"The Roanoke Leader" - Wednesday, February 12, 1908:

OBITUARY FOR MRS. SARAH ANN BELCHER (Nee Stricklen).

Mrs. Sarah Ann Belcher (nee Stricklen) was born August 31, 1826; married Wm. Belcher May 9, 1844 and died Feb 2, 1908, lacking only a few months of being 82 years old. Her husband died about five years ago after a married life of about 59 years. There were born to them 9 children, 4 sons and 5 daughters. All the sons and 4 of thedaughter survive father and mother, one having died some years ago. There are numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Sister Belcher joined the Methodist Episcopal Church, South in 1840, and during all these 68 years had been a loyal and consistent member of the church, delighting in its services and cheerfully obedient to its laws. Except for something out of the ordinary, she was always in her accustomed place at church and we shall miss her presence on the Sabbaths to come. In her home she was kind and hospitable, delighting in the companionship of her friends and neighbors. As her pastor it has been my privilege to know her and enjoy her hospitality, and it was always pleasant to be in her company and in her home. It has been the custom of her children and relatives to have an annual reunion on her birthday, when all who were near enough assembled at the old home and enjoyed themselves in her companionship.
Upright in her life, kind to all, she enjoyed the respect and love of those who knew her. Now her life here is ended and she has entered into that fullnessf life that belongeth to the children of god. Blessed are the dead which die in the lord for their works do follow them. Mourned by her children and all who knew her, her mortal remains rest beside her husband, awaiting christ's coming to make up his jewels. Her children rise up and call her blessed.

Her Pastor, J.C. Francis.
