The death occurred suddenly from heart failure on Boxing Day of Miss Harriet Sperring, of 13 Kennett-road, at the age of 66.


Miss Sperring was the third daughter of the late Mr. James Walter Sperring, who was a mechanical engineer in Newbury. She entered the scholastic profession as a girl of 16 at St. John’s School, and afterwards became assistant schoolmistress at Ardingley, in Sussex. From there she transferred to Twyford, and subsequently obtained the position of head mistress at Fifield, near Oxford, where she remained for eleven years. She was sixteen years at Burghfield and eight at Thatcham, leaving Thatcham five years ago to live with her sisters at Kennet-road.


Miss Sperring was devoted to her work, and her love for children and sound common sense inspired confidence wherever she taught.


The funeral took place on Saturday at the Parish Church, the service being conducted by the Rector, the Rev. L.R. Majendie, and the interment at the Newtown-road Cemetery.


The mourners were Mr. Walter Sperring (brother), Mr. Walter Sperring (Reading) and Mr. William Sperring (nephew), Mrs. Sperring (Hungerford) sister-in-law, Mrs. Dove and Miss. Scribbens (Burghfield).

Miss Sperring’s sisters were unable to attend owing to indisposition.
