Moorefield - For Last Week
The news reached the writer last night after nine o'clock that Mrs. Tom Beall, of near Antioch Church, was dead. It was only yesterday afternoon I heard that she had revived a little and there was some hopes of her recovery. Mrs. Beall was a good Christian and loved by all who knew her. She will be sadly missed in her home, and community. Mr. Beall, you and your children be resigned to God's will for He has only taken her spirit to that Beautiful Home of which we read of in the Bible. May you follow her Christian example and it will not be long at the longest until you can meet your dear wife and mamma on that beautiful shore where sickness nor trouble ever come and sad partings are no more. The writer extends sympathy to the bereaved ones.

In Loving Memory.
Emma Wooddy Beall died of pneumonia May 15, 1910, after an illness of two weeks. Her sufferings were patiently and uncomplaingly born and though she felt premonition of death, she expressed no fear for she knew in whom she had trusted.
She was buried at Antioch Church. Dr. W. C. Bledsoe officiating, assisted by Revs. Holliday and Crawford.
Emma Louiza Wooddy was born Oct. 31, 1853, baptized in 1866 by Rev. John Bledsoe. In Dec. 1873 she was united in marriage to T. F. Beall. She leaves a husband and eight children, two brothers, one sisters, beside a host of other relatives and many friends to mourn her loss.
Of Mrs. Beall it can truly be said that "none knew her, but to love her, nor named her, but to praise." She was a true and loyal friend, one of the kindness neighbors, a loving wife and mother.
Though quiet and reserved in manners, she was a model of patience and sweetness in the home and elsewhere.
As the violet is known by its fragrance so the perfume from loving deeds done for others will cling to her memory. Poor stricken husband and children do not grieve as those without hope. She has only "gone before" to join the babe who long ago went away to be with the angels and their pure spirit will "watch and wait at Heavenly gate" until in "God's good time" the broken family circle will be reunited.
"Lord, it is best, I must I will believe"
"Thy will be done." but oh, if I could see,
Show me the way that I may cease to grieve,
Unblind me that I may the more trust Thee!
Show me the why I pray in blind despair.
And sometimes in His love He draws the veil,
And shows such boundless tender wisdom there
That "shamed I cry, forgive" and doubtings fail. - A. M. W.
