                   This tribute was published in the Perth Courier.  On. Jan 17, the death took place at the home of Mrs. J.W. McClure on Colborne St., of Mrs. John Burnett.  The deceased, whose maiden name was Margaret Shaw, was born in Drummond township, eithy-seven years ago.  Her father, William Shaw was one of the first Scotch settlers in that neighborhood.  Some fifty-seven years ago she married John Burnett, who died twelve years before her.  Eight children were born to Mr and Mrs. Burnett, of who seven survive to mourn the loss of a loving Christian mother.  Ther are Mrs. McClure of Perth, Mrs. J.D. Dewar, George and William Burnett, all of Carman, Manitoba and Robert of Shorthoaks, Sask. and James of Luther, Montana.  There are fifteen grandchildren.  A brother and sister also remain, Mr. John Shaw of Drummond, and Mrs. Wm. Paul of Carleton Place.  The funeral service was conducted at the home of Mrs. McClure on Colborne St., at 1:30 p.m. Saturday by Mr Crossley, Brethern Evangelist.  Beautiful flowers adorned the casket.  Those from a distance who attended the funeral were:  Dr. Robertson and Mr. Chas. Robertson, nephews of the deceased, both of Ottawa;  Mr and Mrs. Paul of Carleton Place; and friends from Smiths Falls and Rideau Ferry.  The pallbearers were Messrs Robt. Brown, W.S. Robertson, Jas. Woods, A. Stewart, J. Moodie, and R. Livingstone.  The cortege proceeded to the C.P.R. station at two o'clock.  Robert Burnett accompanied the body to Carmen, Mnanitoba, where internment will take place on Tuesday, the 22nd.  Mrs. Burnett spent a long and useful life in unselfish service for others.  During the last years of her life, when she was in failing health, she showed to those around her a most beautiful example of Christian faith, patience and consideration for others.  Fond memories of her will long linger in the hearts of those who knew and loved her.
