forty one years one monthand ten days old For nine days she had been confined to her bed Suffering had left it rugged traces on her brow but approaching death held no terror on her She was aim efFectipi ate mother arda r t ever ready helpmate She leaves her husband three children and a host of friends to mourn her loss She was a member of the Baptist church at Oak Hill She seemed to be in the bloom of healthuntill some few days before her illness But where the sharp sickle of Satan which is death strikes Iso must it reap For the wages of sin is death her life was mown down by the mighty arm of Death her spirit ascended uplifted bv the varnal breezes and has entered the pearly portals of heaven Her seat is vacant in the church her voice is hushed in the family circle- Tis hard to break the tender cord When love has bound the heat Tis hard to speak the word Must we forever part Yet loved ones vere beckeuing her home and she has been escorted a cross the cold river of death apd has entered upon its blooming shores of sweet deliverance Weep not children for a mother who has so often directed you aright whose daily advice was always for the bet ter she has long been with you has long relicable friend but the Lord giveth he pan also taketh away And now she is gone yes gone she will not re turn but you can go to her for her peace is sealed her rest is sure within that
