PASSING AWAY OF FRANCIS GLEN CROSSLEY
On Saturday morning, January 1st, at the mystic hour when night yields to day, the patient loving spirit of Francis Glen Crossley winged its flight from earth's dark night to realms of eternal day. Although the watchers at her bedside grieved that one so gentle should linger no longer in the walks of men, they also rejoiced because that lengthened breath is not the sweetest gift God sends his people, but that sometimes the sable pall of death conceals the fairest boon, His love can send.
Her last days were full of intense suffering, long drawn out and death came as a joyous relief.
Emily Frances Glen was born in Georgia, July 11, 1854. She was married to L. V. Crossley in 1877. To this union were born six children. Only two of whom survived, one is Roy Crossley of Ladonia, the other Leslie Crossley of Sublett community near our city. She is also survived by her husband, L. V. Crossley, six grandchildren, Francesbelle Crossley, Robert Crossley of Ladonia, Dorthea, Paul and Myrtle Hood of Arlington, and Fred G. Young of Dallas; one great-grandchild Glen Young, also of Dallas. Mrs. Crossley was united with the Baptist church early in life and lived a true Christian up to the day of her death. She moved here with her family a number of years ago, and has made a host of friends here who proved their friendship by their untiring effort to do something to lessen her suffering, and to help her loved ones bear their sorrow in this their hour of bereavement and by their beautiful floral offerings sent as a token of love.
The family were all here to attend the funeral which was held at the family residence near Arlington at 3 o'clock Saturday evening at 3 o'clock Saturday evening by Rev. S. M. Bennett, a long time friend of the family. Interment followed in Arlington cemetery.
"After the burden and heat of the day
The stary calm of night
After the rough and toilsome way,
Asleep in a robe of white."
A LOVED ONE.
