Mrs. Ellen K. Proctor.
In the mighty democracy of
death there a re no favorites, and
' in spite of all that the loving hearts
and hands of faithful and devoted
children could do. Mrs. E. K. Proctor
passed to her heavenly home from
her home in this city. January 6,
1913, aged 72 years, 4 months, 6
Mrs. Proctor's maiden name was
McPike. She was born in Pike
county, Missouri, August 31st, 1840,
and in 1841 the family removed to
Marion county. On June 7,' 1860.
she was united in marriage to
James M. Proctor, and in 18G6, they
removed to Monroe county, settling
. nn a farm near Monroe Citv. This
union was blessed with nine children,
eight of whom are still living. They
are: Mrs. Ellen Brown, Thomas,
Zach T. Mrs. Anna Baker, Mrs,
Alma Vaughn, James M. Jr. Mrs.
Mattie Johnson, and David M
, Proctor. To these children Mrs.
Proctor was more taan mother-she
. was their friend, their companion,
-. their teacher, their sweetheart.
When rhe nnd came there were
. wrinkles in her brow-but they got
tKara Rnprifirind fnr her children
' The raven tresses that thrilled their
father's youthful, heart when he led
her to the altar as a bride, were
, white as the first snows of winter-
but every gray hair was a badge of
honor to a life given to her family
and her Christ. Her footsteps
faltered aud her. brow denoted care
but those irupei feet ions had come as
a natural consequence of years
bent over the cradle of her children,
leading their faltering footsteps to
the throne of God. But these
children never saw a white hair nor
a faltering footstep, nor a wrinkle
but away back in the vista of life's
youth they saw a queenly bride led
by a manly gentleman, setting up
the altar of the home to the con
secration of their coming family.
Through all the years she lived for
them in beautiful selfsacrificing de
votion, and when their father died,
the only rival they had to their
"sweetheart's" deepest devotion
passed away. Mothers never die
This mother, who watched over her
children in life, through all its
meanderings, has simply changed to
a more convenient watch-tower. I
see her now. Beautiful in her
reincarnation in the Spirit of her
Lord, she guides her children to a
better destiny. We cannot wish
them better than to walk worthy of
the honored name they bear.
When fifteen yean of age she
professed faith in Christ and united
with the Bethel Baptist church.
When the First Baptist Church of
Monroe City was organized, she
and Brother Proctor became
charter members, and through all
the years of its history she has
been its unfailing friend. She loved
her church and gave to it the best
of all she had. She was loyal to
its peculiar doctrines, as she was
loyal to its ministry. She was the
pastor's true friend. When others
criticised and found, she was true
with never a word of unkind
criticism. To the very last she
manifested the keenest interest
in the church and all of its work.
leaving to it an interest in her
estate. One of the last acts of her
life in the evening before she passed
away was to send some money to
the , Woman's Missionary Society.
She loved her church as she loved
her family. She did not neglect her
family for her chulch, nor did she
allow her home duties to prevent
her work for her church. A Christian
she was, of unselfish life and un
selfish life and unfaltering faith.
Like every good woman she can
never die; for evermore she lives in
her children, her church, her com
munity. There was nothing in all
the years that I have known her
that was mean or low, or sordid, or
selfish. She was the most unselfish
character I have ever " known.
As a woman she exemplified all
that is womanly in life, and the
cause of womanhood is better for
her life A Southern woman of
the old-school, she knew her sphere
and filled it in a way worthy of the
name she bore. She was indeed a
wise and womanly woman. Not
only a worthy woman, but a gentle
woman, such an one as must be
born, not made. As I think of her
as a wife, mother, Christian and
friend of all, as she towers in her
superb strength above all surround
ing humanity, she seems to me-
"Like some tall cliff, which lifts
its awful form,
Swells from the vale, and mid
. way leaves the storm;
And, though round its breast, the
rolling clouds are spread.
Eternal sunshine rests upon its
