Obituary ~ Helen Evelyn Hill

Hill, Helen Evelyn was born January 12, 1914 and died March 6th, 1918. "The Lord had need of our darling child, So He took her from earth away."

Four years ago the twelfth of January, Helen Evelyn came into the home of Harold and Sylvia Hill. Her presence was a continued source of delight and blessing to her parents, grandparents, and friends.She was so bright, affectionate, winsome and joyous that none could know her but to love her. In the four brief years she so bound herself with the cords of love about the hearts of those near to her, that her going has torn their hearts and left them sore.

Four years seem short as we look back, but long enough to learn to walk, talk, and play; to learn to love the house of God, the Sabbath school, the picture stories, the memory texts, but the songs used by the beginners. Just last Sabbath morning she wished word carried to her teacher that she was too sick to go to Sabbath School.

When she was about one year old, Helen's parents in the ordinance of baptism, claimed for her the Lord's covenant privileges. Like the Jewish mothers when Jesus was on earth, these parents, by faith, brot their child to his loving arms who said, "Suffer little children to come unto me and forbid them not," remembering that it is written, "The promise is to you and to your children " And, today, looking up into the face of the gracious covenant keeping Savior, they "Sorrow not as those who have no hope." They rejoice, too, that the Lord permitted them to keep her with them for four bright years, and even amid their tears, the glory in being honored by having their child received into the presence of the King. "This is the way our darling slept; A mist of tresses backward thrown. By quavering sighs where kisses crept, With yearnings she had never known; The little hands were closely kept About a lily newly blown-And God was with her. And we wept. And this is the way our darling slept."

Funeral services were conducted from the home at 2 o'clock by Rev. T. R. Aikin, assisted by Rev. C. A. Carlson. Interment in Clearfield Cemetery.
