She was loyal aud devoted to bcr chnrcb and to all its interests. Her worth was known only to tbose who knew ber in the pii vato walks of life. Her lite ex ernplified the gouuineness of her religion. When the summons came that She must depart this life she said so calmly, "I am ready to go. I want my relatives and friends to meet me iu Heaven." She was rational until the last and before she died she called her husband aud children around ber and wun loving and teudcr expressions left a sweet message for each of them. She said: "1 will not ask yoy not to grieve for I know you will, but it is not so sad to talk about theae things when we think lue weuuB m iuu. up PM aud better k'uigdom. You will never see iny face again in this wor d, but you can see it in heaven." She repeated the 23rd Pen 1 m. Thus she crossed the valley of tho shadow of death to plant her feet on the shores of sweet deliverance.
