May 8th 1942
By the death of Mrs Edwin Evans, Penpellenny, Goytrey has lost one of it’s oldest and most respected inhabitants. Born at the old Goytrey farmhouse near Nantyderry 91 years ago, she has lived in Goytrey practically all her life. Baptised early in life, she has been a consistent member of Saron Baptist Church all through the years, and a faithful member of the choir.
Mr and Mrs Evans reared a large family of sons with one daughter, who has devotedly nursed her mother during recent years. One son, Arthur, won the M.M. in France and commission for bravery in the field, and recently retired from Cardiff Police Force as Sergeant.
The funeral was at Saron on Sunday, the Rev Rees officiating. A large number of floral tributes included one from the church.
Mrs Evans retained all her faculties to the last and shortly before passing away recited the 121st psalm.
