"The Gospel Messenger", Volume 13, No. 11 – November 1891:

Mandy A. Denney

She was born in Chambers County, Ala., September 16, 1854, and was married to George Denney December 1882, and joined the Primitive Baptist Church at Macedonia and was baptized by Elder A. B. Whatley in September 1875, after which she lived an orderly member, always rejoicing in the welfare of the church. She had many trials in affliction, which she bore with great patience. She often said if it was the Lord's will to take her from this world she would gladly go. She gave birth to two children, a son and daughter, of which both died in infancy, which seemed more than she could bear at the time; but she humbly said, the Lord knows best. When it pleased the Lord to take her away it was very sudden. She was subject to severe spells of headache, and on the 4th of April 1891, she had a severe spell and her husband called a physician in and he inserted morphine in her neck, and she began to get easy and she insisted on her husband and sisters lying down as she thought she could rest, so they did so, and at twelve o'clock her husband asked her how she felt; she told him she was some easier, but some time between then and daylight she passed away with a smile on her face. She died at her home at West Point Cotton Mills, Ga., and her remains were carried back to Macedonia and laid in the tomb there to await the resurrection. She was a faithful and loving wife, a devoted sister. The greatest joy we ever witnessed her seeing was when her husband joined the church. She leaves a husband and six sisters and several nephews and nieces to mourn their loss, but our loss is her eternal gain. He has taken but His own to dwell with Him in a fairer, brighter home. Had we the power we would not call her back to this world again. We must look to God for comfort, and He can heal our sorrows and tell of a joyful reunion in heaven.
