Mein, Florence (Florrie) (1887-1914)

Transcription of obituary published in the Primitive Methodist Magazine by R.L.

Miss Florrie Mein passed to the higher life at the age of twenty-seven. But though called to the heavenly home so young in years, she put into those years an abiding expression of the real helpfulness of the companionship of Christ. 

During nine years of invalidism, involving oftentimes the most acute suffering, her courage and patience never wavered. In the most trying hours her unselfishness revealed itself in her thought for others. Her bright and cheery disposition made her sick-room a benediction to her visitors.

And what letters she sent her friends! They were messengers, wafting the breezes of hope and peace to many a troubled and embarrassed spirit. The Bible and hymn book she treasured in her heart. 

The funeral on September 21st, 1914, was conducted by Revs. J.M. Craddock, W. Johnson and the writer of this memoir. To Mr. and Mrs. H. J. Mein and family we extend our deepest sympathy.


Florrie was born in early 1887 at Howden, Co. Durham, to parents Henry Johnson Mein, a colliery manager, and Annie Collier. She was baptised on 15 May 1887 at Tow Law Wesleyan Methodist Chapel.

Florrie died on 18 September 1914 at Toft Hill, Bishop Auckland, Co. Durham.
