Miss H. Belle Cannon, youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Stephen B. Cannon, was born 16 Oct 1869 and died 28 April 1890, aged 20 years. A fair and fragile flower, she had been tenderly nourished by loving hearts and full well she repaid the care bestowed, but love and hope and skill were equally unavailing. About 10 Feb she was attacked with La Grippe and that with the hereditary weakness of heart and lungs resulted in quick consumption. Her's was a particularly cheerful temperament, happiness consisting in making others happy, so her bright smile was a magnet, drawing all hearts to her and during her illness the ruling passion of her life was well illustrated, for there was no word or thought of repining while, loving all and anxious to live for them she was ready to go, if such was the heavenly Father's will. Her work in society, in Sunday School and as a member of the choir had been always done as a glad offering of the talents entrusted to her and well had she used them.
