This obituary appeared in the local paper for Mary (Howard) Drake born February 2, 1845 and died July 25, 1919 in Cornwall.
MRS. ENOCH DRAKE.
On July 25th, Cornwall, P.E.I., experienced a deep sense of loss in the death of Mrs. Enoch Drake, at the age of seventy-five years. Deceased had been in failing health for some months due to complications following pneumonia.
Mrs. Drake (nee Mary Howard) was united in marriage to Mr. Enoch Drake on February 15th, 1866. The children of the marriage were; John, living in Keddleston, Sask,; James Howard, living at home with his widowed mother, the father having died on Nov. 12, 1904, and Susannah Jane, also residing in Keddleston, Sask.
The deceased joined the Methodist church at an early age. Her life, noted for simplicity of faith and transparency of character, was a benediction to many people; whilst her home, characterized for its Christian hospitality, was a shelter to friend and stranger alike. Her many mourners and loved ones, whilst realizing that her translation has narrowed for them, life's circle, yet has widened a friendship in the skies; for on such saints as Mrs. Drake God's mantle of glory eternally falls.
