South Australian Memoirs and Obituaries
Eunice Pyman
Relict of the late Thomas Pyman, chemist and druggist, Witham, Essex departed this life September 2nd 1877, aged 85 years, at Braxted Farm in the Kooringa circuit. [2] Mrs Pyman, in company with her late husband, came to this colony in the year 1853, and settled at Strathalbyn where Mr. Pyman died in 1858. Mrs. Pyman from that time till the day of her death, resided with her son-in-law and daughter Mr. and Mrs. George Thompson. Previous to her coming to this colony she had been a member of the Church of England, but shortly after her arrival here she united with the Primitive Methodists and continued a member to the end of her earthly existence. Mrs. Pyman was a devoted servant of God, her genially affable manners caused all who knew her to greatly respect her. The infirmities of old age sometimes make people gloomy, irritable or reserved; not so with Mrs. Pyman. We always found her thankful, joyous and hopeful. Her kindness amongst the children, and towards the visitors at her home will not easily be forgotten by those who witnessed it.
She laboured well in the cause of Christ, especially for the finances of the church. With the ardour and almost the activity of middle age rather than that of an octogenarian, she worked for the many bazaars, and other movements which were floated to assist the church funds. Probably there are few individuals who have personally done more for church finances than our departed sister. She often expressed her thankfulness to God for His goodness to her in old age. She was not demonstrative but her hope was firmly grounded in Christ. Death found her ready; her lamp trimmed and burning. For about a week she gradually sank into the arms of death. The evening of life with her had come, her work was done and she laid her body down to rest, with the family circle gathered around her bed. As gentle and peaceable as the setting sun; as quietly as dies a wave along the shore, her happy spirit passed from death to life.
