MRS. FULLER DEAD.
After a Long and Painful Illness Death Comes to Her Relief.
West Union Gazette:—Mrs. Lou J. Fuller, wife of Hon. Wm. E Fuller, U. S. Assistant Attorney General, died at their home in this city at midnight Friday, Nov. 1. For five months she had patiently suffered from an incurable disease, in the nature of a necrosis of the bones, and in all that time her family were painfully conscious that there was no hope short of the merciful end that came on Friday
Mrs. Fuller was the only child of Hon Wm. Harper of Mediapolis, who survives her, in his 82d year. She was married to Mr. Fuller Jan 1, 1868, and ever since has lived in West Union, loved and esteemed of all, a model wife and mother. Nine children were born to them, seven living.
The loss of Mrs. Fuller to those who personally knew her can never be made good. In the memory of all of us this true Christian woman will ever remain as a revelation of the best. Her life was noiseless, but her character was firm and tranquil, and she was capable of meeting without doubt or hesitation any form of martyrdom. In her family she was most fortunate and happy. She was a lady of the simplest and most refined manner, and to her friends her cheerful presence always inspired hope and encouragement. Courage, confidence and cheerfulness, these were the good angels that dwelt with her. To those whom she loved or who personally loved her the thought of her is a perpetual blessing.
The funeral was held Monday afternoon at the house, services conducted by her pastor, Rev. Rice, assisted by Rev. Graham and Pres. Benton.
Transcriber’s Note: Find a Grave shows her name as Lurissa and that she is buried in the West Union Cemetery and was born November 1845 and died Nov. 2 1901.
