born in North Carolina, April 15th,
1819, died at the home of her son,
Dr. Dr. J. D. Sasser, Sr., May 6th,
1904. She was married to Mr.
John Sasser in 1835, who died Au
gust 24th, 1875. She raised six
children, four of whom are left to
mourn their loss, which is her gain.
Grandma Sasser, as we all called
her, was one of the best women I
ever knew. When only a child she
professed religion and joined the
Methodist Church, where she re
mained a true and consistent mem
ber until death. She was a dear
lover of books, especially the Bible.
She was devoted to all the interests
of the church and her pastor always
found her a helpful, friend.
