LOGIE -- On Monday, 11th inst., at 57 Leamington terrace, Edinburgh, Scotland, Mary Logie, daughter of Major Logie, 97th Regiment, late of Kingston, Ontario.
At a meeting of the Orphan's Home Committee, it was unanimously agreed that the corresponding secretary should be instructed to send to the relative of the late Miss Logie, former recording secretary of the Orphan's Home an expression of the sincere regret with which they had heard of her death, and of their warm appreciation of her unselfish character, and of her valuable and unwearied devotion to the interests of the Orphan's Home during so many years of active labor. As one of the founders of the Orphan's Home, her memory will be gratefully perpetuated in the institution which, in its infancy, owed so much to her fostering care. Miss Logie was for many years a well known and respected inhabitant of Kingston. her father, Major Logie, on his retirement as a veteran from the army, settled on the pleasant property known as Glenlogie, in Pittsburg, Ontario, Canada, now the residence of S. Rogers, Esq. Previous to his death, however, the family removed to the city, where Mrs. and Miss Logie continued to reside, until the death of the former in 1866. Miss Logie was always a most active Christian worker, both in church and charitable work. Along with her friend the late Miss Macdonald, she was one of the most active members of the S. Andrew's Ladies Missionary Association which did much to supply the religions destitution of the surround country; and she took an energetic share in the work of the Orphan's home, from its first foundation. She was for many years its faithful and efficient Recording Secretary, taking a warm interest in everything that concerned the institution.
After the death of Mrs. Logie, Miss Logie resided for some time with her brother, the late Judge Logie, of Hamilton, but finally went to Scotland, where for a number of years past she has resided in Edinburgh with the widow of another brother, Sheriff [William] Logie, who died soon after her return to Scotland. In Edinburgh, she still continued to engage in active Christian work as long as her failing strength enabled her to continue it. She always retained a warm interest in Kingston and its interests, and nothing gave her greater pleasure than to greet old Kingston friends who visited Scotland. Despite growing weakness, she kept up a regular correspondence with some old friends here to the last. But increasing infirmities had gradually laid her aside from the active life she had always lived, and early in February a paralytic seizure rendered her helpless, and proved a forerunner of a quiet and happy release. Such occurred on February 11th, 1889. It may well be said of her, "she rests from her labors, and her works do follow her."
- Mary moved to Scotland after the death of her parents and lived with her brother.
