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
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.
