Obituary
Unidentified Newsclipping - 1895
BERRY.--Emeline, wife of Major Berry, was born in 183O, and died at West Creek, New Jersey, March 23, 1895. She early in life gave her heart to God and joined the Methodist Episcopal church, and filled her place there until the Master said, "It is enough." Her spiritual life was strong, nourished by a constant attendance at the means of grace. She was a loyal Methodist, and was able to defend the church of her choice. For many years she taught one of the Bible classes in the Sabbath school, and to her belonged the unique honor of having had as scholars nearly all the present lady teachers of the school. She was especially the preacher's friend, and her thoughtful kindness was shown in various ways. She identified herself with almost every local movement for the blessing of the town. She was as full of work as Martha, but was saved from distraction by cultivating the devotional spirit of Mary. For nine years she was a constant sufferer, but possesed her soul in patience and exercised many a silent ministry which is not recorded on earth. The church here is poorer since her life closed, but still rich in the example which she left. The funeral services were participated in by the Rev. J. H. Magee and Rev. J. S. Surtees, former pastors.
