Obituary

The death of the senior deacon of the church, Albert D. L. Herrick at Springfield on March 1st at the home of his brother, Russell S. Herrick removes a faithful member. For a period of thirty-six years Mr. Herrick served at different times as choir leader, Sunday school teacher, church clerk and deacon since May 1st, 1886. Deacon Herrick was an ideal churchman and noble Christian; kind, gentle and modest, he was firm as a rock and true as steel. No department of church activity but received his sympathy and help. Generous with his means and strength, his qualities of heart and mind made him universally loved and respected by the entire membership. Funeral services were held in the Congregational church, Springfield, on last Sunday at three o'clock. The pastor, who delivered a eulogy, speaking of the service rendered by Deacon Herrick as a soldier, citizen and clergyman, was assisted by the pastor of the Springfield church, Rev. Raymond A. Beardslee. The home church was represented by ten members, which number would have been larger had it not been winter. The burial was at Springfield.
