In Memory of Mrs. Cotiran
Death rides on every passing breeze
And lurks in every flower;
EIach season has its own disease,
its peril every hour!
he hegitming of a new year was the
evening of life with Mrs. Janie Field
Cothran, who answered death's call
,lanuary 2, 1917. She leaves one child,
Oscr Cothran, other near relatives and
many friends to mourn her death; yet
we should not mourn, but find comfort
in the thought that a good woman has
gone to her reward; that she now dwells
where suffering and sorrows are no
more. She was a member of the Bap
tist church, a refined Christian lady,
good imother, kind daughter, sister and
friend. How beautiful in God's sight
are those that die in the Lord!
