Obituary: Mrs. Frank M. Bonner, 20 Feb 1891 - Smith County, TX

TEXAS CHRISTIAN ADVOCATE, March 26, 1891, p. 7, c. 5

BONNER.—Died, Mrs. Frank M. Bonner, at their pleasant home, Tyler, Texas, wife of Charles T. Bonner and daughter of Col. T. F. Murchison and wife, Mary R. Murchison, Athens, Texas. She was born July 4, 1863, and died February 20, 1891. She was reared by good, religious parents (Cumberland Presbyterian). When she joined the
church she united with the M. E. Church, South, as her husband was a member of that church; and well did she fill her place in the church as Christian, wife and mother. She visited the sick, administered to the comfort of the poor and destitute. The church has been made poorer by her death; but heaven made richer. She was the mother of two children, a son and a daughter. Charley, son, was born March 24, 1887, and died October 22, 1889. He was a sweet
child—mother's darling; was dedicated to God by Baptism in early infancy. Died and went to heaven in advance of his mother. I have no doubt but he met her on the other shore. Little Frankie M., daughter, was born January 31, 1891; three weeks old at mother's death; is spared to battle with the afflictions of earth, to comfort papa and relatives. The first time I ever met Frankie was the
morning after the marriage to my grandson. She saluted me with a kiss and the endearing appellation of grandpa, and said, "I love old people. I had a grandpa that was an old man." And well did she prove by her kind attentions to me that she loved old people. Farewell, my dear granddaughter, but not forever. We will meet again. I expected to have gone first, but you have gone a little
in advance. Thank God, if we do mourn, we mourn not as those who have no hope. Husband and relatives who survive her, remember we can't call her back to us, but we can go to her. Then let us meet her in the city of the New Jerusalem.
