Christina Thoms Macdonald (1840–1915)

We deeply regret to record this morning the death of Mrs Macdonald, wife of Dr. Archibald Macdonald, sen. The deceased lady died early on Sunday morning, at an advanced age. She had been in ill-health for a long time past. She leaves a large family of sons and daughters, and a husband, for whom the sincerest sympathy is felt, to mourn the loss of a most affectionate wife and mother. The funeral, which was of a private character, took place yesterday.
