Mrs. W J McNaughton Dies At Lancaster, nee isabel Edgar

Lancaster lost one of its oldest and most highly esteemed residents in the death on Wednesday, Sept. 9th of Mrs. W. J. McNaughton. The deceased who was formerly Miss Isabel Edgar, was born in the second concession of Lancaster on Oct. 23rd 1859 and was the last member of that family.

In August 1941 she met with an accident at her home on Oak Street, which necessitated her removal to Cornwall General Hospital suffering with a fractured hip. Returning to Lancaster the following month she was taken to the home of her son Robert and Mrs. McNaughton where she received every attention in the months that followed and had recovered nicely . About six weeks ago she went to visit her daughter Mrs. J. R. McLachlan and Mr. McLachlan and was apparently enjoying good health until Sunday when she suffered a stroke from which she never regained consciousness.

She was a women of many beautiful traits of character. She had a kind and affectionate disposition with a cherry greeting for her friends on all occasions and will be sadly missed by all. She was a diligent church worker and was an honorary president in both The Ladies Aid and Women's Missionary Society of St. Andrew's Church. Her home was always open to members of these societies and their friends, and many pleasant memories will be cherished of gatherings held in her home.

The funeral which was largely attended was held on Friday afternoon from the residence of J. R. McLachlan to St. Andrew's Church where the service was conducted by Rev. J. A. Smith assisted by Rev. G.E. Evans of Knox Church. Interment took place on the family plot in second concession cemetery.

The pallbearers were six nephews, Robert Edgar, E. L . McNaughton, R. D. McNaughton, Alex F. McLennan, Lorne McBain, Thomas Ross.

The casket was surrounded by beautiful flowers, a silent token of love from family and friends. Many messages of sympathy wee received by the family.

Left to mourn the loss of a devoted mother are three sons and two daughters, A. E. McNaughton, R. W. McNaughton, Lancaster, John McNaughton, Manitoba, Mrs. J. R. McLachlan and Mrs. Louise Pattingale, Lancaster.

In early 1997 we contacted a number of Galleries and Museums in Victoria, and Vancouver, B.

She did not show up in any of their Reference books, although from the newspapers clippings of the 1940 she is described as a famous Vancouver Sculpturess and painter.

Former resident accepts honourary doctorate

News correspondent

It takes a special person to devote his life to the ministry, and an even more outstanding one to receive an honourary doctorate for doing it.

Lancaster native Rev. Lloyd Fourney qualifies in both respects and received an d honourary doctorate from his alma mater the Presbyterian College in Montreal at its graduation last week.

"I was dumb founded, amazed," said Fourney, who is now minister at the First Presbyterian Church in Edmonton but is still well known in "the area through his parents Eileen and John Fourney,

For Lloyd Fourney, recognition isn't what draws him to the ministry, it's helping others that touches his heart.

"In the church, you meet a lot of wonderful people, said Fourney.

From weddings, to funerals to sickness, Fourney is able to instinctively connect with and comfort people.

"You're privileged to be in private parts of their life, " he explained.

Seeing that relationship as a privilege is what draws Fourney close to his congregation and to the numerous homeless and refugees he helps.

His church in Edmonton is a corner stone in the city foodbank and has sponsored refugees from as far away as the Sudan, Iraq, Zaire, Rhwanda and Ethiopia.

Caption under photo reads;
Rev Lloyd Fourney preached at St. Andrews in Lancaster commemorating his 30th anniversary of ordination.

This effort to go one step beyond duty is what prompted the college to offer him the doctorate.

Since 1985, the church has sponsored 15 refugees and given support to many other newcomers to Canada.

He is a strong advocate for human rights and works hard to reunite refugees with their families.

At least one family was so thankful, they asked, Fourney to name their newborn child, a custom in their culture.

But blending different cultures is a skill Fourney has fine tuned.

"I'm father Lloyd to a lot of them," he joked.

In addition to serving Edmonton's community, Fourney has worked diligently within the, Presbyterian

He served as minister in North Battleford, Saskatchewan, before heading to Moose Jaw in 1973 and finally to Edmonton in 1983.

Throughout his career he has served on committees of the church courts including General Assembly, The Board of Congretional Life, Presbyterian World Service and Development and the International Affairs Committee. He has also served as Moderator of the Presbytery of Assiniboia, The Presbytery of Edmonton, the Synod of Saskatchewan and of Alberta.

Fourney received his doctorate only days after celebrating his 30th anniversary in the ministry, preaching the sermon at St. Andrews in Lancaster on May 9, the very same day he was ordained.

"It was very affirming in to see so many familiar faces he said.

Some of those faces were the same ones present at the very first sermon he gave at the age of 17 as part of the youth group.

All went well until he realized church had finished 20 minutes too early.

"I was young and probably spoke too fast," he laughed.

But Fourney had a feeling he would be a minister when he was as young as four or five.

There is a picture of him, he confesses, at the age of five in a clerical gown and a bathing suit - a strange mix for youngsters at play.

But the comical photo was a sign of things to come.

In 1969 he was ordained after receiving a Bachelor of Divinity degree from Presbyterian College., It is an event which is still very clear in his mind.

The "laying of hands" ceremony, where all ministers present put their hands on his shoulders to initiate him into the ministry is pressed firmly in his mind.

"You never forget the weight of that and the responsibility you're taking on," said Fourney.

The responsibility was not one he took lightly.

Being available to his congregation is something very important to him.

Some days it is in their grief others in, their joy, but one is usually followed quickly by the other.

Fourney reminisces about one winter which had seen the deaths of some young members of the church very close to Christmas.

The mood in the, holiday season was solemn.

"How do you do a Christmas service then?,"

But that same year, a young mother received a heart transplant on Dec.
23. He went to see her a few, days after the operation and found a radiant young woman, ready to celebrate life again.

"You feel you don't have the energy to do one more thing, it was such a lift to see her.

"It's those kind of moments that sustain you."

Stress and grief may be parts of life, but "out of it sometimes comes beautiful things."

The Sudden demise of

Hattie Maria Morrison

, wife of John L. Morrison of Lot 18, Con. 6, Lancaster, on Thursday, 29th January, 1914, at the early age of 41 years, was a shock to the whole community who held the deceased in very high regard.

The deceased had suffered from Diabetes for upwards of a year, but was able to follow her usual duties until the previous Sunday.

She leaves to mourn her loss, her husband, five young children, and two sisters, Mrs. R. A. McGregor of Dalhousie Station, and Mrs. Jas. Priest of Montreal, as well as a legion of friends who appreciated her ever youthful and jolly disposition.

The funeral on Saturday to the cemetery at Dalhousie Mills was largely attended not withstanding the storm (over 60 carriages) where the service was conducted by Rev. J. A. Matheson.

The Pall-bearers were Donald L. Morrison, Robert A. McGregor, James Priest, Gillis McBain, Lorne McBain,
(the rest of the obituary which should have continued on the next page seems to be missing.)
