We have a cutting taken from a magazine after her death which reads:
“Mrs. Oram, the beloved wife of J.S. Oram, who is one of our managing committee, died New Year’s evening January 1st 1890. In the death of Mrs. Oram the community in which she lived and was known will miss her very much. Mrs. Oram had the combined qualities of making herself agreeable to those whom she met, whether stranger or friend. As a Christian worker among young men, Mrs. Oram’s personal work in the after meetings, and as other opportunities presented themselves, will stand as an example, though she has gone before to beckon them on. She will be watching and waiting as they will go home, one by one, we can only say: ‘The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh. Blessed be the name of the Lord'”.
