Clinton MO - The following obituary was written by Mrs. Fewel before her death, which occurred on June 10th.
"My maiden name was Alice Grey Yates; was born April 8, 1858. Spent my childhood days and a great portion of my life 5 miles west of Calhoun. When only a little more than one year of age, I was left a fatherless child and reared and educated by a dutiful mother. I was married to Conner Orlando Fewel when I was twenty years of age. To this union six children were given, one having preceded me in death, Dec. 10, 1908. I cannot remember the exact date of my conversion, but there was a never to be forgotten time with me. When I had an indescribable desire to see the whole world on bended knees to Christ. About that time the scripture began to flow into my hungry soul like a fountain of living water, the first message being, "We know we have passed from death unto life because we love the brethren." This many years of my life was spent in studying His Holy Word, and in listening to and rejoicing in and enjoying the sweet solemn sound of the scripture read by one whose tongue was silenced in death January 25, 1899. We both joined the church at Sardis Bethlehem and were baptized by Elder N. M. Morris. That certainly was a great and notable day of the Lord to me. Tongue nor pen cannot describe how the truth burned into my heart whilst He led me as it were to the banqueting house and his banner over me was love. But like one of the Apostles, I find myself ever doing that which I would not do and leaving undone that which I ought to have done. Thus I have found I am not saved by my own righteousness, but by His grace. Looking to that eternal rest in the children, who have been so faithful to me in my widowhood days. Whither I have gone, I shall expect you to soon follow on. A kind farewell and love to my only sister, my neighbors, friends and dear old Sardis church. I hope everyone of you who look on my lifeless clay will realize how I have loved you and that Jesus is your friend. I have seen many dark and lonesome days since I last assembled with you and my heart is almost broken while I write, but though the storm grows furious, and the waves lash high, the time of my landing is drawing nigh, and Jesus will be there for me. When this is read I shall be done with the suffering and sorrows of this life. The dear Lord, with His shining angels will have met me in the air. I have already ascended on high with my dear ones. I am gathered home at last. Yes, I have gone on to that city fair to watch the shining portals and see you enter there. It is my request that my funeral be preached at Sardis church, using the text, "Christ is the end of law for righteousness to everyone that believes." Songs - "All hail the power of Jesus name," and "Home of the soul." Mrs. A. G. Fewel passed away Friday, at 8 p.m. June 10th, 1927, after over a year of suffering from a growth on the right shoulder joint. Interment at Sardis cemetery. Her dying statement was "His grace is sufficient for me."

Oct 2013, from volunteer photographer: I searched the entire cemetery and could not find the grave. There were many other Fewel stones in this cemetery, but we did not find one for Alice. The cemetery is in very poor, and overgrown condition, but we checked every stone we found.
