The obituary below appeared in an unknown publication on a date not known.
Obituary - The village has sustained a great loss in the passing of a very respected person Mrs. J. Burton of Hill Top Farm, who entered into rest after a long and painful illness bourn with much patience and cheerfulness. Not only everyone in the village but far and near are mourning her loss, and much sympathy goes out to her husband, sons, and daughters. Her great motherly heart embraced all who came into contact with her, and all for miles round feel that they indeed have lost a "mother". For over 20 years it had been her delight to think and do her utmost for others. In sickness and sorrow her kindly presence was always where it was most needed. The children revered her as did the fathers and mothers. Her home was ever a haven of rest and refreshment. No stranger ever entered the village but was soon aware what a valuable friend and helper she was to them at all times. Even through her long illness her thought was ever for others. It was fitting that she should be laid to rest in this beautiful little village amongst the hills where she had been honoured for many years. The Church was filled to it's utmost capacity with relatives and others. It. The wreaths which numbered over forty were very beautiful."
