Notes for Edesse Gallant:

Obituary:  Charlottetown Guardian (PEI), Monday, July 3, 1950: In Memoriam - Mrs. Edesse Peters - The residents of Howlan were saddened on Saturday, June 10th, when it became known that the angel of death had hovered over and claimed for its victim the soul of Mrs. Edesse Peters at the ripe age of 79 years and 7 months, widow of the late Mosie Peters, who predeceased her some 18 years ago.  Since his death she has always resided at the home with her stepson and his wife, Mr. and Mrs. Tenis Peters, who tenderly cared for her as a real mother unto the end.  The late Mrs. Peters was twice married.  Her first husband was the late Simon Gallant.  No children were born to her of either marriage.  About a year and a half ago the late Mrs. Peters suffered a slight stroke which weakened her so that she never left her room but was able to be up and sit in her chair until about last December when she became bedfast.  Mrs. Peters was never one to lament and was always cheerful and satisfied.  She will be sadly missed by all but more so in the home where she was so dearly loved.  During her illness she was frequently visited by her pastor, Rev. M. J. Rooney, who on Wednesday previous to her death anointed her and prepared her soul for its homeward journey.  Her funeral, which was largely attended, was held at St. Anthony's R.C. church of which she had been a lifelong and devoted member, on Monday with her pastor, Rev. M. J. Rooney officiating at Mass and grave.  Her pall-bearers were Fermin Perry, Joseph J. Peters, Alban D. Arsenault, Wm. Shield, Jerry Arsenault, and Arthur Richards.  She leaves to mourn her irreparable loss the following foster children: Tenis Peters, with whom she resided; Emmanuel Peters of West Brook; Mr. Peter Peters of Lawrence, Mass; Mrs. Julia Arsenault of Berlin, N.H.; Sylvang Gallant of Charlottetown, and Philip Gallant of Halifax, besides a large number of step-grandchildren.  Her beautiful casket was adorned with many Mass cards; also a pillow of flowers from the Peters family and a cross from Sylvang Gallant and his sons Hector and Louis.
