The Mount Ayr Record-News, 1932
OBITUARY - Mrs. R. E. COLVIN
Adeline GRINDSTAFF, daughter of W. M. and Evangeline GRINDSTAFF, was born October 11, 1875, and departed this life September
13, 1932, aged 56 years, 11 months and two days.
She was united in marriage to Robert Edward COLVIN November 15, 1894. To
this union were born six children - Ruby, Opal, Eldon and Hale, Willie and Earl having died in infancy.
She confessed faith in
Christ many years ago at Allendale, Mo. For the last several years she has been a worshiper with the Pentecostal people of
Pleasant Hill, accepting the deeper work of the baptism of the Holy Ghost. Even in her last several months of suffering her greatest
pleasure was in prayer and praise to God. With those of like precius faith, she always said, "I am ready to live or die as the
Lord sees fit." May her amiable qualities be an incentive to those who are left to emulate her virtues and consecrate our lives to
Him, who gave His life for us.
She leaves to mourn her departure her faithful husband and four children, Mrs. John McHENRY of
Mount Ayr, Mrs. Raymond CAMPBELL of Shelton, Neb., Eldon Colvin of Oakland, and Hale at home. Her aged father and mother of
Redding; three sisters and one brother, Mrs. O. W. LYNCH of Clearfield, Mrs. Phorman SUTHERLAND of Redding; Mrs. A. D. MANNING
of Grant City, Mo., and Jake GRINDSTAFF of Clearfield; five grandchildren, Ruthie and Joan Adeline McHENRY, Robert, Ruby,
and Beatrice CAMPBELL, and many other relatives and friends.
She was a faithful wife and daughter, a kind and loving mother
and will be sadly missed by all who knew her.Weep not that her toils are over,
Weep not that her race is run,
God grand we may rest as calmly
When our work, like her's is done.
'Till then we yeild with gladness,
Our mother to Him to keep,
And rejoice in the sweet assurance
He giveth His loved one sleep.
Call not back the dear departed,
Anchored safe where storms are o'er
On the border land we left her,
Soon to meet and part no more.
When we leave this world of changes
When we leave this world of care,
We shall find our missing loved one,
In our Father's mansion fair.Card of Thanks.
We wish to express
our appreciation to the host of friends and neighbors for the many acts of kindness and assistance given us during the long illness and subsequent
death of our dear wife and mother. Also to the many who sent flowers and letters to cheer her and to all who aided us in our time of sorrow. Your
kindness will never be forgotten.
--R. E. COLVIN and children.
