Ellen Jane Fullerton

PUGWASH, Dec. 5 - After a five weeks' illness in Highland View Hospital, Miss E. Jane Fullerton passed away Wednesday evening to the great regret of a wide circle of friends. A brother, John and a sister, Mrs. Harry Smith, of Eston, Sask., and her mother, Mrs. Demain Fullerton, were with her during the past week.
The deceased was a very active woman in church work and was noted for her enthusiasm and fine executive ability. She was engaged in home missionary work as a deaconess for several years, but on the death of her father a few years ago she returned home to devote her life to her mother. But she still found time to maintain her interest in church work and at the time of her death was president of the Cumberland Presbyterial of the United Church, Superintendent of the Sunday School at Pugwash, teacher of the Bible class and president of two missionary societies. In these departments she found scope for her fine capabilities and her passing will be deeply mourned by all who were associated with her in any of these departments as well as to the members of the family.
Besides her mother and her sister, Mrs. Smith, there are four brothers, John and Earl of Pugwash, Bentley of Barrington Passage and Wyman in the Canadian West. The many friends of the family will extend heartfelt sympathy to them in their great loss. She was taken to the United Church of which she was a member on Saturday at 2 p.m. where her paster, Rev. Gordon S. Fraser, gave a very comforting address. The quartet sang very beautifully "My Father's Home is Bright and Fair", after a hymn and a short prayer the remains were taken to Pugwash cemetery and laid beside those of her father. The girls of the C.G.I.T. of which Miss Fullerton formed in connection with her other church work, carried the flowers which was a very touching part of the service and also did likewise at the graveside.
