Comity, near Maywood, Mo., on June
16. 1877 and died January 17, 1913,
a!ed 33 years, 7 months and one
day. In her death the community
has lost a good woman, the family
a devoted member and the husband
a loving wife. Prior to her marriage
she was a public school teacher and
taught for.eleven years in her own
county and was considered one of
i the leading teachers in her county
Her success in this work qualified
her so that she became a teacher in
the Sunday school, a work in which
she delighted to engage and to the
profit of all whom she taught.
After her marriage, on May 6th,
1906 to Mr. William Corder, she
left the scenes of her childhood days
and went to make her home with
her husband at Moberly, Ma Here
she remained, until it was discover
ed that the desease with which she
died, had made serious progress.
From this place she moved to Den
yer, Col., in search of health. It
was found thit even here there was
no recovery for her. Another move
was made in Colorado, tho young
husband fighting to envo his com
panion, but the desease stubbornly
resisted and she returned to her
parents in Marion county her mind
fully made up to meet death calmly.
As a young womi bl.e was of a
deeply religious uriure and when
but a girl of 13 years wus converted
and united with tho Sunrise Chris
tian Church. She later removed her
membership to Mbeily Mo. Such
was her religious Mture that she
feared not the approach of death
and even made ail arrangements
for her funeral, even to the selecting
of the beautiful hymns used in the
service. Among tho choice hymns
selected was "It is well with my
soul" and Does Jesus Care?" both of
which with others indicated her
- She leaves to mourn her loss a
husband, father and mother, five
brothers and three sisters who were
with her at the last. The funeral
service was conducted by Rev. W.
G Alcorn of Monroe City. Sleep on
Beloved, sleep and take thy rest.
We loved thee well, but Jesus loved
thee best, Goodnight, Goodnight. .
