f ( Death Has Visited } Many Homes
' Phoebe Belle Greenwald
' ' Phoebe Belle Greenwald passed
1 away Saturday evening . For a
long time she had not been in the
I best of health and last 11'dday a
surgical operation was decided
' . : ' , { " . upon. The operation revealcd
. @ : : . her condition to be much worse
than it was supposed to be , although -
t. . .
though she rallied and hopes of
. ( ) her ' ' were entertained
l f . 'recovery ,
jJ . hut a relapse came which resulted -
. ed in her death.
4 Death no matter to whom or in
what form it comes always brings
with it the tear of sorrow and thc
sigh of grief , but it is not always
. . . . - ' that a single visitation of the
I \ destroyer brings such widespread
regret , vI' draws forth so , many
I , " i. . ' ,0 . . " . . ' , ' expressions of that regrct.rrhis
J. . . ' . wide spread s : nse of regret and
. " these outspoken expressions of
sorrow arc thc highest tributes
that the community could pay to
the character and worth of the
; .
; ' '
clepartcd Through years of close
" t ' association the people of this city
, \
' . ; )
r ( ' had come to know I Mrs. Green-
walel so well , to so appreciate her
womanly qualities , and so come
wider the influence of her Chris-
tian character as to feel that this
- tribute was her llue. True
womanhood finds its highest ex- '
cmplHication in thc home , and it
was here that thc true nobility of
, she who has been called away
was most beautifully shown. She
was not only a wife-shc was a
help-meet. No duty that would
, make home more of a home was
too 'arduous ; no task that would
m. , " bring new attraction , or more uplifting -
lifting influences into the home
I' ' , . circle was too irksome. , The duty
Iii was Ipne the task performed
! , with a gladness yea an eagerness -
. ness that male loves labor a joy.
I , , She was a wife in thc deepest ,
holiest and truest sense of that
m. lcnn. 'l'Iog-elher with her hus-
It band , she had planned thc beauti-
II , rul new home that had just been
, completed. It is one of the finest
residences in the city. Possession
, had been taken and with a wom-
I ,
I lns JOY she set about to beautify
, it , to invest it with the sacred
, .
I . . ' \tt- \.r\JC : . " atmosphere of a home. But Into
I . L the new home an unbidden and
a , welcome guest came. Thc
I hands that had been so busy were
I folded in eternal rest. She was
, more than a mother. 'ro her son
{ . Guy and her adopted daughter
" Hazel , she was a guardian , COUJ1-
seller and c01 1forter. In her
I ,
character was epitomized all thc
true virtues of mo lerhood. She
was in the broadest sense a Chris-
tian woman. A member of the
Iethodist church , she put into
daily practice , ' iii her quiet aim - unassuming -
assuming manner , all the beautiful -
ful principles of her faith. Kind
hearted amid I generous , and with
charity for all she followed in
Isis stcps. She died as she had
\'ed-upht'ld l by a sublime faith
and an unwavering confidence in
the promise of the l\Iaster. :
She was a woman of broad cul-
ture and of superior intcl1ig-cnce.
A member of Sorosis , she took
deep interest in the work of the
dub , lending the power of her
personality to its advancement
and giving freely to her co-labor-
ers the inspiration of her womanly -
ly character and her energy and
earnestness. \Vhen such a wo-
man is called suddenly from the
midst of this worlds activities , it
is not to be wondered al , if a com-
mtmit'y mourns. It is not strange
that friend and neighbor should
seek words with which to express
their sympathy for the husband
and children. There are no such
words ; soul thoughts arc not expressed -
pressed in uttered speech. In
their sudden and awful grief 1\fr.
Greenwald and his two children
have ths sympathy though expression -
pression may bc denied in words.

opportunity to pay their respects
to the dead and express their
sympathy for the living , and
while the services were in pro-
gress all the business houses in
the city were closed. 1\'lany
beautiful oral tributes gave fur-
ther expi'ession to these senti-
ments. At the conclusion of
these services the remains were
