Mrs. James Woodyard Passes Away.
At six o’clock yesterday evening Mrs. James Woodyard passed away at her home at Brentsville in her forty-third year. Mrs. Woodyard, who was a victim of tuberculosis, was Miss Millie [Mildred Virginia] Tyler before her marriage. She has resided at Brentsville all her life, and is well known in that community.
Mrs. Woodyard is survived by her husband and eleven children. The children are Rozier, Benjamin, James, Harvey, Peter, Paul, Daniel, Alice, Susie, Catherine and Mrs. Lillie Keys. She leaves no brothers or sisters.
Funeral services will be conducted at the Brentsville Baptist church, of which the deceased was a member, by Dr. H. L. Quarles to-morrow afternoon at one o’clock. Interment will be made in Valley View Cemetery.

In the death of Millie, beloved wife of James R. Woodyard, who departed this life at Brentsville, on June 6, he loses a faithful and loving wife, her children, a most unselfish and devoted mother, and the community, a most good and useful woman. The high esteem in which she was held was attested by the large congregation that assembled in “The Old Stone Church At Brentsville” to do her reverence. A most appropriate and forceful sermon was delivered by Dr. Quarles, of Manassas, from Rev. 14-13. Her body is sweetly resting in Valley View Cemetery, awaiting the Resurrection morn.
The deceased was married 26 years ago in the “Union Church” at Brentsville, her native village, by the saintly and beloved Rev. B. P. Dulin, and many remember the young and blushing bride, just entering womanhood. Though the mother of fourteen children, she retained to the last her youthful beauty. She was a woman of strong mentality, and much force of character. Though strong in her prejudices, she was never known to speak ill of anyone, and faithfully followed the right, “as God enabled her to see the right.” Her untiring attentions, even to the determent [detriment? deferment?] of her own domestic affairs, through many long weary months upon the mother of the writer proved her Christian worth, and are still most gratefully remembered. Her faith in her Savior sustained here through long months of pain and agony, and when the last moment came there was no fear, no terror, she quietly fell asleep — “Like one who wraps the drapery of his couch about him, and lies down to pleasant dreams.” M. H. B.
