The Rev. F. A. Leeder conducted a short service in the house, and with Ensign Darby (S.A.) concluded the religious service at the grave.

Wedding Bells

Johnston - Keddie

A number of relatives and friends gathered at the residence of Mr. James Keddie, of Leith, on Wednesday to witness Mr. John Johnston, of Devonport, leading Miss Helen Thompson Montgomery Keddie to Hymen's altar. The newly settled pastor of the Devonport Baptist Church (Rev. F. J. Miles) officiated and one would gather from his conduct of the service that he has had frequent practice in Westralia. Mr. Charles Buckpitt acted as best man and Miss Jessie Keddie filled the position of bridesmaid. The bride was given away by her father. She was attired in a charming costume of silk spotted cream crepe-line, trimmed with silk chiffon, ribbon and lace. The bodice had latticed ribbons over a closely tucked front, the intersections off the latticing being finished off with pearls. The usual veil and wreath of orange blossoms were worn and the bride carried a shower bouquet. The bridesmaid wore a neat costume of cream voile, prettily trimmed with silk ribbon and lace. After the ceremony the guests sat down to a sumptuous breakfast, provided by the bride's parents. The Rev. F. J. Miles proposed the health of the bride and bridegroom in felicitous terms and subsequently the happy couple departed for the railway station amid an outburst of good wishes. The bride's travelling dress was a tailor-made costume of navy blue cloth, with white facings and piping, the jacket worn over a pretty white silk vest. A handsome costume was completed by a blue felt hat, trimmed ribbons and plumes to match.
