Wife of Joab Chambers; Dau of Rebecca Barnes and John B. Howard
Sister Alice Chambers, wife of Bro. Joab Chambers, passed to be forever with her Lord, at the late home in the north part of Cainsville Friday July 12, 1913.
Her illness reaches back over weary months, her suffering at times was intense, all of which she bore with Christian resignaton and fortitude.
She was a humble follower of the Blessed Master in Whom she had trusted for many years. She was a faithful wife, a loving mother, and a kind neighbor and a true friend. She was the embodiment of good nature and cheer. She will be greatly missed by her loved ones and by all who knew her best. Her ailment was dropsy and kindred diseases, incident to advancing age. All was done that was possible to stay the hand of death, but to no avail, and she passed to be with Jesus, her Savior.
She had been a member of the Baptist chrch for more than a score of years, (no data being at hand at this moment). Her funeral was conducted by the writer at the late home, on Saturday July 13, at 9 o'clock a.m. assisted by Bro. Boyd, the text being, "I go to prepare a place for you", the theme being, Heaven a place, and not a state or condition, it being indicated as a home of fixed habitation.
The parting look taken and the flower covered casket taken to the Zoar Cemetery and laid beside the dear ones gone before, there to rest. May the Holy One be very near all that are bereft in this death is my prayer, for Jesus sake.
Their brother, J. H. Burrows
