Tingate, Annie (nee Mews) (1829-1912)

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

Mrs. Tingate, of Blaydon-on-Tyne, was born at Haltwhistle in 1829, but with her parents removed in early life to Allendale, where, during a revival at Allendale, our sister found the Saviour, and at once became an active worker for Christ.

After her marriage she and her husband removed to Blaydon-on-Tyne, where for over forty years they lived—her husband filling important positions in the Church. Our sister maintained up to the last a deep and loyal attachment to our Church. It was always a pleasure to talk with her of “the good old times” —and the glorious revival scenes she had witnessed in Allendale. She had great reverence and respect for the ambassadors of Christ, and would give many incidents relating to the work of C.C. McKechnie, J. Hallam, and others. 

Her last years were spent in quietness with her daughter, Mrs. Beveridge. Calmly and joyfully she passed to her rest on Sunday, October 10th, 1912, in her eighty-third year. On the following Wednesday a service was held in our Blaydon-on-Tyne Church, conducted by Rev. R. Heppenstall, which was largely attended.
