Hattie Rebecca Copeland Bishop

After suffering for about four days Mrs. Hattie Rebecca Bishop, wife of Mr. H. C. Bishop, of Ehrhardt, departed this life for the eternal beyond on Wednesday morning, June 6th at 10:30 o'clock, and was buried at Mt. Pleasant Lutheran church on Thursday morning, June 7th at 10 o'clock, in the presence of a large crowd of sorrowing relatives and friends, who gathered to pay their last tribute of respect to the deceased. The funeral services were conducted by the Rev. D. B. Groseclose, of Fairfax, who for a number of years was her pastor. Mrs. Bishop was 58 years and eight months old, and had been in poor health for some time, but nothing of a serious nature until a few days before her death. At the age of 14, Mrs. Bishop united with the Mt. Pleasant Lutheran church of which she has been a faithful and consistent member, and was always trying to do and say things pleasing in the sight of her heavenly Father. Mrs. Bishop was a daughter of the late George Copeland and was married to Mr. Bishop in February, 1885, and since their marriage they have lived a happy and devoted life together and had known no sorrow until her death. She leaves a sorrowing husband and the following children: Mrs. L. R. Clayton, Misses Ruth and Minnie Bishop and Mr. Clyde Bishop, of Ehrhardt; Mrs. W. G. Hiers, of Lodge. Three grandchildren and one half-brother, Mr. J. F. Copeland, of Ehrhardt, and a host of frinds also survive her. The bereaved have the sympathy of this and other communities in this their sad hour, and we do earnestly pray that God's richest blessings may rest upon them in their sorrow, and guard and direct them in their future life; that they may some sweet day meet her in the beyond never to part any more. © The Herald, Bamberg, SC, 14 Jun 1917
