OLD LANGWARRIN (now Pearcedale)

Mrs. Pearce's name, together with those of her late husband and surviving children, will always be honorably associated with Pearcedale. Indeed, the Pearce family have not only given the township its name, but have been responsible for its development and welfare. It affords me the greatest pleasure, and I deem it an honor to be given this opportunity of bearing public testimony to the high esteem in which your guest of the evening is held in our little community, and also by a wide circle of friends outside. Our friend has known the deepest sorrow, having lost her husband and given a son to the Empire. But in spite of these great trials has shown a brave front. It may be truly said of Mrs. Pearce that she has been a model wife and a good mother and a useful citizen
