Another of Stoke's old inhabitants passed away on Wednesday in last week, in the person of Mrs. MALE, the wife of Mr. R. T. MALE, of Highway, at the advanced age of 83. She had been a great sufferer for a very long time, and she bore her sufferings with much fortitude.


The funeral of Mrs. R. T. MALE, whose death was reported in our last issue, took place at St. Mary's Churchyard on Friday last. The deceased lady, being one of the oldest members of the Church, the body was taken to the Church the previous evening. The principal mourners were: Mr. R. T. MALE (husband); Messrs. Arthur, Christopher, Sidney, and William MALE (sons); Mrs. SCOVELL, Mrs. B. PATTEMORE and Mrs. W. WARR (daughters); Mrs. A. MALE, Mrs. Chris MALE, Mrs. Sidney MALE and Mrs. W. MALE (daughters-in-law); Messrs. B. PATTEMORE and W. WARR (sons-in-law); Mrs. A. COOPER and Miss Olive MALE (grand-daughters); Messrs. HENSLEIGH and Walter MALE (grandsons); Mrs. W. P. BENNETT, of Martock (niece); Mr. J. B. WILLIES, of Martock (nephew). The coffin was of polished elm, with brass fittings, and bore the inscription: “Sarah MALE, died April 22nd, aged 83 years.” The floral tributes were numerous and handsome. The Rev. H. JOCELYN-DAVIES officiated, and Mr. W. R. WATERMAN played the Dead March in Saul.
