Hines, Lawrence Hines 2nd obit

Spirit of Democracy, Woodsfield, Ohio, dated June 19, 1929

Unwelcome at all times, death is an especially untoward visitor when summoning capable and promising young manhood at the threshold of a bright future, a life of honor and usefulness, a character built upon the foundation of righteousness, integrity, industry and love. Though wounded in heart and mourning constantly, the absence of a beloved son, husband and brother, the mother, wife and brothers, find comfort in the knowledge and assurance that immortality is given the loving heart and faithful soul and that for such, death is only transition.

The life of Lawrence Hines began in the home of his parents, John A. and Elizabeth Hines near Lewisville on August 17, 1904. And on Monday, May 27, 1929 his death occurred at the home of his mother at Lewisville. His father has preceded him to the eternal rest.

He was united in marriage to Miss Audra L. Young on August 15, 1928.

Lawrence received religious instructions at St. Peter’s Evangelical church at Lewisville and was confirmed on March 31, 1918. Fine and clean in heart and mind, he was faithful to the faith he professed and lived consistently worthy.

Lawrence graduated from the Lewisville High School in the spring of 1922. He then began working in Chain Stores and after diligent and faithful service became a manager of an A.&P. store in Steubenville, when sickness forced him to give up his work and make a fight to regain his health.

He bore his sickness with patience and never complained no matter how severe the pain. For the last few days he suffered untold agony from a complication of diseases, but the end came so swiftly that his many friends were shocked to hear that God had claimed him for his own.

To the bereaved ones we can only say, “God is an ever present help and strength in times of trouble,” and although we do not understand now, why such things happen sometime we’ll meet him face to face, then we’ll understand.

The magnificent floral offerings from various organizations of which his family were affiliated, from various fraternal organizations, of which he was a member and from friends attested his popularity.

The funeral services were conducted at the home of his mother on Wednesday, May 29th, Rev. Brueske officiating, assisted by fellow-members of Jr. O.U.A.M.

He leaves to mourn his departure, his wife, Audra; his mother, Mrs. Elizabeth Hines, and two brothers, Earl L. and Homer A. of Martins Ferry, Ohio, besides a host of relatives and friends.

Out to the hill-crest they carried him—out where so many loves and hopes lie buried, and there under the sunshine of a glorious afternoon they laid of him all that was mortal; but far beyond, his feet were on the hilltops of God and the brightness of that blessed abode was made brighter by his presence.

Summer winds will come and go and winter’s blasts will sweep and swirl; moons will wax and wane, but the recollections of the life he lived will ever be ours
