Chambers, Eleanor
Eleanor Chambers – Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – August 31, 1876 – Obituary Notice – Mrs. Eleanor, wife of Rev. Adam Chambers, died at her residence in Pueblo, August 15th, 1876. She was born in the year 1845, sixth month and 14th day. Her parents, both residents of Wales, were John and Mary Anne Phillips. While her parents were Calvinistic Methodist, yet her childhood up to age was more particularly under the instruction of the Episcopal church of England. About five years before her death she obtained a clear evidence of her acceptance with God and was able to claim Christ as her personal Savior. During all those five years she testified in spirit, in word and walk that she was redeemed from a life of sin and identified with all who loved the Lord Jesus Christ. Those who knew her best can witness to her earnest devotion to all the interests of Christianity. She was married to Rev. Adam Chambers, on the 2nd day of April 1874. Fourteen weeks before her death the lovely babe that brightened her home for two months was born. As a flower it bloomed, then faded to re-expand and bloom in the paradise of God forever. The painful and protracted affliction of Sister Chambers was endured with all that calm spirit of patience that bespoke a soul fully and sweetly resigned to the sovereign will of God. As a wife, she was affectionate, gentle and prudent. As a neighbor she was companionable, affable and sweet. In all these relations, she will be greatly missed. Her bereaved husband has the sympathy and prayers of all his Christian brethren and friends.
