After several months illness of consumption, Mrs. Anna E., wife of Mr. William Burton, breathed her life out peacefully at 4 A.M. Saturday morning. Naturally a good and true woman, she enhanced her usefulness on earth by early giving her heart to the Lord and joining the Presbyterian church, of which she remained a faithful member through life, and death found her ready for the summons. Entirely conscious of her condition she arranged all her earthly affairs and spoke with a calm and peaceful confidence of the life which is to come. Besides her husband and two step children, to whom she was devotedly attached, she leaves three little boys of her own, almost too young to realize the most terrible misfortune that can befall a child, the loss of a tender and loving mother, and may He watch over and comfort them all. An unusually large number of friends gathered at her late home at 11 o'clock Sunday, at which hour Rev. A.S. Moffett preached a most appropriate funeral discourse and then the remains were followed to Buffalo cemetery and laid tenderly away. Truly has a good woman been taken from us and the community deplores with the family and friends, a loss which will be felt by all with whom she was thrown.
