Death of Miss Artelia Posey.
0 nSunday afternoon, October 17,
;at 4:30 o'clock the sweet and gentle
spirit of Miss Artelia Posey took its
flight from earth to heaven, its abid
The funeral services were conduc
ted on Monday afternoon at her
Tiome by her pastor, Rev. A. C. Baker
and Rev. W. S. Brooke of Johnston.
"The way of the cross leads home"
and "I Surrender All" were sung.
The high esteem and love for the de
parted one were shown by the con
course of friends who gathered to
pay this last tribute. At the conclu
sion of the service the body was car
ried to Philippi cemetery for inter
The casket was literally covered
with flowers, among them being some
from her Sunday school class and W.
She had packed her suit case to
visit relatives in Columbia and was
delighted over the thoughts of her
trip to the city, but God in His wis
dom saw fit to. call her to a more
beautiful city, a city not made by
liands, eternal in the heavens.
She joined Philippi Baptist church
in her early childhood and has been
actively identified with its work ever
since. She always ^ook a leading part
:and consequently she became one of
the brightest lights in Christian work
3n the contnnmity.
Well can it be said that she was
faithful to the end for she only miss
ed two Sundays from her post of
duty at Sunday school where she
lad been teacher for twenty years.
Thirty-three years ago there rested
on her the responsibility of helping
icare for her motherless sisters. No
^sister was ever more loyal to a lit
tle family than was she. In later
years she displayed the same loving
iinterest in their sons and daughters.
She taught in the public schools
^or several years. It is not surpris
ing that when she fell asleep a few
'days .ago .strong men and gentle wo
men "whom she taught years ago,
many of them now with grown chil
dren, grieved when they received the
sad tidings of her death. After her
'home-going her loved ones heard on
.every hand, of the many deeds of
mercy sbe had done. Her. service
?was rendered so quietly and modest
ly that her left hand scarcely knew
what her rh}ht hand did. There are
many friends here and there who will
ever hold her in grateful remem
brance because of the practical ex
pressions of her love, and interest,
r The dominant note of her life was
unselfishness. Her greatest concern
was not for herself, but for those
to whom she was permitted to min
"How quietly beneath the sod,
rSleep those who've made their
peace with God; t
