    • Newspaper clipping:

      The first of these was one well known to many readers of the Presbyterian, who by her long, steady and affectionate adherence to our Church, and by her active furtherance of its interests, well deserves a place among its honoured names; -- Mrs. Logie of Kingston, who died on the 10th of March, in the 84th year of her age. She was born in the parish of Gamrie, Aberdeenshire, and had led a changeful life in various parts of the world, before finally settling down with her husband, Major Logie, on their property of Glenlogie near Kingston. Since that time, -- thirty-six years ago, she had been a member of St. Andrew's Church, and throughout the many changes which have since taken most zealous adherents. Being a resident in the township of Pittsburgh at the time when the Mission which has since resulted in the formation of a Church there, was organized, Mrs. Logie was one of its most active originators, being indefatigable in collecting funds, and in stirring up the interest and co-operation of the people. After coming to reside in Kingston where she has lived since her husband's death -- though gradually growing less and less able, to engage in active work, she never lost her warm interest in all that concerned the good of the Church at large, and of the congregation with which she was connected in particular.

      She was indeed no common character, and one which now that she is gone could not be easily replaced. She was one of the best specimens of the sterling old Scottish nature, in its most attractive form. To great strength and originality of mind and character, and clearness of perception and judgment, she united great warmth of heart, genuine and judicious practical benevolence, and a geniality and liveliness of manner which made her a general favourite, though candid and outspoken to a remarkable degree. As a friend she was most steadfast and faithful, and to the end of her life, her sympathies seemed to retain all their strength and freshness, enabling her to enter even into the pleasures of the young, with whom she was a great favourite, and whom she liked to have around her. Advancing years and trials seemed rather to mellow and ripen than to weaken the fine points of her character, and to make more distinctly visible her Christian faith and trust, and the guiding principle which regulated her naturally kindly impulses. She has left a vacant place which will not easily be filled up, and the affectionate remembrance of her in may hearts will long perpetuate her memory. She was mercifully spared the protracted season of weakness and suffering which sometimes falls to the lot of the aged, and but a few days of illness intervened between her enjoyment of perfect health and her peaceful entrance into "the rest that remaineth for the people of God." She was laid in her last earthly resting place on the 13th of March.
