Big Sandy News, March 12, 1926, Death of Mrs. Wm Bays
On March 1, 1926, the death angel visited the home of Wm R. Bays and took from that home his loved companion, Julia (Jordan) Bays.
She was 66 years, 4 months and 29 days old, having been born October 2, 1859. Lagrippe and Bright's disease caused her death.
She was the mother of seven children all of whom are living, as follows, Mrs. L.J. Lawson, Holden, W. Va., Mrs. R. D. Hall, Huntington W. Va., Mrs. John Fields, Rush, Ky., Mrs. J. L. Fannin, Ashland, Ky., Mrs. Sanford Scott, Catlettsburg, Ky., Younger Bays, Jattie, Ky., and R.D. Bays, Baltimore, Md.
All of the above children were at her bedside during her illness and death except the youngest, R. D., having been called away a few days previous to her death.
She professed faith in Christ and united with the Christian church when a young woman and lived a consistent Christian life.
Mother Bays (as she was often called) was a good neighbor, an indulgent mother, a faithful wife, and a good Christian woman.
All was done for her that loving hands could do but God saw fit in His wisdom to take her. All who knew her loved her, but God loved her best.
There is a vacant place in the home that can never be filled, and there is no one like mother. But to the loved ones be as David of old "She cannot come back to you, but you can go to her."
She leaves to mourn their loss, the above named children, one sister, Mrs. James Ratcliff of Fallsburg, Ky., five brothers, thirty-three grandchildren, four great grandchildren and many relatives and a host of friends.
The funeral was conducted at the home by Rev. John Thomas and Rev. R.D. Hall, after which the body was taken to Glenwood cemetery for interment, overlooking the old school ground to await the Resurrection morn.
