Lydia Patton Lewis 1818-1882:
Died: March 7, 1882, at the residence of their son-in-law, William Riner--Mrs. Lydia Lewis, relict of James Lewis aged 63 years, 5 months and 6 days. Disease: Hemorrhage of the lungs and general debility. Funeral occasion improved by Elder Allen Ives to sympathizing relatives and friends, from words of her own selection, found in Rev. 14:13---"Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord." Interred in the Baker Cemetery.
Thus "one by one we are passing away." May we all remember the night of death draws near, that we also may be prepared, as was our mother who has only gone before.

Dearest mother, thou has left us
And thy loss we deeply feel
But 'tis God that hath bereft us,
He can all our sorrows heal.
