FUflEML OF MRS CILfyOUH, LLWYPPIA. On Thursday, with painful suddenness, the news was spread through Mid-Rhondda and x enrhiweeiber that Mrs G-ilmour, Llwvnvpia, had passed away. She was the second wife of Mr John Gilmour, of the Glamorgan Collieries and the only daughter of Mr and Mrs Bevan, of the Lee Hok-ol, Penrhiweeiber, Great and widespread sympathy has been expressed for the husband and parents. The deceased ladv had been married only three years, and was well- known in the district, having been brought up in Tonypandy from childhood; and although her parents had removed to Penrhiwceiber some years ago, the early connection, mainly through family ties, had been intimately maintained. Mr Gilmour has also been most prominently situ- ated under the popular firm of the Glamorgaa Coal Company for the last 25 years, and has endeared himself to all who have had the privi- lege of co-operating with him, either co-ordinate- ly cr mibordinately. Also, the Bevan family, of which Mrs Gilmour was a member, are great- ly respected, because they are well-known m the district. On all sides, therefore, the death elicited very many condolences. For the last year Mrs Gilmour's health had been most in- different, and iher medical advisers were not sanguine that her young life would be a long one. She had been a painful subject to a dropsical tendency, and the contraction of a cold in so recent a drive as last Bank Holiday accelerated one of these attacks, and on Thursday monring she succumbed. She was much beloved for her hearty generosity to one and all. Her good and benevolent qualities were well-known to all who knew her, and many recipients of her con- stant charity are left to mourn her death. The funeral on Monday spoke unmistakably the re- spect she had won both at Penrhiweeiber and at Llwynypia, and the manifestations of grief were many and intensely sincere. The service at Llwvnypia House was conducted by the Rev T. G. Jenkyn, Salem, and at the cemetery by the Rev T. H. Williams, curate, Bodringallt. We observed also the Rev Josiah Thomas at the funeral, while the Rev R. Thomas, Penrbiw- ceiber, was unavoidably prevented by an en- gagement in North Wales from being present.
