childhood she united with the Baptist church of Delphos, later transferring her membership to the Christian church of that
place. At the time of her death she was a member of the Christian church at Kellerton.
Her health had been failing since
November, 1940, and complications set in as a result of an over-worked heart. She was very energetic and a home-loving
mother, giving much attention to it. As a God-loving Christian mother she was faithful to her husband and children,
cherishing life most when surrounded by her children.
Her parting from this life is our loss but her gain. She is now
in the presence of God in the land where there is no sorrow, pain or death, but everything is joy and gladness and it
is our goal to meet her there when this short life is over; when there will be no parting or saying goodbye.

sisters, Mrs. J. O. RICHARDSON of Delphos and Mrs. Oscar ROBERTS of Ellston; three brothers, George STEPHENS of Clearfield,
T. J. STEPHENS and Clarence STEPHENS of Delphos, and a host of other relatives and friends.
