Much regret was expressed in Trull and district on Wednesday of last week, when the news that Mrs. L. E. COLLARD, wife of Mr. E. COLLARD, had passed away at their residence, East View-terrace, Trull, at the age of 51 years, was received. Deceased, who had not been well for several months, always took an active and willing interest in all that affected the welfare and social life of the village, serving on many committees and organisations, including the Ladies' Committee of the Trull Sports Club. She was a valued member of the Mothers' Union, and also a regular attendant at the Parish Church. Her death will be mourned by a large circle of friends. She leaves a family of one son and a married daughter.


The interment took place on Monday afternoon, at the Parish Church, amid many manifestations of sympathy and regret, the large congregation in the church being a silent testimony to the respect and affection in which Mrs. COLLARD was held and a recognition for the quiet work she had done for the village. The service was conducted by the Vicar, the Rev. M. L. WINTERTON. The coffin, of unpolished oak, with brass fittings, was engraved:- “Louisa Ellen COLLARD, died 27th May, 1936, aged 51 years,” and on it rested a large cross and wreath of beautiful flowers from the husband and family.
