Waveland Independent, Waveland, Montgomery County, Indiana April 17, 1925

Mrs. Lou T. Bacon passed from among us Monday morning, April 6, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Lon Jenkins, at the age of 69 years, 2 months and 12 days. She was born in Metcalf County, Kentucky, January 24, 1856, to William and Cynthia Atterburn. She was of a family of eight children: five sisters and two brothers, who with the father and mother have preceded her in death except one sister who lives in Kentucky. On March 18, 1880 she was married to Andrew J. Bacon who died just five months ago. To them were born six children: five boys and one girl, four boys died in infancy. She came to Waveland in 1900 and has since resided in this vicinity. At the age of eighteen she united with the Oak Grove Baptist Church in Kentucky and later transfered her membership to the Baptist Church here. Mrs. Bacon was a good wife, mother, friend and neighbor. Her many friends always found her cheerful, contented disposition inspiring; her hand ever open to the needy and her heart full of sympathy for the suffering. She leaves to mourn her departure one son, Charles, who has always been a dutiful son; one daughter, Mrs. Vernie Jenkins, who was ever ready to do all she was able and more; a little granddaughter, Lorene Jenkins who knew so well the affection of a loving grandmother; a little nephew, Leroy Bacon, to whom she has always been a mother and who will ever cherish her memory for her loving care of him; and many other relatives and friends. Mrs. Bacon had been in poor health for a long time and seriously ill for eight weeks. Every thing that medical skill knew, and love and duty could do was done but to no avail. She met death with a calmness and resignation that would say to the world, "I have done what I could." Many sorrows were hers, many trials she endured patiently and the end of this woman's life makes the following lines very appropriate. (Poem in obit.) "Weep not that her toils are over, Weep not that her race is run. God grant that we may rest as calmly, When our work like hers is done. 'Til then we yield with gladness, Our mother to him to keep. And rejoice in the sweet assurance, He giveth his loved ones sleep.
