A quiet loving domestic woman whose watchword was duty, she left a yoid that cannot be filled in her home circle. Her husband who is fast nearing life's closing hour, will find them hard to live without the the tender love and care she gave him. Her brothers and sisters will miss her sympathy and helpful advice. To a larao circle of friends she has ever been a helpful and uplift ing force. She has left them all behind to bear life's burdens, and meet its soi rows without ber help; but dearly as they loved her noi.e of them would wish her to return from the joys she surely met in ber Heavenly Father's house.
