Gone To Her Reward.
Mrs. R. G. Sirmon passed from life to her eternal reward from her home near Abbeville, on Saturday September 10th, 1921, at 2:30 o'clock p.m., aged 76 years, 2 months and 2 days. She had been ill for quite a while and the coming of the silent messenger was looked upon without fear. Relief from the pain and suffering of this world came in the natural course of time—she having rounded out the three score and ten years allotted mankind. She thought of the parting with loved ones as but temporary—looking for a blessed reunion in that home where pain and sorrow have no being. Mrs. Sirmon, whose maiden name was Mary J[ane]. Beasley, was born in Conneichu [sic, Conecuh] County, Alabama, 08 JUL 1845, and died at her home near Abbeville, on 10 SEP 1921. Before leaving her childhood home in Alabama, she was married to Mr. R. G. Sirmon, and shortly afterward (1867) they moved to this state, settling in Caldwell Parish, near Columbia. After a few years residence at that place they moved to Grant Parish and made their home near Colfax. Later on they settled near Boyce, where they made their home until they removed to this place in 1893. She leaves a husband, R. G. Sirmon and three sons, Tom, of Markham, Texas, B. E. of Gueydan, and Jewell, of Abbeville, and one daughter Mrs. S. D. Rowe, of Gueydan, to mourn her loss. Mrs. Sirmon was one of the most lovable of characters—true Christian in the fullest meaning of the word, and loved and respected by all who knew her. her many friends and acquaintances will remember her as one gifted with a true appreciation of the things of life—spreading happiness and joy throughout the long course of her life. Every one who came in contact with her felt the che[e]ring influence of her presence and now that Death's messenger has summoned her hence, we not only grieve at her loss, but feel a keen sense of regret that the world has so few like her. To the bereaved ones who have suffered the loss of the best and truest of friends, the Meridional extends its sincerest sympathies.
