Ann Lindsey

By Geoff Dickinson

Transcription of Obituary In the Christian Messenger

MRS. ANN LINDSEY died October 7th, 1900. From a child she appears to have been religiously inclined. About nine years of age, in Flag Lane Primitive Methodist Chapel, Sunderland, it pleased the Lord, through the agency of the Primitive Methodist ministers, to bring her to the knowledge of the truth as it is in Jesus. She joined the society-class, of which she was a consistent member and a good worker for her Master, and was always at her class and the prayer-meeting. The people of God became her chosen companions, the House of God her resort, and she considered herself to be one of the least of the flock of Christ. The cause of God lay very near her heart, often raising the hymn, "Tis there I would always abide.’ In her class-meeting, as her light and love increased, so she sought to labour for the Lord. She was very useful in visiting the sick, not only the afflicted members, but those who were not members. Like Mary, she delighted to sit at the Master’s feet, not only to learn His will, but to do it with all her heart. And she remained here for forty years, afterwards removing to London, where she joined class and remained till death; and she led many souls to Jesus Christ. It may truly be said that she has finished the work the Lord gave her to do. For ever with the Lord.
