Florence Echo, daughter of C. Jay and Elzina Hissong Wert, was born in Edon, Ohio, Sept. 4th, 1889, where she spent her brief life and where she graduated from the High School with the class of 1908.
She was a member of the M.E. Church, having been converted and baptized in 1903 during the pastorate of T.J. Carey. She was faithful to the church of her choice, to the Epworth League of which she was a member and to the organized Teacher's Training class, of which she is a charter member.
She bore her affliction, which dates back to February last, without complaining, and with Christian grace battled with the grim monster till Thursday when she gave up and said "Don't weep for me, it is all right".
Friday evening at 7 o'clock her spirit left it's earthly house and winged it's way out into the realms, beyond all earthly vision. Had she lived another day she would have been twenty years old on this mundane sphere.
She has offered her last prayer and sung her last song and her voice is hushed in death; but she still lives in the hearts of friends and her friends were all who knew her.
There remain, father, mother, brother and grandfather with drooping hearts, who should have our prayers and sympathy in this awful affliction.
Funeral services were held from the M.E. Church, Sunday afternoon, conducted by T.J. Carey of Wharton, O., assisted by the Pastor, Rev. Yeagle. Text taken from Isaiah 38-1. Burial occurred at Edon Cemetery.
