"was individually remembered at Christmas and at other times. She was a member of the Women's Auxiliary in her parish and interested in its work. Few women in the world have, during a long life time, been so largely occupied in kindly acts to other people, in a quiet and undemonstrative way as was she.
More than ten months ago she suffered a stroke of paralysis, since which time she has been confined to her bed, helpless and speechless. Now she rests, and her works do follow her. May she enjoy increasing peace and light!
The burial was from St. Paul's chapel on the 14th inst. Mrs. Meacham is survived by her husband, and by her brother, L. H. More- house, president of The Young Churchman Company, and by a number of nephews and nieces, to some of whom--as to the writer of this memorial--she has been as a second mother."
