Death: May 27, 1842

Consort of B. Andrew
Daughter of Francis & Sarah Reed

Pittsburgh Christian Advocate.

Died, on the 27th May, 1842, in Middlebourn, Tyler co., Va., Mrs. PHEBE COLEMAN, wife of Rev. Andrew Coleman of the Pittsburgh Conference of the M. E. Church. Sister Coleman was born in Harrison County, Va. Her parents were members of the M. E. Church, and raised their daughter in the fear of the Lord. She sought and found the Lord, in the remission of sins, in the days of her youth, and was steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord to the day of her death. She possessed a quiet spirit, and was a dutiful child, an affectionate wife, and tender mother. Some months since she took cold, which settled on her lungs, and terminated in inflammation. Her sufferings were great, but were born with Christian fortitude. She never complained. During her afflictions the Lord blessed her with unshaken confidence in his promises and grace, and with much religious comfort. Sometime before her death she told her husband that I should preach her funeral sermon from the triumphant words of St. Paul to Timothy, found recorded in his second Epistle, 4th chap. and 6-8 verses. "For I am now ready to be offered up, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought a good fight; I have finished my course; I have kept the faith. Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord the righteous Judge shall give me at that day; and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing. Her closing scene was full victory over death. She has left an affectionate husband to mourn his loss, and a little son, aged two years, to suffer the want of a mother's attention to his daily wants. Her infant babe survived her but a short time. Sister Coleman was in the bloom of life, having not completed the 27th year of her age. She is gone - a holy woman - an itinerant preacher's wife. How much Privation she has escaped - how much glory has she gained - let me die the death of the righteous.
