Death: Sep. 3, 1885

The Otsego Farmer
September 1885

In Middlefield, Sept 3, Mrs. OPHELIA E. UPHAM, aged 30 years.
Mrs. Upham was the daughter of the late T. G. Manchester. At the age of eleven she gave her heart to Jesus and became a member of the Westville Baptist church. Her Christian character was gentle, truthful and marked by fidelity to Christ's church. The church is bereaved in her death.
As a friend, a daughter, a sister, a wife and mother, her life was sweetened and beautified by the spirit of Christ. She is removed as a tree cut down in the fullness of its follage and fruit, whose shade and fruitage seem greatly needed here. A great sufferer for many weeks she was calm and happy "having a desire to depart and be with Christ". A fond husband and three little ones are left in the home ___.
"And life is a little sweeter that she lived,
And all she loved were more sacred for her sake,
And death is all the brighter that she died,
And heaven is all the happier that she is there."
