HOXIE SENTINEL, Hoxie, Sheridan Co., KS—Microfilm—10 Jun 1915—Obituary.—Sadie Augusta Morton was born October 27, 1882, in Phillips County, Kansas, and died in Colorado City, Colorado, June 2, 1915, aged 32 years, 7 months and 3 days. She was married to Oscar J. Charles, December 8, 1907, Dresden, Kansas. To this union was born one child, Lura Adeline. She leaves to mourn her departure a husband and daughter, father and mother, six brothers and three sisters and a host of friends. She was converted early in life and united with the Baptist church at Phillipsburg, Kansas, in 1896, and lived and died firmly in her faith in Christ. She had many friends, and was loved by all who knew her. Her place both in church and society will be greatly missed, as well as in the home of her loved ones. Mrs. Charles first discovered the seed of the dreaded white plague in her system about two years ago. In April, a year ago, Mr. Charles took her to Colorado in hopes of her finding relief. She improved and thought herself well enough to return with Mr. Charles to Kansas to help bear her share of the work in the wheat harvest. However it developed to be only temporary relief, and about two months ago they returned to Colorado, but the disease had developed, so that no relief could be found. All was done that was in human power to do. Both his and her parents were present and ministered to her needs to the end, but to no avail, as the disease had gradually sapped her vitality, and at last her life. The funeral services were conducted by the pastor of the Baptist church in Colorado City, who paid high tribute to her Christian character, especially of her dying desire for the salvation of her kindred and friends. She died with a desire to meet them all in a grand reunion in Heaven, and by her Christian character and dying message, she being dead yet speaketh.
"She sleeps in the arms of Jesus,
She's gone but a step before,
We'll meet in glad reunion,
When this fitful life is o'er."
The remains were brought back to Lucerne for Burial. Before she was laid to rest, Rev. H. W. Wolf, pastor of the M. E. church at Jennings, conducted a short funeral service at the home of one of her brothers near Lucerne, after which interment was made in the Lucerne cemetery. It is sad to lose our loved ones by death, but it is a comfort to know that they died in the Christian faith, and we have hopes of meeting them again in a better world, where there is no more sorrow, pain, sickness or death,
"When we asunder part,
It gives us inward pain;
But we shall still be joined in heart,
And hope to meet again."
