She was converted early in life and united with the United Brethren church. Her life was one of toil and hardships but she never complained and was always ready to assist where her friendly ministrations were needed. She was a good friend and a loving devoted mother. A brief funeral service was held Sunday morning at the home of her son, Lewis, conducted by Rev. L. M. Beebe and the remains were taken to Promise City for burial. So he giveth His beloved sleep.
