Sarah Ellen Lewis (nee Palmer) was born in Knox County,MO.,June 5,1850 and died in Grimm's Hospital at Kirksville,Oct. 28,1913,at the age of 63 years,4 month and 2 days.
She was united by marriage to George Lewis on April 7,1872.This union was blessed with 8 children,5 boys and 3 girls,all of whom are married except one.Sister Lewis obeyed her Savior about the year 1868 and was faithful to her Christian profession till the end came,at which time she expressed a wish that her children who are not now ready,would prepare to meet her in the world to come.
A good woman has left us,leaving many sorrowing friends and sisters who mingle their tears with the lonely husband and bereft children,but we sorrow not as those who have no hope.
The funeral services were conducted by J.R. Bush of the Church of Christ,at the family home 7 miles north of Stahl after which she was laid to rest in the Cox Cemetery.

We wish to give expression to our heartfelt thanks for the numerous acts of kindness and words of sympathy given us during the last sickness and death of our bereaved wife and mother.Such has assisted us much in bearing up under our great weight of sorrow.
