The spirit of this young girl entered into rest Saturday morning, 7th inst., and funeral services were held in this church Tuesday last, 10:30 A.M. Solos were sung by Mrs. W. J. Whiteman and Miss Mignonette Greenlee. Brother M. L. Streetor read appropriate selections of Scripture and the pastor offered prayer. Dr. B. O. Aylesworth, of the Central, delivered a most beautiful and tender tribute to the life and character of Miss Craig, and the pastor spoke of the influence of her life upon the young peopl;e with whom she associated. Resolutions were read from the faculty of Drake University, of which Dr. Craig is Chancellor. Resolutions were also offered by the official board and the young people's society of this church. The floral tributes were numerous and exquisitely beautiful, several coming from friends in Des Moines, Iowa. Such a life as hers is a rich heritage to the church and her passing out of life tender and beautiful.
