"The Sabbath Recorder", Vol 37, No 40, p 5, Oct. 6, 1881.
In Tiskilwa, Ill., Sept 17, 1881, of consumption, Ella, wife of Ansel Crouch, aged 28 years. Married Nov. 4th 1870 Henry, Marshall County, Illinois.
She made a profession of religion when about eighteen years of age, and united with the Southampton Seventh-day Baptist Church, continuing a member until the angel of death called her to come up higher.
She longed to go, but in the family casket were four jewels it was hard to leave. She had polished, cherished, and cared for them so tenderly here that she would fain lay them as a glad offering at her Savior's feet.
Scarlet fever came into the little band and bore Artie, the second child, aged 9 years, home one day in advance of his loving mother.
The burden of the little sufferer's prayer during his four days' illness was that his mother might live until Sabbath-day, so he could go to heaven with her.
She lived until 2 o'clock Sabbath morning. His song of welcome may have been the first that greeted her as she stepped on the golden shore of eternity. A. H.
