Carrollton Democrat--October 1930


End Comes to Good Woman
Friday Morning After Much Suffering

The community was grieved but not shocked to learn that Mrs. Nancy W. Webster, nee Coleman, age 67 years, ill for the past two years and confined to her bed for the past nine weeks, had passed on to her great reward last Friday morning, October 10, at 10:45 o'clock.

Mrs. Webster was a woman of sterling character. Her many deeds of kindness and acts of charity had endeared her to everyone who knew her. Never having any children of her own, she nonetheless possessed a deep maternal instinct. She reared several orphan children, among them her beloved niece, Mrs. Lillian Osborn, who survives her.

Mrs. Webster affiliated with the Methodist church in her early youth and remained a loyal and conscientious member until her death. Mrs. Webster was twice married, her first husband having been Henry C. Minish, who died April 24, 1903. Her second husband, Zachariah Taylor Webster, whom she married in March 1907, preceded her to the grave six years ago.

She is survived by five sisters, Mrs. Will Williams of Carroll County; Mrs. Harry Grimes of Carrollton; Mrs. J. W. Jewell and Mrs. C. H. Dunn of Louisville, and Mrs. Will Jones of Anderson, Ind. She is also survived by five brothers Steven, John, and William Coleman of Louisville; Walter Coleman of Carrollton; Peter Coleman, and a stepson, Charles Webster, of Palestine, Ill. Mrs. Webster was predeceased by one brother, Daniel Coleman, one sister, Mrs. Lawson Williams, and her parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Alford Coleman of Carroll county.

Funeral services presided over by the Reverend Dr. Banks, were held at the home Sunday afternoon, after which the body was laid to rest in the local cemetery (I.O.O.F., Carrollton). A large crowd of sorrowing relatives and friends were in attendance.

Someone has said that: "When the light of life goes out, there's a new radiance in eternity which somehow relieves the darkness left behind".

Truly, that may be said of her. The memories of her life of Christian service shall be an inspiration to those left behind. Her rest is deserved.
