Batesville Guard (Batesville, Arkansas). Friday, May 8, 1914 Pg. 8.
On Saturday, May 9th, the Death Angel visited our home and took our beloved wife and mother, Mary C. Shirley. There is now a vacant chair in the home that once held the one most dear. A lonesome and broken-hearted husband, 7 children, one son and six daughters, are left to lourn her departure, and to fight life's battles without her kind advice, love and labors in behalf of those whom she loved. Always a loving mother, kind and tender hearted, a devoted Christian, being a member of the Baptist church for 29 years, she was loved by all who knew her.
She was born in Virginia on the 19th day of May, 1849, and moved to Arkansas at the age of 23.
May the Lord help us to emulate her life. We can't expect thee back, dear mother, but may we live so that we will meet thee in the home beyond. A few more days, or years, at most, and, dear mother, we will come to thee. What a meeting that will be!
May this lessen our sorrows and our troubles, for then we will part no more in heaven.
A. Shirley
