Fallen Asleep

Asleep in Jesus! Peaceful rest,

Whose making is supremely blest!

No fear, no woe, shall dim that hour

That manifest’s the Saviour’s power.

During the quiet stillness of last Sabbat morning between seven and eight o’clock, after a long and painful illness, Louisa R. Guthrie passed from the clasp of loving friends to meet those on the other side. She faded as the flower before the chilling blast of autumn, and Sunday morning the silver chord was loosened, and without a struggle the soul went out to its eternal destiny.

Now loving hands are preparing her lifeless form for the grave. Mother Guthrie was in the 79th year of her age. The immediate cause of her death was paralysis. She had been a consistent member of the M.E. church since early childhood and was always a loving, kind and patient christian mother.

Thus has passed from among us one whom to now was to honor and esteem. The god she did will live after her in the memory of those who knew her best. Her most endearing moments will be enshrined within the hearts of her family and neighbors, whose children will point to her example of disinterested kindness and good will.

The sympathy of all who knew her cluster around the daughters now so sadly bereft of mother, and it is their hope that they may be comforted by the memory of the years wherein they were blessed with the society and help of her who has gone before them to that {illegible} whence no traveler returns.
