Death: Dec. 10, 1921

Mrs. Katie Barker, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Thos. Allen and wife of H.M. Barker, was born Sept. 30 1885 and departed this life Dec. 10 1921, aged 36 years 2 month and 10 days.

She gave her heart and her life to Savior when she was quite young and united with the M. E. Church of Broughton, where she lived a faithful Christian life until uniting with the Broughton Baptist Church some five years ago and then lived a devoted Christian life until called to her reward.

Katie as she was familiarly known was loved by all who knew her and though she has been affected for many months she was never heard to complain or grumble once, but was patient until the very last moment of her life.

She leaves to mourn their loss a husband, four children, Irene, Roe, and Fae, and dear little Ferdinand, two step children, Mr. Edward Barker of Broughton and Mrs. Clarissa Gross of Harrisburg, whom she loved as her own. She also leaves her mother, two sisters, Mrs. Myrtle Pennington and Mrs. Mabel Cook of Broughton.

Her father and two little ones have preceded her to the great beyond and were waiting at the portals to welcome her. Besides the immediate family, she leaves a host of relatives and friends who mourn her departure.

Beyond the weeping and the tears, beyond the shadows and the fears, She now shall rest with loved ones who have gone before. On that bright celestial shore; to sing God's praise for ever more, redeemed and blest.

Funeral services were held Sunday at eleven o'clock at Broughton Baptist church and burial followed at the Hickory Hill cemetery- The Rev. Ralph Daily officiating.
