M 1l10 3, Mrs. Leah Magee Ott, wife
t 'of Mr. Walter Ott. age 58 years.
SJust as the first month of the
i new year was folding its mantle
'r around it to make its exit that
le another month might come into
Sour lives, Death that. unwelcome
<< visitor was lurking around
Si that happy home and even before
(l the family was aware of his ap
r- proach, had seized his victim,
iC the devoted wife and mother,
e and ere they realized the awful
1- fact they stood in the midst of
death. They had no warsing of
f this sad affliction and could not
Y believe she had left them. for
only an hour had passed since
It she bade them goodnight in usual
S health and retired.
S Mrs. Ott was a quiet unassum
i. ing woman and her christian life
' was such that those who knew
. her best realized. She walked
d in the light and feared no evil.
- Though her taking was unex*
" pected, and sadden we feel sure
1 it found her prepared with her
>) lamp ready trimmed to cross Jor
I dan's dark and turbid stream. t
r We should not grieve or wish her r
Li back for in our hearts we feel
t while we sorrow thJat she walks
the Golden Streets of the New
Jerusalem and has clasped hands 'e
3 with' loved ones who have gone S
before. In her home circle her S
christian life shone brightest, i
and her devotion to her family
was something unusual. When n
it was in her power to make v
them comfortable and happy, T
selfsacrifice for those she loved ,
was her greatest pleasure '
Among this large family there w
was no spirit of jealousy existed i
for each one felt they were in
mother's favorite, so gentle and '
unseltish was her devotion to all. c
Mrs. Ott was a member of a lit
large family well and favorably r
known in Washington Parish. a
In early life she was led to the is
alter by Mr. Ott and made his w
happy . wife. For thirty-six te
years she walked by his side or
sharing alike his sunshine and *s
shadows thereby rendering c
it is harder now for him to face s
the future alone, but memories t
of her faithfulness and untiring.
devotion will strengthen him in j1g
his sorrow and enable him to *
press forward the perfect way g
till he too shall hear the gentle
whisper "Come1" and like her ii
le loved.most, be prepared to s
meet her in the fair beyond m
wht*,e uartipgs are not' known. n1
May her dear children mei
remember he~r gentle words of -
warning and. advice, follow her c
example, and when they have ,~
tinished their course here, put 2
off mortal and put on immortali- C
