Obituary: "Alice D. Garriott, deceased was born at Carrollton, in Carroll County, Ky., April 29, 1854. She was married to D.B. Garriott March 15th, 1882. To this union three children were born, viz: Mrs. Carrie Ratliff, of Stroud, Oklahoma, Mrs. Addie Davis, of Chandler, Oklahoma, and John Allen Garriott of Stroud, Oklahoma. Deceased came to Stroud with her husband March 6th, 1906, where they lived, until her gentle spirit went home to be with God, on the evening of May 8th, 1916. She leaves a husband, three children, two sisters, two brothers and a host of friends who long for the touch of her vanished hand, for the voice that is hushed and still.

Deceased professed faith in Christ and united with the Methodist Church while a young girl, and her love for the church knew no bounds. Like Enoch of old, she walked with God, and today is not, for God took her. Like Paul, she was ready to be offered when the time of her departure was at hand. She fought a good fight; she finished her course, she kept the faith. Henceforth, there was laid up for her a crown of righteousness, which the Lord the righteous judge gave her at that day.

‘Servant of God, well done, Thy glorious war fare is past; The battle's fought, the race is won, And thou art crowned at last.'

The funeral services were conducted by the writer, from the home. May 10th, 2:30 p.m. We laid her body to await the resurrection morning in the Stroud cemetery. May the God of all comfort be a companion to the husband, a mother to the children the stay and guide of all who mourn.

Let us be prepared to meet her in that city, ‘trimmed about with blue mountains from whose moss covered peaks a thousand glassy streams spread out in midair, like a thousand bridal veils kissing a thousand rainbows beneath Heaven's setless sun.' Where its streets are paved with gold, and its gates are of pearl. A city where the living never die; where eternal sunshine reigns.

A. M. Dupree."
