The Springs Valley Herald (August 21, 1919) reported "Jeanette Olive (Connell) Scarlett, daughter of George and Farrabee Witcher Connell was born near Shoals, Ind., July 18, 1882, and died at her home in West Baden, Ind., July 30, 1919, age 37 years, 12 days. She was married to Elmer Scarlett Dec. 2, 1901 [Note: the marriage index shows 1900], to which union were born three children, Eva, 14 years, Baby Marie, 16 months, who together with the husband survive her, and an infant who died at birth. Her father and brothers, Fred, Sam, Floren, Orville and Clyde, and sisters, Emma Lane and Dessa Marshall survive her. During the summer of 1909 Mrs. Scarlett united with the First Baptist Church of West Baden, under the pastorate of Rev. C. A. Wade, later transferring her membership to Paoli Baptist Church, upon removing her home to Paoli, and the light of her faith never dimmed, she had long weeks of suffering (14 weeks in bed) and the knowledge that she was not to recover, came to her own mind. She called to her bedside her friend, Mrs. Ed. Nuss (who had long been like a sister to her) and explained in detail the plans she wished carried out in the funeral. She wanted to live, particularly for her family - they needed her so - but expressed continually her readiness to die, if it be the Lord's Will. Her last audible words were: 'Dear Precious Lord.' Jeannie was rather a self-conscious woman, not showy in her life, but quick in sympathy, loyal and earnest, full of live for the beautiful, beautiful herself, she loved the best, in material and spiritual things. Only a girl, in years, but who shall estimate or measure the scope of her life in influence upon the stricken home from which she has flown like the eagle, mounting higher and higher until, all at once we realized she is not with us, she has gone to be with God. To realize the fullness of his promises, leaving behind her the wonderful legacies of wifehood and motherhood, beautifully lived - her own life made beautiful by suffering, until the perfume therefrom pervades the atmosphere wherein her life was lived, and she has but gone on, out of sight, for a time, as if into another room, with Him face to face."
