Ann Anderson and Samuel E Johnston

Today I photographed this stone. It has the following text:


in fond

remembrance of

Ann Anderson

wife of

Samuel E Johnston

who died at Dovecot, Romano

the 26th Dec 1876

aged 53 years

exemplar as a wife

devoted as a mother

dutiful as a daughter

beloved as a sister

faithful as a friend

Also the above Samuel E. Johnston

who died at the Inch, Liberton

4th Aug 1908, aged 85 years.

It did make me wonder what I could mean to be called Examplar as a Wife? What does it take to achieve this?!
