Mrs Williams was the daughter of the Rev John Dingle, M.A., vicar of Lanchester, Durham, and married the Rev Richard Williams who, for nineteen years, was vicar of Beddgelert and died there in 1898. The funeral took place last Friday, the 28th May, and was commenced by a short service by the Rev John Rowlands, M.A., vicar of Aberdovey, at the residence of the deceased lady. The party then proceeded to Beddgelert, some hymns being beautifully rendered by the Church choir at Aberdovey Station before the train started.
At Beddgelert, the service in the Church was conducted by the Vicar (the Rev J. Jenkins, B.A.,) assisted by the Rev J. Lloyd Jones. M.A., rural dean of Eifionydd; Rev W. M. Roberts, M.A., Morwylfa, Aberdovey Rev C. P. Price, M.A., rector of Maentwrog, and the Rev H. J. Manley, vicar of Penrhyndeudraeth. All the deceased lady’s family, a brother, and some old friends attended as mourners and a large number of the inhabitants of the village and neighbourhood were present in Church and at the graveside. Some beautiful wreaths and crosses were sent by sympathising friends. Mrs Williams, during her long residence at Beddgelert, had, by her remarkable unselfishness of character, by her devotion to church work, and by her reliability as a friend and counsellor, made herself much beloved. Though resident in Aberdovey less than two years, she had been very active in the work of the Church and will be much regretted by the many friends she had made in that brief time.
