-p Death of Lady Llewelyn. MOTHER OF COLONEL VENABLES LLEWELYX. I Widespread sympathy will be felt for Sir John Llewelyn and his family in the loss they have sus- tained by the death of Lady Llewelyn, which occurred, after a long illness, at Penllergaer, near Swansea, on Saturday. The deceased lady, who was 77 years of age. was the daughter of Sir M. Hicks-Beach, eighth baj-onet and sister of the late Viscount St. Aldwyn. She mar- ried Sir John (then Mr Llewelyn) in May, 1861. The mother of three sons and two daughters, she had the misfortune to lose her two elder sons, one by drowning while bathing at Caswell Bay, and the other as the re. suit of a shooting accident. No lady was more highly esteemed amongst all classes in the Swansea district, and, indeed, throughout South Wales, for she was endowed with those attributes which inspire affection from every section of the community. .But it was amongst the poor and afflicted that she lah- oured most, and it is by these that her loss- will be most aeutelv felt. A life president of the Swansea Hospital, she took an active personal interest in the institution. She was a member of the Hospital Linen Guild., a member of the Hospital Samaritan Fund, a faithful member of the Swansea Guardians' Ladies' Visiting Committee, a. life governor of the Swansea Orphan Home, and president of tho South Wales Nursing Institution, while in all other work for the benefit of the masses she always took a leading part. Her only surviving son is Colonel Charles Venables- i Llewelyn, and her daughters are Miss Llewelyn and Mrs Mount-, wife of Captain Mount, who has been posted missing in France since soon after the outbreak of the war. Sir John and Lady Llewelyn celebrated their golden wedding in May. 1911. and on that occasion the late Mr Herbert. Doyd.
