RACHEL JANE BONAR

Rachel Jane Bonar was born in St. Marys on July 29, 1874 and passed away at Rising Sun, Cecil County, Maryland on November 26, 1972, having reached the age of 98 years 3 months and 27 days.

Mrs. Bonar was the only daughter of Jonathan and Patience Province Delong and was raised by her grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Jacob Delong following the death of her mother when she was but 18 months old. Mrs. Bonar early in life obeyed the Gospel and was the last surviving charter member of the Dewey Avenue Church of Christ. Her life was one of dedication to her Lord and Master and for some thirty years she was a Bible School teacher and her life has left its mark on the boys and girls who are now men and women of this community.

On November 23, 1898 she was united in marriage with Mont L. Bonar and this union lasted until Mr. Bonar’s death in 1950. To this union was born one child, Mrs. Ethel B. Hackney with whom Mrs. Bonar made her home in Rising Sun. In addition she is survived by one grandson, Samuel B. Hackney and one half-brother, Fred De long of Eureka, West Virginia.

In addition to her church work Mrs. Bonar turned her avocation of sewing into a vocation and her needle and her skill delighted the hearts of many of the boys in the Billsville section with their baseball uniforms; many of the early minstrel programs in St. Marys at the turn of the century boasted costumes made by Mrs. Bonar; many brides were made happier by her skill with their wedding clothes and the families of others were consoled with her patience in making the garments for the departed. Mrs. Bonar found time to be an active and 50 and 60 year member of the Woman’s Benefit Association and served for a time as an officer of the Pemberton Garden Club.

After moving from the St. Marys area she had the privilege of seeing the first active Church of Christ established in Cecil County, Maryland and was in faithful attendance until age and poor health confined her to the family home. One of her last lucid moments was trying to put the words of “Jesus Lover of My Soul” together and sing them. The churches of Christ in St. Marys and at Cobra, Maryland have been blessed by a faithful servant gone home to rest.

The funeral service was conducted by Evangelist Earl Stevens at Ruttencutter Funeral Home on Wednesday, Nov. 29 at 2:00 p.m. burial was in the I.O.O.F. cemetery.

            The car in which they were riding was suddenly met by a wall of water that caused the vehicle to stall.

            Boron, the twins and Howell jumped out of the car, but when Boron lost her footing and fell, she dropped the twins.

            She grabbed Kyle and held onto a log to stay afloat. She was unable to reach Kevin, who was swept away.
