Mrs. E. W. Coker Passes to Beyond:
On Saturday morning January 19th. an angel touched the tired eyes of Mrs. Mary Emmaline Coker and they slept, the worn and emaciated body rested while her gentle spirit winged its way to the regions of eternal peace and quietude. She fell asleep like a child weary and worn.
Great nature, the common mother holds her tenderly to her bosom. Never was the silver cord more gently loosed. Never was the golden bowl more softly broken.
She looked upon death as release from weariness and care.
As Miss Mary Emmaline Winchester, she was born at Monroe, North Carolina October 30, 1846, and at the age of five years moved to Baker County, Georgia with her parents. Returning to North Carolina in the fall of 1868 she was married the following January to Walter J. Bramlett. To this union were born two sons and two daughters as follows: Mrs. A. L. Brooks of Decatur, Ga., Mrs. J.R. Cochran, Homer, Ga., E.W. Bramlett of Gainesville, Ga. and J.D. Bramlett of Ashland, Ga.
Moving to Ga. with her husband and family in the year 1873 she settled at the place where her husband died in the year 1875 and where she lived fifty-five years. On May 19th. 1879 she was married to Mr. E.W. Coker and to them were born two sons and two daughters, M.W. and H.L. Coker of Ashland, Ga., Mrs. J.H. Parks, Ashland, Ga. and Mrs. A.M. Gillespie of Carnesville, Ga.
How grand indeed it is to live a life of splendor like as a mighty meteor, dashing through the Heavenly reaches, and dazzling all who come within the range of its ethereal brightness. But grander still and far more noble it is to live a life covering more than four-fifths of a century of consecreation to those you love, of loyal service to those dependent upon you, and of truth and honesty to those who trust in you. Such was the life of Mrs. Coker. How satisfying such a a life must surely be.
In the home she was tender-hearted and kind, in the community she was obliging and considerate and in the church she was true to the religion she embraced and true to the God who had sustained her through the morning and noontide of life, and she was within the shadows of evening when the summons came.
When we remember these things we are impressed with the fact that she has not lived in vain.
