This highly esteemed and christ.] ti
lady passed from thu troubles of tinto
into tho blissful realities of a heavenly
rest, last Saturday evening,
Joh Kith, at six o'clock. Had she
lived until her next birthday sho would
have been 80 years old. She waft tho
widow ol' Holden W. Liles, who died
29 years ago, and tho daughter of Mr.
Janies Stubbs-having been born and
reared at tho family homestead, and
having since lived there all her life,
she was identified with the many
cnango sof two generations, Fail) in
life she connected herself with the peo
ple of God; was baptised into thc
fellowship of Bruton'.s Fork Baptist
church prior to her marriage, and has
ever since remained a true anti devoted
follower of Christ and a strong and
firm fVieild and advocate of the church
and tho principles of christianity.
Sho had been in feeble health for
some time ami her death while sudden
was not unexpected. Rev. J. A. W.
Thomas, her faithful and devoted
pastor, conducted her funeral services
in the Bruton's Fork church. The
crowded house and church yard was
evidence of the high esteem she had in
the hearts of the people both white and
black. The preacher, though feeble
and emaciated, delivered an instruct
ive and interesting sermon from tho
text, 25th verse and 11th chapter of
John, "Jesus said unto her 1 am the
resurrection and thc life, he that be
licveth in mo though ho were dead, yet
shall1 lie live."
Ai thc close of tho sermon 'tho tybie
preacher and faithful ip un ol'God was
so thoroughly broken down nod over
come with heat, thal he had to recline
on (he sofa and bc funned and '.aitbed
with cold waler tu prevent fainting.
Ile was carried to tho residence ol' -Mr.
J times S. Liles, where the cool sitado
and fresh water su flick'uti y revived
to allow his return linnie in the eve
ning. Rev. U. N. Pratt assisted him
in the services.
A good and true woman has died,
leaving several children, grand and
great grand children, to mourn her
loss. Wc all feel that "Aunt Betsey"
is now at rest. While she cannot nd?
viso and counsel us any more on ear!li
y?t tho retnembrauce of her pious life
'will give us encouragement in the
strong battles of lile.
