Clayton County Journal: October 24, 1861

--- --- ---

Died, in Sperry Township, on Sunday. Nov. 20th (sic), 1861, Mrs. Delocia Nagle, in the 40th year of her age.

Mrs. Nagle has been a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church from early youth. Her piety was unostentatious and unobtrusive, but yet firm, decisive and unwavering. She bore her last illness, although severe and of long continuance, with Christian meekness and fortitude, furnishing a full evidence of the power of Religion, to sustain the soul amidst the severest bodily suffering.

The afflicted husband and children are left to mourn over the loss of a dearly beloved and truly lamented wife and mother. In all her domestic relations she was faithful, preferring the happiness of others to that of her own. As wife, it may be truly said that the heart of her husband safely trusted in her, and she did him good, and not evil, all the days of her life.

As a mother, she was unwained in her anxieties and labors.

“Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.”

She was mild in temper, and in her tongue was the law of kindness. She was a keeper at home, averse from principle and from temper to all evil speaking; interested in doing good to all as she had opportunity.

She has gone; her spirit returned to God who gave it, and her body has been deposited in the tomb. Time will glide swiftly over her head, while sleeping in the dust. Coming centuries will soon perform their revolutions; and as the morning of the resurrection she will awake as form a dream, resplendent with immortality.

In this dispensation of providence the family and friends are truly and deeply afflicted, yet their grief is assuaged by the recollection that the Lord has done it, and by the assurance that
Though absent from the body, she is present with the Lord.
