Atkins, Mrs (d1914 or 1915)
Transcription of obituary published in the Primitive Methodist Magazine by W. Roberts
On Saturday, October 23rd, there passed over the river one of the most faithful souls in Primitive Methodism. In the early days of her life she remembered Hugh Bourne and William Clowes. Soon after her marriage she, with her husband, came to London, where they have lived together in the happiest of homes for the past fifty-one years.
No one knows what work she put into our church at Durham Road in the Holloway Circuit, where she was in membership for about forty-eight years. Some three years ago she and her husband were transferred to our little church at Highbury Vale.
Hers was a ripe Christian experience. She was always glad to talk about her Saviour. Jesus to her was most real, and to have communion with Him was a source of great joy. She was fond of the old Methodist hymns and tunes.
Our heart’s sympathy goes out to her stricken husband. On Friday, October 29th, all that was mortal of our sister was taken to its resting-place at Finchley.
I have not been able to identify Mrs Atkins in online records. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
