Lucretia May Wyscaver was born in Jewel County, Kansas, May 16, 1874. She was married to Lafayett Burns, July 6, 1889. To this union was born three children; one son and two daughters. One daughter died when two years old. The son resides in Oregon, and because of the distance was unable to be at the funeral. The daughter, Mrs. Walter Shaw resides in Franklin, Nebraska.
In 1909, June 6, the deceased was united in marriage to Richard Tindall. She has made ber home with her daughter for several years, and it was from this home that she went to the Hospital in Cambridge, Nebraska, just one week ago. It was during the days of her intense suffering that she repented of her sins and accepted Christ as her Savior. And as a result of her faith in Christ she passed away in peace July 14.1916. The Methodist pastor, Rev. Thompson, being absent it was decided to have Rev. A. G. Burress, of Cambridge, an old friend of Rev. Thompson, who visited her in the last hours, preach the sermon. The deceased urged continually that the living among her friends and relatives accept Christ while they are strong. She "firmly stated to Mrs. Fager, "I haven't any doubt but it took just this 'to bring me into the Kingdom." She declared to her daughter that she saw beautiful things. She deeply regretted that she put off salvation, and said she forgave all who have wronged her and that she wanted to be forgiven. Her passing away was peaceful. God is good and his grace will cover the sins of a life time if true repentance is evident!
She leaves to mourn her departure one son, one daughter, her
mother, one grandson, three sisters and five brothers.
