If not a native, for she did not move to Great Wakering from London until she was two years old, Mrs. Annie Hallums could certainly claim to have been a real part of the village in which she spent nearly the whole of her 73 years of life. She died on Friday week at her home, Koloon, Shoebury Road, Great Wakering, after about six months’ illness. She was a member of a large family, but after the birth of two children she became a widow at an early age. Then 46 years ago she married Mr. Alfred William Hallums, a blacksmith at the War Department, and by him bore another ten children, all but one of whom are alive to-day. She was a keen church worker, and took an active interest in the Mothers’ Union, who together with every branch of life in the village were represented in the congregation at the funeral on Thursday. She leaves eleven children, one of whom is in China, and 13 grandchildren. The funeral was conducted by Rev. F. W. J. Reynolds. The chief mourners were: Mr. and Mrs. S. Belton, Mr. and Mrs. C. Smith, Mr. and Mrs. A. Marven, Mr. and Mrs. A. J. Hallums, Mr. R. Hallums, Miss H. Hallums, Mr. and Mrs. D. Hallums, Mr. and Mrs. W. Hallums, Mr. F. Hallums, and Mr. and Mrs. J. Bowyer (children and their wives and husbands), Mr. and Mrs. C. Wyatt (brother and sister-in-law), Mrs. C. Everard and Mrs. Brazier (sisters), Mr. K. Hallums and Miss N. Belton (grandchildren). Among the many wreaths from friends and relatives were those from the Mothers’ Union and the scholars and teachers of the Mission Hall. Messrs. A. Wiggins and Son were the undertakers.
