Malinda (Hodges) Fowler
30 March, 1899 Versailles Leader
The citizens of Glensted were wonderfully shocked Sunday morning when it was announced that Mrs. Malinda Fowler was dead. She was well and unusually happy on Saturday, conversing with her family and friends in a most congenial manner, but alas, at one o'clock that night she took a coughing spell; her neighbors were sent for, and shortly
after one arrived, Mrs. John Gerkin, she breathed her last, saying as she did so; "I want you all------." The sentence was never finished, and none but God knows what she aimed to say. Sister Malinda Hodges was born June 7th, 1834, and was married to Willis Fowler September 5th, 1858, and departed this life March 26th, 1899 in
the 65th year of her life. She was converted at an earlyage and joined the Baptist church, and lived a devoted Christian life until the end. She was a good neighbor, and was always found at their post. All, even the sinners, spoke well of Aunt Linda as she was called.
To this union there were five children four boys and one girl. Three of whom survive her, while one has preceded her to that better land. On Monday afternoon, March 27th, her funeral was preached at Mt. Carmel Church by the writer, to a large congregation of sorrowing
friends and relatives, after which, in the drifting snow, we laid her to rest. May the earth press lightly upon her, and the birds sing sweetly above her until the final consummation of all things. May God comfort and save the bereaved.
