Death Of An Octogenarian

Mrs. Sarah E. FITCH (nee BARTLETT) was born March 15, 1813, in the town of Thomson, Geauga Co., O., and died at her home at Hazael, Apr. 10, 1893, aged 80 years and 25 days after a long and severe illness she bore
with motherly patience and Christian fortitude.

At the early age of 19 she became a christian and a member of the M. E. church, and to the end of life adorned the high and holy relationship by a beautiful and consistent life.

Deceased was the wife of Madison L. FITCH, one of the distinguished citizens of this place.

Being married to him in 1833, with whom she lived in sweet companionship until the day of her death.

Not only was she active in religious circles, but in social and literary as well. Her light shining and her influence wielded upon all with whom she came in contact.

The funeral rites were conducted by Rev. BROWN of the U. B. church, with a popular and characteristic discourse. A fit tribute to a memory so noble, grand and good. With tender and loving hands she was laid to rest in Bald Knobs Cemetery, April 12, by the side of those who had gone before.

She leaves a husband and six children, all of whom were present to console her and alleviate her sufferings, besides a host of other relatives and friends who mourn their loss.

But they sorrow not as those that have no hope.

They believe dying is only to wake in a brighter morning.

Dear friend, we will love thee still,
till we meet thee in that life where
there is no more death and where the
tears shall be those of joy.
Death is as illusion.
The empty cage is here,
The empty chair is here,
But the singer and occupant has gone.
She is not dead, but has entered one
of the upper chambers of our Father's Mansion.
