l<? MRS ROSA A. CARLISLE
True success in life is determined
j by the contribution one makes to the
! happiness and betterment of the
1 world. When one passes away there
lis always some approximation of Ms
1 worth and service. Judged by this
; standard we are constrained to bej
Iieve that Mrs. Rose Carlisle is de;
serving of more than the usual no1
tice. She was reared in a refined
Christian home and had the advantages
of education and training in
j right ic'eals. But these things may
;be only external. With Mrs. Carlisle
(they were sancitfied by personal acj
ceptance of Christ and consecration
to His service. To her religion was
| the chief issue in life and her devoI
tio& was constant and beautiful. She
i regarded her own church as her first
I great field of service. Like the MasI
ter rhe had a heart of great com
passion for the little ones and found
no greater pleasure than gathering
them into the fold and teaching them
the ways of God. For many years she
was in charge of the primary department
of the A. 'R. P. Sabbath school,
and the children who compassed her
grave with a wreath of flowers were
representative of a large company of
loving hearts who have passed
through this department and have
gone their several ways in life, but
who have never forgotten the early
lessons given them by this devoted
Mrs. Carlisle was gifted with the
power of song which she used in the
| service of God till the very last days
j of life. She has been aprominem
of life. She has been a prominent
: years, ready and responsive to every
; demand. "While her voice is hushed
f her songs linger in the world to make
it happier ami the place of worship
; holier. I
Like other active workers -Mrs. >
Carlisle found a held of service outside
of her own church. F^or many
years she was actively connected with
the interdenominational S. S. work
! and her voice was often heard in
'county and State conventions in be:
half of her belo .ed children.
i . . ...
Above all tnese activities rises a j
beautiful character, a faith in God
that shone all the brighter when days
were dark. In a very striking wav
her life was triumphant. Her home
was ideal and in a very beautiful way
she fulfilled the inspired description
of a model woman. "She looketh
well to the ways of her household,
and eateth not the bread of idleness.
i Her children arise up, and call her
i blessed; he. husband also, and he

and assured them that in some way i

them. She spoke of death as only a |

house. For one of such triumphant
faitli death had no sting and the j
1 grave no victory. The end came in !
