Comforting words were spoken from the 14th Chapter of St. John. Two favorite hymns, "The
Old Rugged Cross," and "In the Sweet Bye and Bye," were sweetly sung by Mrs. Alice Riley,
soloist of Rome. Mrs. George Butler of Taberg, played several favorite selections on the
organ before the services.
Many beautiful floral offerings from friends, relatives and neighbors silently testified to
the love and esteem of the departed one who has spent nearly her whole married life of 66
years in this place and always had a smile and kind word for everyone and ready and willing
to help wherever she could. She will be sadly missed by a host of friends and relatives.
The bearers were Joseph Megerell, William Stage, Robert Talbot, Jesse Hyde, all near neighbors.
