Who seeks for heaven alone to save his soul. May keep the path but will not reach the goal. While he who walks in love may wander far. Yet God will bring them where the blessed are.
Her many friends gathered Saturday, Dec. 17, to pay their last tribute. Rev. Preston officiated and a quarette of Beaverton high school pupils also gave words of comfort in the three beautiful songs they rendered. Mrs. Shaffer had been in poor health for a number of years, but only during the last year was she unable to do her own work. She was much beloved by all who knew her, especially the children who always found in her a sympathic friend. Gladwin County Record dated 12-22/1921 Column - 2 Page - 4
