She had been suffering about twenty-six years with rheumatism. She had been confined to her bed for about twelve years. She was always cheerful and never complained and ever had kind words and good advise to give her loved ones. She was a member of the Primative Baptist Church at this place for many years though unable to attend church she was ever prayerful and showed by her every day life that she was a christian in the true sense of the word. She died in the full triumph of the christian faith and passed away peacefully and calmly, leaving the assurance that death was only a relief from suffering. The funeral was held at this place on Friday 2:00 p.m. conducted by the pastor, Rev. A. Gregory after which the body was laid to rest in the grave yard here. The grave was covered with flowers showing the respect and esteem in which she was held by those who knew her.
