ANTHONY —In Auburn, N.Y. Friday Oct. 2, 1903, Almira, youngest daughter of David L. and Frances K. Anthony, aged 17 years, 6 months and 2 days.
FUNERAL OF MISS ANTHONY.
The funeral of the late Miss Almira Anthony was held Monday, October 5, at the family home, No. 41 Seward avenue, and was largely attended. A profusion of flowers told of the popularity of the deceased, whose demise was particularly sad. The services were conducted by Rev. Amos Naylor, pastor of the Second Baptist church.
George H. Madison, under whom Miss Anthony was a pupil, sang a bass solo, "Face to Face." A quartette composed of Miss Brinkernoff, Miss Tidd, W. W. Beatty and Mr. Madison sang two selections, "There is Never a Day So Dreary" and "Sometime We'll Understand."
The bearers were Edwin Parsons, and Burt, George and Arthur Anthony, the last three brothers of the deceased. The remains were taken to Moravia, her former home, this morning, where burial will be made.
AUBURN WEEKLY BULLETIN, TUESDAY, OCTOBER 6, 1903-8.
We shall meet, but we shall miss her. There will be one vacant chair, We shall linger to caress her; As we breathe our evening prayer.
Another loved friend and co-worker, Almira Anthony, has heard tbe summons to "come up higher," and just as her life was blossoming into fuller beauty, just as the bud of girlhood was blossoming into the beauty of womanhood, God called her to that home where there sball be no more sorrow no more pain, but only joy end gladness. We do not grieve for her, nay we can but be glad that for her, the weary days and nights of suffering, endured without a murmur, are over; but we grieve for ourselves that we must spend the lonely days unobserved by ber bright presence and loving words of help and sympathy. Hers was a short life as we count time, a little span of only 17 years, and yet how much of service for others was crowded into it. In the Sabbath school, in the Young Women's Christian Temperance union, in the choir, at the prison, where her voice was frequently heard, she was a power for good. Every life that touched hers was made better. She has left us the inspiration of a life work well done. "In some coming hour hour, we shall behold, her full blossomed in his cloudless day." But how we shall miss her is the time that intervenes.
