She was of a cheerful disposition, always making the best of everything, a true, faithful wife and a loving mother. The night was never so dark or the road too long to deter her from going to her children if they were sick or in trouble. She was a great sufferer for a number of years but she bore it all patiently without a murmur. Besides her husband and children, she leaves 2 sisters and a host of friends to mourn the loss of a faithful friend. Funeral services were held from the Fairplains church Feb. 5, 1907. The floral tributes were appropriate in design and beautifully arranged and everything connected with the funeral bespoken the high respect felt for the deceased by the people among whom she had so long lived. Though dead, she speaketh."
