( Va., June 26th, 1803, Mrs. Catharine Pkuneb,
wife of George A. Pruner, aged 40 years and &
Sister Pruner joined the Methodist E. Church
in the year 1840, as a probationer, and in 1847,
she made a profession of religion at a Camp
Meeting, and for a time enjoyed considerable
peace of mind, after which she fell into doubts,
and seemed to fear she had been deceived. She
prayed earnestly to God for help and soon> re
alized an answer to her prayers, by obtaining a
brighter evidence of her acceptance with God.
She lived an acceptable member of the Church
up to the time of her death, and was a devoted
friend to the Church, always ready to do what
she could to advance the cause.of religion. She
was untiring in her efforts for the welfare and
comfort of our suffering soldiers, and no doubt
tears will gather in the eyes of many a soldier
while reading this notice.
In the family circle, sister Pruner was a per
fect pattern of industry and economy, laboring
with untiring zeal for the welfare of her family
and the comfort of all who visited her. She was
a kind and obliging neighbor, a devoted wife,
a very kind and indulgent mother and mistress.
She leaves a bereaved husband' and seven
children, with many relatives and friends, to
mourn their loss; but they mourn hot as those
who have no hope, for we humbly trust that
death was gain to her, and that while the hus
band and children weep herej she is resting with
her three little children that had gone on be
fore. She suffered great affliction for several
days before her death, and on the day of her de
parture, it was the privilege of the writer to be
at her bedside, and as she was passing away, we
sung that beautiful hymn, •
«*0 sing tome of Heaven When I am called to die."
We commend the bereaved husband and mo
therless children to that Saviour who has said,
"I will never leave thee nor forsake thee." •
