Coppack, Elizabeth (nee Taylor) (1868-1913)

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

Our Connah’s Quay Church (Buckley Circuit) has sustained a severe loss by the passing of Mrs. W. Coppack. Born at Connah’s Quay in 1868, Mrs. Coppack had an almost unbroken connection with our society, and in its multiform activities was always ready to do her share. By her kindly, consistent, and gentle Christian womanhood she exerted a beneficent influence, and in the home, as many of our ministers can testify, she dispensed a gracious hospitality. 

About two years ago she was smitten by a painful affliction, which, borne with exemplary patience, terminated fatally on New Year’s Eve. The husband in his grief and loneliness has the sympathy and prayers of the whole Church. 

The earthly remains of our sister were laid to rest in Connah’s Quay Cemetery on January 3rd. A memorial service was conducted on Jan. 4th by Mr. J. Coppack Williams.


Elizabeth was born in 1868 at Connah’s Quay, Flintshire, to parents John Taylor, a fisherman, and Jane.

Before her marriage Elizabeth worked as a dressmaker (1881).

She married William Coppack (1871-1961), a mariner (1901), on 7 August 1893 at Connah’s Quay, Flintshire. They had one child who died in infancy.

Elizabeth died on 30 December 1913 at Connah’s Quay, Flintshire.
