Inscription: Give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her own works praise her in the gates.
Mrs Angeline Lord, wife of Mr Wm E Lord, died at her home in this place on Wednesday last, at about eleven o'clock, in the 69th year of her age. Mrs Lord was a daughter of Stephen and Mary Redden of Kent county, Delaware, and was born near Farmington, in 1837. Three sisters and one brother of the family now survive. Mrs Elizabeth Trazzarre; of Farmington, Mrs Almira Deakyne, of Clayton; and Mrs Mary A Powell, of Kansas City, and Mr John W Redden, of Ridgely. She was united in marriage in January, 1859, and soon thereafter with her husband removed to Tuckahoe Neck. They lived there until nine years ago, and there by industry and frugality accumulated a competence, and then, retiring from the activities of the farm, located in Denton, and here, amid their many friends, were spending the serene years of life's most pleasant autumn. With the husband are the following children: Mrs J Howard Griffin, of Hoboken, N.J.; Mrs George A Fisher, of Brooklyn, N.Y.; Miss Annie Lord, Mr William T Lord, and Mr Homer Lord, of Philadelphia; and Mr Walter H Lord, of Ridgely. The funeral service was conducted at the home yesterday afternoon, Rev D M Dibble, of the Methodist Protestant Church, of which Mrs Lord was a member, officiating. Interment took place at Denton Cemetery. Rev W J D Lucas, a former pastor of the family, pays the departed the following tribute:
"She was from early years a member of the church, and whether in relation of wife and mother, or neighbor and friend, she lived an exemplary life. Having thus lived, as she neared the bound where life lays its burden down, she bore her affliction with Christian fortitude, and the end, which was peace, but meant an exchange of the earthly for that 'building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.' Her life, usually cheery, was never happier than when trying to make happy the lives of others, and the writer, who knew and often appreciated this characteristic trait, gratifyingly makes reference in this affectionate tribute to her memory. She has vanished from our midst, but, like righteous Abel, she "yet speaketh" - speaketh in the unselfed life, and recollections of her kindly ministries will wait long in the hearts of some for whom she sought to make the journey of the journer a way of pleasantness.
'We gather up with pious care, what happy saints have left behind;
Their writings in our memory bear their sayings on our faithful mind.
Their works which traced them to the skies for patterns to ourselves we take,
And dearly love, and highly prize, the mantle for the wearer's sake.'"
