Obituary
Mrs. Almeta W. Ballard (nee Stegar) was born in Pike county, Ga., May 1, 1859, and died in Fayette county, Ga., April 12, 1892. Having known the deceased from infancy I am prepared to say that her life was, indeed, beautiful to behold. In early life she was taught the truths of God's word. From a child she loved the Sabbath school and often she has gone with the writer on the Sabbath to the house of God that she might learn of the way of life. The precious truths instilled into her young mind then were to her a source of comfort, even in the dying hour. At the age of 12 years she joined the M.E. church South, and remained a consistent member until the day of her death. Living, she adorned the principles of the doctrines of Christ; dying she leaves behind her, as a legacy to her loved ones, the influence of a consecrated life. Yea, she was a sweet-spirited Christian, a devoted wife, an affectionate mother, a dutiful child and a loving sister. She has gone from us; we shall see her face no more this side of the River; but while we mourn her departure, she rejoices with unspeakable joy and full of glory. May the God of all grace comfort the bereaved husband and five children two of whom were only a few hours old at the death of the mother.
