From this world of pain and sorrow
To the land of peace and rest,
God has taken you, dear Mother,
Where you've found eternal rest.
Though your hand we cannot touch,
We will never lose sweet memories
Of the Mom we love so much.
God knew you were suffering
And the hill was hard to climb,
So he gently closed your eyelids
And whispered " Peace be thine.'
A happy home we once enjoyed,
How sweet the memories still;
No one know the silent heartaches
Only those who have lost, can tell
Of the grief we bear in silence
For our Mom we loved so well.

We've all know a lot of heart breaks,
Each different in many ways, it's true.
But none of us knew what heart break really was
Until the day that God took you.
We just didn't think we could bear it,
How we dreaded that day to come,
But the Lord was there beside us
To comfort and bless each one.
You have many friends, Honey, who loved you
And with a family such as ours
With love proven beyond belief
By the tremendous display of flowers.
If there is a crown in God's heaven
For the sister who was "greatest' in every way,
We won't have to look when you get there;
You'll be shining in your array.
By her sisters, Jean, Glenda, and Inez.

Obituary
a beloved mother has been called to dwell in one of the many mansions prepared for those who love the Lord. There she walks in sweet communion with him whom she hath loved and served and there she awaits the coming of loved ones to whom she said farewell.
Mary Elizabeth (Lindley) Fullen was born in the vicinity of Lost River, Paoli township, Sept 23, 1846, died at Paoli, Indiana, dec 16, 1919, aged 75 years 2 months and 23 days. She was the daughter of Henry and Jane H. Lindley. Her mother passed away when mary Elizabeth was about two years old, giving her child into care of her Aunt sarah Lindley, and she grew to womanhood in the home of her grandfather, Owen Lindley, near Lost River in Orleans township. All her life was spent in the vicinity where she was born and raised, with the exception of the last five years during which time she lived in Paoli. On November 4, 1868 she was married to John Fulle, who departed this life about twelve years ago. To them eleven children were born, all living except one daughter who was called away when about two years of age. Those living are Susan J. Dillion, of Chicago; Florence T. Mitchell, of Bedford, Indiana, amanda Elrod of Orleans township; Effie Isom, of Bloomington, Indiana, amy scarritt, of Pensacola, Florida; Arthur Fullen, of Lost River; Alpha McIntosh, Paoli; Mrs. Ella Lindley and Ralph and Harry Fullen, the last three at Paoli.
In her girlhood the mother of these children united with the M.E. Church at wesley Chapel, near Orangeville, where she retained her membership and paid her quarterage until the time of her death. During the past few years she has not been physically able to attend public worship, but her heart has been with the church and she loved to see the Lord's work prosper. About two years ago she suffered severe injuries in an accident from which she never fully recovered and which probaly caused her death. In recent months her hearing had failed so completely that friends had to communicate with her in writing; but her eyesight was especially good and she enjoyed reading or doing handwork. The last work of her hands was knitting mittens for her grandchildren, who she loved dearly. A faithful and loving mother is gone to rest missed in the home where she was tenderly cared for by those she loved and missed by those who are gathered here to pay a last tribute. But only for a little while earth is but a camping ground ere long we pitch our tents in the great beyond where loved ones are joined together throughout eternity.
a short funeral service was held at the home of the deceased at 10:30 a.M. on Thursday Dec 18, 1919, after which the body was born to Union Church in Orleans township. Here in the presence of the many friends with whom it was her pleasure to walk in life and amid the scenes she had known and loved so well the last sad rites were paid to this sainted mother. Mrs. asher sang that beautiful selection, "In the valley of the shadow," after which rev. John Asher, of the Paoli M.E. Church delivered a very able, appropriate and comforting funeral oration. The remains were then placed in the silent tomb beside the companion with whom she walked so many years, there to await the call of Him who doeth all things well.
Those attending the funeral from a distance, aside from the members of the family before mentioned were Mr. Frank Dillion and Miss addie Dillion, of Louisville; R.P. Gabbert and wife of St. Louis and Charles Fullen, of Ft. Ritner.

