          She was converted and united with New Liberty Christian church when quite young and remained an active worker in this church so long as she remained in this neighborhood and when removed to the Saratoga neighborhood she continued these activities as opportunity afforded.
          She delighted in doing service for others and many learned to love her because of her genial spirit and loving disposition.
          For twelve weeks she had been a constant suffered, but with it all she retained a patient spirit and as the end drew near her trust in God deepened and before passing away she gave clear testimony of her peace with Him and a willingness to go out to meet Him.
          While sorrow fills our hearts we still trust that He that doeth all things well will give us to see that His ways are best and will bring us to himself and to meet with those we have loved on earth.
