|Death: ||Jul. 17, 1897|
At 7 o'clock Saturday evening, July 17th, the spirit of Mrs. Jas. Dye (nee Cardwell) took its flight to that unknown "land beyond.." Mrs. Dye having been an invalid for years, and finally drifting into that much dreaded disease, consumption, had suffered until, we doubt not that death was a welcomed messenger. She united with the Christian church while quite young, and having lived a consistent Christian life, expressed a willingness to enter that bright world where "sickness, sorrow, pain and death are felt and feared no more." The funeral services were conducted at the Christian church at 9:30 o'clock Monday morning, by Rev. Russe Briney, pastor, after which the remains were interred in Providence cemetery. To mourn her departure she leaves a husband and sister, Mrs. M. T. Tharpe, besides a host of other relatives and friends..(Salvisa)

Maria Dye, wife of James M. Dye and daughter of James and Elize Cardwell, died at the home of her brother-in-law, Mortimer Tharpe, at Salvisa, Ky., on the evening of July 17, 1897.
She leaves a kind, devoted husband, a loving sister and a large number of relatives and friends to mourn her loss. In early life she confessed the Savior, united with the Christian church, and since that time has lived a consistent life.
For some time previous to the sickness which resulted in her death, she had a premonition that her change was about to take place, therefore, when the summons came, she was fully prepared to meet it.
She called her loved ones to her bed-side and told them she was going to Heaven and wanted them to meet her there.
What a great consolation it is to know that our dear Aunt died the death of a Christian, and that her immortal spirit has taken its flight to the bright and beautiful mansions of the blest, to live on throughout the never ending ages of eternity with Christ and the loved ones who have gone before.
We know that we can not see the bright face of our dear Aunt again in this world, but the blessed Scriptures assure us that if we are faithful until death, that we too shall be saved, then we shall meet her again around the throne of God to be separated no more forever, until then, dear aunt, farewell.
Dearest Aunt how we miss thee,
Our sad hearts can only tell.
But your work on earth is ended,
And you have gone home to dwell.
Dearest Aunt we are lonely,
When your face we see no more,
But we hope some day to meet you,
On that bright, eternal shore.
