Died- Mrs. Rebeckah A. Cartwright at her home in Bazine Township Oct.
2nd, in the 47th hear of her age. She had been sick the three last
years of her life-a great sufferer most ot the time. As the end drew
nigh she said "It is well. I am ready and willing to go and
lie at rest". The furneral services took place at the M. E. Church
at Bazine. Rev. Goodrich officiating. The text was Psalms 23
chapter, 4th verse. "Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow
of death, I will fear no evil; for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff
they comfort me."
Affliction much our sister knew,
The three last years gone by,
But oh! At length the prisoner's free.
And lives no more to die.
Yes, death to her as only life.
For long she sighed to go.
To quench the thirst her suffering gave,
Where living waters flow.
M. J. B.
She died in 1887.