OBITUARY
Sept 10, 1953
There is always a feeling of sadness and of sorrow when a friend or a loved one departs from the home; and greater is the sorrow when the time f return is not known, or there becomes a knowledge that this loved one will not return to us in the life taht we have known. And of this father, brother and friend today, the last is true-he has now entered into a new home-into a new life beyond the vale of death which changes mortal man into the life of an immortal, in that land where our loved ones may now live eternal.
So this afternoon we have come into the house of God with these sons and daughters, this brother and these sisters, these neighbors and friends, with a double duty-that of paying our last tribute of respect to him who has fallen.
FLOYD E. LINDLEY,
and by our presence here to extend our sympathy to these of his family who survive his passing.
Floyd was the only child born to the marriage of Sidney and Margaret Dickey Lindley, was born near Chambersburg Dec 17, 1881, and at the age of three months was bereft of a father's care and guidance. Later the mother became the wife of the late George W. Thomas, and from this union there survive today Mrs. Dwight Weeks of Paoli; Mrs. Ott Kellams and Mrs. Harry Ashley of Orleans; Mrs. Lettie Eckerty of Humo, ILL; and Joe Thomas of Indianapolis-these as half-sisters and brother, growing to manhood and womanhood as one family.
On August 28th, 1904 he was married to Miss Luticia Hall, and they became parents of ten children- one child dying in infancy, (Archie), and a son _Jimmy Lindley-paying the supreme sacrifice of life on the field of battle in World war II. surviving are Mrs. Ermel Hackney of Paoli; Sidney Lindley of Livonia; Kermit in the paternal home; Mrs. Robert Schamel, Mrs. Marie Murray, Mrs. Jane Rapp, and Roland Francis Lindley, all of New Albany; and Kenneth Lindley, now in the US Navy in the European area.
Most of his life was that of a farmer and farm laborer. For many years he was an employee of the Golden Ridge Orchards in his home vicinity, and for a time an employee of the Indiana State Highway Service. He was ever one of those who were contented "To live in a house by teh side of the road and always be a Friend to man';
he was ever kind to his family, a neighbor who loved to share his neighborliness, and a friend who ever loved the life of friendliness to all. He shared the life of sorrow of most every parent, in the death of the son in war, and with the loss of his companion soon afterward on february 9, 1946.
he was a loyal member of the War Dads chapter here, keeping in memory, and in honor of his own and other sons who had fallen in war. His fatal illness was of brief duration, being stricken on the morning of september 10, 1953, and his passing following but a few hours later in the same day at the age of 71 years, eight months, 23 days.
surviving of his immediate family other than those mentioned are 13 grandchildren and two great-grandchildren, with other more distant relatives, and the friends and neighbors of his life. May we who walkes with him through life feel that such a life is not lost. The soul has changed its abiding place to be with Him in that land where partings are no more, and where you, his children, and loved ones may meet him in that day which surely comes. And as you soon will stand about the open grave, and there bid farewell to father and brother, may you do so with this thought:
"You, and we, shall all stand at one gat
When life is ended. The ways the
are many wide,
and seldom are two ways the same.
The ways they are many; the end
it is one:
Side by side,
May we stand at the same Master's door
when our life is done."

