Mrs. Mary Corkern. wife of Rev. Thomas Corkern, died last Friday afternoon at her home in North Franklinton after an illness of thirty-three years from rheumatism.. About 9 years Mrs. Corkern Shas been unable to walk or was confined to her bed, and the patient Christian life that developed thru these years of suffering have been a blessing and a sweet benediction to her family and the large circle of friends who so constantly asso ciated with her. This last illness which seized Mrs. Corkern seems not to have been due to rheumatism but was an acute stomach trouble which she herself pronounced fatal, notwithstanding the physician., and friends could not see any cause for alarm. Upon her rc quest the absent members of her family were called to her bed side, and being fully rational she would from time to time calmly express the wish that she might only live till all her children gath ered to speak to her once more. Miss Annette Corkern from Baylor University, Texas, ar rived Thursday and on the same train came a special pnysician called in consultation, with a trained nurse, all considering the patient's condition very hope ful. The oldest son, Rev. Willis Corkern from Kerens, Texas, reached his mother's bedside near noon Friday, and as if she had all of earthly joy which could be afforded her, she soon sank into the last sweet sleep from which she passed into the be yond as if calmly claiming the Christian's promised rest from all pain and suffering. The departed is survived by a husband, Rev. Thomas Corkern, who thru all the years, with truest love and perfect patience has stood by his afflicted wife to relieve and comfort in every way possible and to have himself grown so tender and helpful thru his Christlike ministry to the suffering, that he now draws all mankind to him in confidence and love. Two sons, W, A. Cot-k ern, a minister of Texas, and John Corkern, mechanic with the Bulloch Motor Co,; and six daughters, Mesdames Marion Knight, C. J. Gayer, and Vera Jenkins of Franklinton, Mrs. W. F. Edwards of Bon Ami, Miss Annette Corkern, attending col lege at Baylor University, and . Miss Elmer Corkern having the - care of the home, constitute the : immediate family of the disceas ed. A large number of close rela tives and numerous friends are affected by the loss of this Godly woman but all are comforted by the assurance of her eternal rest and the memory of the Christ like life, which was a daily in spiration to her family and friends. The sweetest tribute was paid > the mother in the home by the - touching words said in the home B services Saturday by Rev. W. A. - Corkern and Miss Annette, in y appreciation of the inspiration d and comfort she had always It proven to her family. Not one but had been helped by her pa . tience and Godly training, and in y .placing on her casket the beauti o ful floral offering from her fam ,t ily, all rejoiced that they had not s waited till this occasion to bring her flowers, but each one during her days of suffering and trial r bad done everything possible to p brighten and gladden her life and to give her the joy of know' ing as bow blelpful and SWeet her life had been to the home. The fur ther s1rvic(s were con ducted by heri pastor, Rev. H. E.
