Mrs. Louretta INMAN (nee) CORBIN was born March 24, 1874, died October 9, 1902.
Mrs. INMAN had not enjoyed good health for several months previous to her death, but was only confined to her room a few days. Her death was a great shock to her many friends and realtives, as her sickness was not considered serious until the day previous to her death. She suffered great agony during her last sickness, but it was borne with much patience. She retained her reason until the last moment of her life, and not a dark cloud intervened to obscure her pathway to the mansions which her Savior had gone to prepare for her. She was one of those "who had come out of great tribulation and washed her robes in the blood of the lamb." Mrs. INMAN had many friends, as was evidenced by the willingness of so many people who were so attentive and so anxious to do something to alleviate the awful suffering. She was a true, noble woman, faithfully discharging the duties of a wife, a mother, and a neighbor. She was always kind and good to everybody. If anyone did her a wrong she had a forgiving spirit, and was ready to forgive them were they to ask forgiveness.
The funeral took place at ASHCRAFT Chapel, Friday, October 10. Many friends and relatives were present to pay their tribute of respect to the deceased, and to comfort the sorrowing ones, and many beautiful flowers were placed on the casket as tokens of esteem for her. Rev. CRANE, her pastor, in most feeling and touching words, paid a glowing tribute to her, and the last sad rites were performed in sad solemnity. He said he had been at her home and had conversed with her a number of times, and never talked with anyone that was any more wiling to converse on the subject of their soul's salvation that was sister INMAN. She said she had erred in life, but was living a Christian now, and was fully trusting in Jesus as her Savior, this her friends all believe. She leaves a husband, father, mother, brothers, sisters, and a host of friends who deeply sympathize with the bereaved; but, the saddest of all is that a sweet little boy of two summers, who is too young to realize the awful solemnity of death, is left to pass through life without the care of a mother.
