Mrs. Della Blankenship, daughter of Bro. and Sister Garvin Brewster, was born in Cleveland Co.,Arkansas June 11, 1876, and was most happily married to Dr. W. H. Blankenship November 18, 1895.Soon after their marriage they settled at Linwood, Jefferson Co., where on November 8, 1897,that pure sweet life went back to the God who gave it. Della was converted and joined the church when 12 years of age and from then until death claimed her as a victim she was all the church could wish or expect. No word of criticism of her Christian life was ever uttered, but on the contrary, her life was so consistent as in every way to be worthy of imitation. Her influence was remarkable for one so young. She leaves a sorely bereaved husband, two little babies,
parents, brother, sisters and scores of relatives and friends to mourn her going. But thanks to a wise and good Father, they know where she is and can go to her.
