Choules, Susanna (nee Eyles) (1843-1916)

Transcription of obituary published in the Primitive Methodist Magazine by E.S.

Through her whole life Mrs. Choules was in closest fellowship with our Church. She became a member in early life, and remained so for over sixty years. Wherever her lot was cast she sought out our people, and entered earnestly into the Lord’s work. She was ever ready to practise severe self-denial for the Church she dearly loved. 

Her home was ever noted for its generous hospitality. She enjoyed a rich and bright experience. She was possessed of a keen intellect, and was fond of reading. Her aims were high, and she strove to enter into fulness of life.

For a number of years she was in poor health, and suffered much. Her end came unexpectedly, but it was peaceful and triumphant. She was one of the very choicest of wives. On April 23rd, 1916, she passed away, aged seventy-three years, and was laid to rest in Chatham Cemetery amid every expression of sympathy and love.
