Funeral Article for Dorcas Millgate in the Millard County Progress 23 Dec 1938
Poem written in honor of Dorcus Millgate
We know how honest she has been
And how industrious,
This woman, who's known toil and care
And bitter loneliness.
A quiet stranger in our midst,
Who's lived the best she knew,
Though left with three small children and
Just everything to do.
She bravely bore her heavy load
And none heard her complain.
She's worked and toiled inside and out,
In sun and snow and rain.
Her church and children were her joy,
Her life, her everything.
She loved all Nature, Summer, Fall
And best of all the Spring.
And when her last, long illness came
She bore with fortitude
The anguish, pain and suffering,
She felt but gratitude.
When Death held out his quiet arms
To fold her to his breast.
And she could sink down fathoms deep
In cool and blessed rest.
She passed with honor and success
Life's long and grueling test.
And from the fullness of her heart
She knew that God knows best.