IN MEMORIAM
In our meeting today, we gather to pay honor to the sixth of our dear boys-casualties of World War II for whom memorial or burial services have been given by our citizens. Today it is the youngest of these a mere lad for whom we gather with these grieving parents and family. as the youngest of a family of ten children Floyd and Lutisia Hall Lindley, residing a few miles east of this place. James Anthony Lindley
was born Nov 3, 1924, and grew to young manhood with parents, brothers; and sisters in the home. Though young in years, he grew older in experience of life during a war-torn world, as he learned from brothers already part of that service. and this spirit of love for brothers led him to readily accept the service when called, that he might not only assist those of his own family, but also have an integral part in bringing freedom and peace and enjoyment to suffering nations, whatever they may be.
Jimmy, as he was familiarly known, was much loved by his teachers during his school years. He won their confidence, because he never betrayed them; and it was his delight, and much satisfaction to his teachers, that he served as a junior police about the school for four years.
Certainly of a life so brief there are few activities that may set him apart from others. But in his service for his country, for the good he may have done, for the love and the esteem in which he was held by those who knew him, and with whom he brought to him that renown, never forgotten and always praised.
" He died at his post of duty"
He leaves today of his immediate family, the parents, the grandparents, Mr. and Mrs.. Joseph Hall of Paoli, four sisters, Mrs. Ermal Hackney of Paoli, Mrs. Golda Schamel and Mrs. Marie Murray of New Albany, and Mrs. Thomas Rapp, now in the home of her parents near here, while her husband serves his country in the armed forces. There are also four brothers, sidney and Kermit Lindley of New Albany; Kenneth Lindley with the U. S. Navy on the Atlantic and staff Sgt. Roland Lindley with Air Corps in England; and many near relatives and friends wherever acquaintances were made.
He became a member of the armed forces Aug 5, 1943, at Fort Harrison. Then he became a part of a new world-the anxiety of his parents grew as one by one the casualty messages came through. and after many anxious days he was missing Oct 25, in France and on Monday, Nov 13, came the tragic message of his death.
Jimmy lived the ordinary American life carefree, happy, and contented. He had the American courage of his forefathers, and was not afraid to die, if need be. Today he is one of those of whom the poet has written:
"How sleep the brave who sink to rest
By all their country's wishes blest!
When spring with dewy fingers cold
Returns to deck their hallowed mould.
she there shall dress a sweeter sod
Than fancy's feet have ever trod.
By fairy hands their knell is rung.
By forms unseen their dirge is sung;
Then Honor comes, a pilgrim gray
To bless the turf that wraps their clay;
And Freedom shall awhile repair
To dwell a weeping hermit there.
Pvt Lindley attended high school in Paoli before entering the service about a year ago. he was serving with the infantry.
From the school paper
so Jimmy Lindley lies buried in European soil. another gold star is on our service flag; another schoolmate has given his all for the free way of life. To most students and teachers who read these words will come a picture of a sturdy figure in a raincoat and that hat standing at the edge of the schoolgrounds directing traffic. Both students and motorists were handled with a firm, effective hand and a determination to keep those in his care safe.

Eulogy
Kenneth Lindley
April 18, 1990
In 1935 an (Paoli) Indiana farm boy left home for military service. "Looked at what I plowed, saw what was left, jumped down from that tractor and headed toward town to see the Navy recruiter" Kenny once kidded me.
In reality, his mid-western ambition would be later recognized when war broke out and Ken was promoted from enlisted to officer status. peacetime brought the purchase of a home in Melrose, (Mass) providing stability for his young family. therefore, the major inconveience of frequent military reassignment rested with him primarily. from then until his retirement in 1966, my adolescent memories are favored by his Christmas and Summer "leaves" at Faxon street.
home movies from antartica, a battery powered toy speedboat from Germany, back-yard cookouts, monopoly at his camp in hamilton, home made lasagna and meatball dinners on a school night Ken's trademark... Indiana pea soup made with a complete shoulder of ham. as years progressed and I was now the coming home on college semester break, army leave or vacation from the job, I always made time to "cut through the yards" to visit the Lindley's.
My father died 15 months ago and Kenny appeared at our backdoor with dinner for that evening. his eyes recorded the extent of the loss of a fouryt-four year friendship.
i returned from Utah last month and was told of his illness. I took the long way around the block by sidewalk that day to visit him. sitting together alone in his livingroom, he discussed his unfair prognosis quite frankly. He was not afraid to live, not afraid to speak his thoughts. Nor was he afraid to die. he passed away on Good Friday, a death day shared in elite company.
The other morning Mary (his wife) asked me to verify the ribbons on his uniform jacket with his service file. In it I found a sheet of folded yellow lined paper (in ken's writing) briefly outlining his 30 years of assignments. Only then, after 40 years of friendship, did I learn of his participation in the following:
-rescue of the entombed crew from the sunken submarine USS squalus -North atlantic convoy duty to Murmansk -Invasion of North africa -Invasion of Normandy _occupation of teh Philipines _action of truk, the Marshall Islands and Iwo jima ...and when the war was won, and the rest of the men were sent home, ken Lindley was assigned to the Occupation of Japan!
A well known wartime leader, after being critiqued on the bravery of Allied forces during the Normandy Invasion, was credited with remarking, "where do we get such men"?
Obviously, mr. churchill had never visited Paoli, Indiana!
I'm sharing these private memories with you today in farewell to a personal mentor. some people believe that a friend can be bought with gifts. i don't know. But I like to consider Kenny's friendship as a gift i gave myself.
I loved him living... and I love him still.
