We were so sorry to hear of the
sad, untimely end of Mrs. Mabel
C. Handy, who passed from this
to an unknown world Sunday
night, Sept. 22, at the ho.ne of
her sister, Mrs. Floyd Hurst, of
Noi-olk. Her death was said to
have been due to diabetes, which
?.truck her brain, causing he r
?death in a very short time. She
was taken ill on Saturday Sept.
21. and all that medical skill
could do was done for her, the
doctor at once being summoned,
but medical aid was of no avail
for death, the dread destroyer,
had come to claim its victim and
the soul of Mabel C. Han?dv pass?
ed away to be forever with her
Lord and Master, whom she lov?
ed and trusted. Mabel was a
splendid girl, posessed with such
lovable traits of character that
she was loved by all who knew
her. She gave her heart to the
Master's service r?verai years ago
and from that time she had lived
an exemplary, Christian life. She
was a member of Bethel church
and was ever found at her post o\
dutv, when opportunity present?
ed itself, to help carry on the
church work in any wav shecould.
It seems hard to us for one so
young (she only being about
twenty years of age), but God
v**ho is too good to err and too
wise to make a mistake, saw fit
lo seperate her from her loved
ones for a short time. Soon they
too must pay the same sad debt
in some wav and then if they on?
ly live faithful lives here they can
be reunited with her again in a
land that knows no parting. Her
remains were brought to Mathews
Tuesday for internment anclthefun

home by her pastor. Rev. L. J.

Cemetery, to sleep until the ulad
resurrection morn. She leaves to
mourn her untimely departure, a
husband, a father and mother,
three sister- and one brother, be?
sides a host of relatives and
friends. The community extends
its sympathy especially to the be?
