She was a most excell ent lady possessing a beautiful chrstian character, having been most all of her life a consistent member of the Presbyterian church. She was a fond, devot ed and indulgent mother and a friend of great fidelity. The funeral services were held at the residence, H. R- Raymond, D. D., and Rev. F. Z. Browne, her pastors, conducting, assisted by T. C. Wier, D D. of the Methodist denomination, and the interment took place immediately after the services at the late resi dence, at 4'o’clock, Wednesday evening at Fellowship cemetery, in the presence of a large con course of relatives and sympa thizing friends. The many beautiful flowers placed by loving hands upon the new made grave were symbolic of the beautiful and lovely life of the departed and evidence of the love and esteem in which she was held by her friends.
