Coleman, Ida
Sister Ida Coleman, of Rocky Fork, Rutherford county, was the daughter of Mr. A. J. and Mrs. H. E. Fly, of Mt. Nebo, was born July 8, 1859, and died Feb. 22, 1890, aged 30 years, 7 months and 14 days. She was married to Mr. R. A. Coleman, of Rutherford county, Sep. 8, 1882, and after a brief and happy wedlock of 7 years, 5 months and 14 days, the earthly tie was severed. She obeyed the gospel during a series of meetings conducted by Bro. David Lipscomb, at Phillippi, Maury county, Oct. 2, 1878. Then she became and ever remained a true and faithful disciple of Christ. She was ever gentle, helpful, kind and thoughtful toward the sick and afflicted--ever ready and willing to administer to relieve their suffering, within her power. Her illness was brief and very excruciating, but she bore all patiently and realized that death was sure. She prayed fervently the third night prior to her exit, uttering beautiful, tender and comforting words, full of hope, and said she feared not to die, only regretted to leave her dear companion, and that she was dying all alone. She requested papa to carry her remains back to Maury county, her native home, and bury her in the yard of her girlhood, where she used to love so well to be; and carry her favorite flowers and plant them on her grave. Her request was granted.
Mrs. E. C. Timmons
Gospel Advocate, April 2, 1890, page 216.
