Thanks to Sherry W. for the obituary from the Lexington Observer & Reporter, May 20, 1865, p 3 c 5

On the 27th day of April 1865, Mrs. Sallie B., relict of Major D. M. Woolfolk, dec'd.

The deceased was a passenger on board the ill-fated Sultana, which exploded on the Mississippi river a few miles above Memphis, and was one of the victims of the disaster. Her remains were recovered, and her bereaved relatives have the sad consolation of receiving them unmarred by the violence of the explosion, and of venting their sorry in the last sad offices in which affection may pay its tribute to the dead.

A large circle of attached friends will sympathize with the bereaved mourners in the sudden stroke which has removed one so tenderly beloved. In her were admirably blended the graces which charm the social circle, and the virtues which cheer the home. Her genial manners inspired a cordiality which, ripened into esteem, as more intimate acquaintance revealed the qualities of mind and heart which endeared her to all. Though death came in a manner so unexpected and startling, they who mourn are sustained by the hope that the stroke found her not unprepared, and that their loss is her eternal gain. A member of the Christian Church since early girlhood, her consistent walk illustrated her profession, and crowned her life with the fruits of the faith which cheered and guided her in prosperity, and afforded strength and consolation in affliction.

"After life's fitful fever, she sleeps well."
