~~~Mortuary Notice/Obituary~~~
~Mrs. Narcissa F. Sapp, wife of Theophilas Sapp, died at their own happy home near Columbus, on the 23d of May 1862, being the 49th year of her natural life and the 31st of her Christian experience. She left only three children, never having lost one; and upon each of these she left, deep imprinted, the salutary __?__ of a great motherly heart. Upon them, she constantly wrote, by her own exalted place, the practical less of "There's nothing true but heaven." Her religion was the embodying of principle and practice, wisely, in her every day devotions. With more religion than many possessed, there was less variation in its constant flow. Frequently, however, there came on gentle swells in the river, the streams whereof make glad the city of God. These she did not regard as new acquisitions in religion, like too many do, but only as attestations of a fountain of divine life welling up from within. She was a Christian of lovely mien one of the happy few concerning whom the better you know them the more you believe in them. She was one, the silent influences of whose piety steals out upon near companions, but unbidden; but unheard, until it permeates all kind and loving hearts about it. The presence of such a wife and mother in a family is most conserving their influence is the leaven of life. As might be expected our good Sister Sapp died in the verge of heaven. A life so bright with every Christian virtue closed like a calm day, during which nothing has occurred to mar it beauty, and as evening its bright light melts away in magnificent glory. To see a Christian wife and mother calmly and contentedly embark at the brink of the river of death, on the promise of divine guardianship, full of faith, saying, " earth hath no sorrows that heaven cannot heal," is a sight delightfully sublime. So passed away Narcissa F. Sapp. "Her children shall arise and call her blessed. Her husband also, and he praiseth her."
