"The Sabbath Recorder", Vol 58, No 15, p 239, Apr. 14, 1902.

Frances Langworthy Clarke, wife of Edson D. Clarke, and daughter of Daniel F. and Annis Lamphere Langworthy, was born in Alfred, N. Y., March 16, 1856, and died in Andover, N. Y., March 30, 1902.

She was united in marriage with Mr. Clarke Nov. 30, 1881, thus creating an attractive and hospitable Christian home during their more than twenty years.

In early life she accepted Christ as her Saviour with a devout and sincere faith, and on April 1, 1871, was baptized by Pastor L. R. Swinney into the fellowship of the 2d Seventh-day Baptist church of Alfred, and it so happened that the day of her funeral and burial was the thirty-first anniversary of her burial with Christ in Christian baptism. In 1871 she transferred her membership to the Seventh-day Baptist church of Andover, at the time of its organization, becoming one of its charter members. She was always its steadfast friend and worthy representative.

Considerate and kindly in spirit, upright in Christian life and example, her unselfish efforts to promote the good of others rendered her life not only a living witness for Christ, but an active and continual influence for good among those with whom she associated from day to day.

A widowed mother, two brothers and one sister survive her and, with many other kindred and friends, mourn her loss as a true and faithful friend. But none are left to mourn without hope, since for her to live was Christ and for her to die is gain. S. B.
