|Death: ||Oct. 25, 1902|
Henry County Local---October 31, 1902
Miss Della Black, died at the home of her cousin, Mrs. Fannie Smith, near Defoe, Saturday morning, October 25, (1902) of consumption.
As the summer passes away and the flowers die, so did this lovely young girl pass away; not as a flower to wither and die, but to live in a world beyond where there is no dying. One in speaking of her who had known her from childhood said, "It would be hard to paint a picture of the life of one so lovely as Della Black".
Her friends were without number, as could be quickly told from the crowd of young people passing in and out to see her. We express deep sympathy to the bereaved ones, but we would say to them to strive the harder for the world beyond, where there is no parting. She was a member of the Berea Church.
On Sunday afternoon her funeral was conducted by Rev. Wagoner, her pastor, after which she was laid to rest in the cemetery at Pleasureville, amidst sunshine and flowers, to await the resurrection morn. A large crowd of sorrowing relatives and friends followed her to the grave.
