LLANDEFEILOG. DEATH AND BURRIAL OF MRS THOMAS, PENVFEDW.—It is with great regret and ZD ZD sorrow we record the death of the above most estimable and christian lady. Death released her after some months of painful illness, at about 2 o'clock, on Saturday, the 8th inst. She suffered acute pain with Christian fortitude and resignation, and passed away at the age of 61 years. Mrs Thomas was the daughter of the late Mr Lodwig, of Felindrc, in the parish of Abergwilly, and a sister to the present holder of that farm, and Mr Lodwig, of Cwmfelin her only sister being Mrs Jeremy, of Alltyfyrddin. She had been brought up from childhood in an eminently Christian family a most noble religious atmostphere pervading the home circle. The deceased was married to Mr William Thomas, Pantyrin, who, with two sons and two daughters, are left to mourn their great loss. Mr Thomas is a prominent deacon at Llandefeilog Calvinistic Methodist Church where the family are members. The deceased was a most faithful member, and took great interest in the cause. She was well-known to a large number of the inhabitants and most highly respected, being possessed with a very fine nature, able and intelligent, as well as being in all things very religious and Christianlike. She loved and was beloved by all who knew her, and especially in her family where she was almost idolised but her end came, and she was translated to a higher sphere in the divine government. The large funeral—one of the largest ever seen in this part of the county—was a proof of her character and noble qualities. There were not less than sixty-one traps at the starting from Penfedw and before reaching Carmarthen for Abergwilly —where she was buried on Thursday week—there were about seventy carriages altogether. People came from far and near to pay their last tribute of respect to the memory of so noble a lady. The most handsome coffin was made by Mr James Griffiths, Pensingrig, I-la.i(lef(--Ilog, most beautiful wreaths were also sent by friends and relatives to adorn her coffin, which was placed in a handsome hearse for transmission to her bst resting place. A short service was held at the house. The minister of the Church (Rev J. Lloyd Thomas) read portions of God's word, and Rev John Owen, Burry Port, prayed. After reaching Abergwilly Independent Chapel, the service was conducted by the Rev J. Lloyd Thomas Rev Emrys Lloyd, Penygraig (I), read and Rev D. Davies, Panteg, prayed. Addresses were delivered by the Revs D. Geler Owen, Kidwelly John Owen, Burry Port; Cad van Jones, Carmarthen John Walters, St. Clears and J. Lloyd Thomas. The Rev B. F. Richards prayed at the close. At the grave side the Rev John Morgans, Ferryside, gave a short address, and the Rev E. Jacobs, Peniel, prayed and a hymn was given out to sing by Rev Mr Phillips, Carmarthen. May the Lord be a guide to the family at Penyfedw in the future as in the past. They have the sincerest sympathy of all in their sad affliction.
