The funeral of this deceased lady, widow of the late Mr. James Blacket, of Donnington Villas, who died 1 September 1894 aged 87, took place on Saturday at the Cemetery, and was conducted by the Rev. E. W. Shalders, formerly pastor of the Congregational Church, Newbury, who had engaged to preach in Newbury the following day.

In referring to the deceased, the rev. gentleman made sympathetic allusion to her work in connection with the Congregational Girls' Sunday School, of which she had for about 25 years been superintendent, remarking that her teaching and example would remain in the hearts of the thousands who during that time had been brought under her influence.

A beautiful wreath was contributed by the teachers of the Sunday School, and wreaths were also sent by Mr. and Mrs. Hopson (Belvedere), Mrs J. E Eddison (Leeds), Mr. Adnams and Mrs Glover (Speenhamland), and Mr. and Mrs. T. W. Turner ; also by the three sons, who, with Mr. Robert Pashley, of Rotherham (nephew), Miss Pashley and S. L. Pashley (sisters), Mrs. E. R. Blacket, and Miss Blacket, were present at the funeral.
The funeral arrangements were carried out by Messrs. Penford & Son.

There is a factual error in this document as it says she died on September 1st, and the funeral took place last Saturday, which was also September 1st, so it is likely she actually died a few days earlier than stated.
