OBITUARY
Alice Kentwell
Castle' Hill circuit has lost its old
est member by the passing of Mrs.
Alice Kentwell in her 95th year.
She was one of those quiet,
kindly, sincere and reliable people
who make no fuss and claim no
limelight, but who contribute so
much to the comfort and satisfaction
of life. In recent years, extreme age
had placed upon her the limitations
which are inevitable with one who
is still pursuing the highway of
mortal existence past the ninetieth
milestone. Deafness, in particular,
excluded her from so much that she
used to love in Christian (fellow
ship. But in other ways she was
unfailingly regular in attendance
upon the worship of God, and ready
in unobtrusive but valuable Christ
ian service.
Her husband, Mr. George Kent
well, died seventeen years ago.
Her family consisted of seven sons
and three daughters. Three of these
also predeceased her. The others re
main to reflect in their lives the in.
fluence of a Godly mother, and to
enrich the church and community
by the contribution they are
making.
Her home, 'Mt. Pleasant', set
amid the lovely citrus orchards
from which her living was gained,
was a centre of kindly hospitality
to which a long succession of our
ministers have ever been cordially
welcomed.
