The Alexandria Post, Alexandria, Douglas County, Minnesota

DIED.

On Friday morning, the 24th inst., at the residence of her parents in Alexandria, of brain disease, Miss Sarepta Bondurant, aged 23 years 8 months. Funeral services at the house Sunday forenoon, conducted by Rev. S. Snyder and attended by a large concourse from village and country. >>>>>Burial in Kincaid [sic] Cemetery.<<<<<<<<

The deceased came with her parents to Douglas county at the age of eleven. When sixteen years old she joined the church and was constant in its service, living a beautiful example of christian graces and a life fruitful in good works, gathering stars for an immortal crown, till called so early to her blissful home. Her fidelity in Sunday-school won the love of her class and the approbation and highest appreciation of the officers of the school, and more—the commendation of the Great Teacher.

She was a kind and obedient daughter, a loving sister, an unfaltering friend, a true christian. The faithful and careful physician's skill, the ever untiring parental watchfulness, the ministrations of friends and brotherly love all combined to cheer and soothe and strengthen the waning life. Of the change which has come, she talked freely, and joyfully awaited its coming. When the hour was at hand, she called the members of the family to her, and one by one she bid them farewell, with many tender and loving words, gently committing them to the Savior's care, fondly entreating them to meet her in Heaven. Then she said that angels were waiting for her and Heaven was near. Thus peacefully from the bosom on the family her pur spirit passed to the waiting angels and to the bending Heaven.
