ISudden Death. I


Sudden Death. I KNIGHTON LADY'S DEMISE. I We regret to record the sudden death of Miss I Elizabeth Parry, Russell road, Knighton, which took place last Tuesday morning. Miss Parry, who was 40 years of age, had been for some time house-keeper to her half-brother, Mr Edward I Leeke, who has been a widower for several years. She was a native of Llandrinio, Llanymyneob, and formerly lived at Buttington, Welshpool. It appears that on Tuesday morning about half-past nine, she was talking to some neighbours, and appeared to be in her usual health. Shortly after- wards Mr Grimes of Rhos, called with milk, which as a rule, he delivered at the front door. On this occasion, however, failing to obtain any response to his knocking, he went round the house found the back door open and, to his sur- prise, saw deceased lying on the hearth in front of the fireplace. There was no fire in the grate. Mr Grimes called in some neighbours who assisted him to place the body on the couch. The doctor and nurse Tate were immediately sent for, and on their arrival they pronounced life extinct. De- ceased had a very serious illness about 12 months ago, and has suffered from a weak heart. No in- quest was necessary, as Dr. J. A. K. Griffiths, who had been her medical attendant, and to whom her death did not come as a surprise, was able to certify that an epileptic seizure was the cause of the sad event. Much sympathy is felt for the brother and his family in their sorrow. The funeral took place on Friday afternoon, the service in the Parish Church and at the graveside being read by the Rev. H. O. Grime (curate-in- charge). A wheel-bier was used, the bearers be- ing Messrs. W. Jordan, J. Powell, C. Lowe and W. Francis. The mourners were Mr E. Leeke (brother), Miss E. Parry (daughter), the Misses F. P. and M. Leeke (nieces), Mrs Jordan, Mrs Hamar, Mrs Passey, and Mrs Thomas. A pro- cession of friends preceded the bier, including Messrs. R. Thomas, A. Griffiths, A. Jones, J. Davies. H. Passey, R. Price, T. Lowe, J. Jones and W. Phillips, The polished coffin with brass trimmings was supplied by Mr W. Roberts.
