Sallie Fannie Burford Bock

Birth: Dec. 21, 1867
Death: Dec. 19, 1887

Our entire community mourns the seeming untimely death of MRS. SALLIE BOCK, (nee Burford,) which occurred at their home in Weimar December 19th, 6 a.m.., after a brief illness of one week. But one brief year has passed since she stood beside her bereaved husband his happy bride. A long life of pleasure and prosperity seemed dawning on them, but O, how soon the lovely flower droops its head, and dies. She lacked but two days having reached here twentieth birthday; and by this strange Providence, a lovely babe is left motherless, a feeble mother is bereft of her child, her young companion is brokenhearted, and her brothers and sisters, with a large circle of friends, feel that their loss is irreparable. The sorrow of this home is only relieved by the fragrance of her Christian life. Several years ago she gave her heart to Christ, and her hand to the Church, and now o'er the darkness of the grave is the rainbow promise, "Even so them also that sleep in Jesus, will God bring with Him." A large circle of sympathizing friends followed the remains to its last resting place, in the family graveyard at Osage, where, after appropriate ceremonies, it was deposited by the side of her father and friends, to await the resurrection of the just. May the Lord graciously comfort the bereaved, and sustain them in this trying hour.
