From the highest function of womans life, that of becoming a mother, she has been called home. She leaves a father and mother, a sister and brother, and a kind husband and their little daughter to mourn the loss of this noble woman, with a host of Relatives and friends who knew her, for to know her was to love her, the neighbors all say. She was a sunbeam all her life and we hope her good advice and pure intentions will be heeded and carried out by relatives and friends for that was the burden of her prayers, Let us not think of the bitterness of this untimely parting, but of "The thought how sweet again to meet As we look to a distant strand, Where heart meets heart and no more we part Who meet in that better land." The funeral was largely attended by her friends and relatives at the Christian church. Talks were made by the undersigned and Eld. Wesley Oldham, a personal friend of the family. Quincy Short.
