Louisa Creamer Rayl, daughter of John and Sarah J. Creamer, was born near Rainsville, Indiana, January, 8, 1874 and departed this life at her home near Pine Village, Indiana, December, 15, 1915.
Louisa grew to womanhood in the neighborhood of her birth. Hers was a disposition that made friends. Being a member of a large family, she readily adjusted herself to the ways of others and constantly sought companionship. At no time, however, were anymore near and dear to her than the members of her family. " A merry heart," that " doeth good like medicine," made her the center of her father's home.
When she became a woman it was not the will of Providence that her life should become one of ease and happiness.
She was forced to become self-reliant in an unsympathetic world. Even when disappointments and sorrows that might well have darkened the lives of many crowded about her, she stood ready to cheer and help others. She devoted a great part of her life to nursing the sick back to life and to easing the suffering of the dying.
On the 9th of last June she was married to James Rayl. In the midst of her newfound happiness and of the joy of living in her own home, she was stricken with illness. Her natural bravery of spirit kept her from letting even her dearest friends know of her sufferings and her death came as a complete shock to all. She was alone with her husband at the time and his dear name was the last word spoken by her dying lips.
She leaves to mourn her loss, her husband, James Rayl, six sisters: Mrs. Eva Fortier of Williamsport, Mrs. Elizabeth Hewitt of Rainsville, Mrs. Mary Rescoe of Clyde, Kansas, Mrs. Abby Evertt of Oxford, Mrs. Jennie Simmerman of Rainwright, Canada, and Mrs. Laura Peal of Florida; one brother Augustus Creamer of Carbondale and many friends.
Many near and dear to her have before her. Among them are one sister, Mrs. Josephine Simmerman; three brothers George, Franklin and Ruley Creamer, and dearest of all, her only baby, a child by an early marriage.
Mrs. Rayl was a member of the church of Christ. Her religious belief was well set forth by the words she loved so well.
How joyful is the thought that lingers,
When loved ones cross death's sea,
That when our labors here are ended,
With them we'll ever be,
We'll never say goodbye in heaven,
We'll never say goodbye,
For in that land of joy and song,
We'll never say goodbye.
Funeral services were held at the Green Hill Church, Saturday, December, 18th at 11 am., Rev. Hole of Pine Village Christian Church officiating and interment was made in the Davis Cemetery near Green Hill.
