Mrs. Lurana CALVERT was born in Beech Creek Township, near Newark, Greene County, September 28, 1846, and departed this life at her home in Bloomfield, September 19, 1913, aged sixty-six years, eleven months and twenty-one days. Her parents were John L. and Mary A. {TURLEY} BRYAN. She had six sisters and one brother, but only two of them are living. They are Tilman BRYAN, of Paragon, and Mrs. John O. CALVERT, of Calvertville. She was married to George W. CALVERT Mary 12, 1865, and to them were born seven sons and two daughters. The surviving children are Addison E., Linton; Willard E., John N. and Emerson G., Bloomfield; Os CALVERT, Shelburn, and Mrs. William KILLINGER and Mrs. William OWEN, of Bloomfield. Two sons died in infancy. There are also twenty-two grandchildren and one great-grandchild surviving her. She spent the greater part of her life in Bloomfield. Her husband died August 12, 1891. She was stricken with apoplexy one day after last Easter, but sufficiently recovered to be up again; however, about four weeks ago she was taken worse and on September 12 she had the second stroke of apoplexy from the effects of which she never rallied. Forty-five years ago she united with the Baptist Church at Concord, but when the family moved to Bloomfield she joined the Baptist church ere and remained a consistent member thereof till her death. She was interested in the church and rejoiced in its success. Although clinging to Jesus and trusting Him to save her since coming into the church, last summer she was greatly revived, refreshed and illuminated by the Lord and her chief conversation was about dealings of God with her soul. She expressed to others the transparency of her faith, the transforming power of Christ and the peace and joy afforded her in committing her ways unto God. She so lived as to make many friends. A good neighbor, faithful friend and most devoted mother was she. In her home-going her loved ones and friends believe she is safe, happy and at rest. Her children feel that they served mother well and faithfully and this is a source of comfort to them. They were all at her bedside when she went away. The funeral services were conducted from her lat residence in Bloomfield last Sunday afternoon at 1:30 o’clock by Elder J. A. SPENCER, assisted by Rev. J. T. WILLIAMS, past of the Baptist Church at Worthington, after which the remains were buried in Grandview Cemetery.
