Death of Mrs. Sophia Benson.
On. May 14, the death angel visited
the Gray Court community and bore
on Its wings to 'Heaven, the . sweet
spirit of "Aunt" Sophia Denson. Sh'o
had been in ill health for five months
and bore her sicknes swithout a mur
mur and asked God to give her rest.
Her life of 76 years was spent in lov
ing ministratio nto her loved ones and
trying to serve her Heavenly Father.
By her many good traits of character
she endeared herself to a large circle
of friends. She leaves a husband, Mr.
Charlie Benson, and a number of
friends and loved ones to mourn her
She died at her old home where she
was born and reared, loved and cared
for. She had been married 36 yeas
and was a member of the Warrior
Creek church. The funeral services
were conducted 'by Rev. 1. N. Kennedy
of Ora, and the body was laid to rest
in the Warrior Sreek Cemetery. She
will be greatly missed by all who knew
her. She was gentle, loving and kind,
was always ready in time of need.
There was a large crowd of relatives,
neighbors and friends :present, thus
attesting the love and esteem in which
she was held in the community.
She is gone, oh! how we miss her,
Life no longer can beguile,
But we hope to meet her yonder
In that happy Afterwhile.
We 'will miss her, yes, we will miss
While she's on the other shore,
But we shall one day meet her
Where sad partings come no more.
She is gone, our hearts are aching,
Since we see no more thy face;
She is gone, we miss her presence
In each, lone familiar place.
