Oh a dearly loved soul,
Whose smile I will miss.
Whose words I'll remember
In sorrow and bliss.
Whose love was not hidden,
But bestowed upon all;
Though her kind heavenly father
She loved best of all;
Her bible was open
And she prayed day by day.
That her kind heavenly father
Would show her the way.
Now the dear soul has gone
To her home up above,
Not a task left undone
On this earth here below.
May her soul rest in peace
In that heavenly place
And her loved ones will join her
If they follow her ways.
Funeral services will be held Wednesday afternoon at 1:30 from the home and at two o'clock from St. John's church in Merrill.
