Ringgold Record, 1889
Avalie, daughter of W. H. and Martha JOHNSTON, was born near Blackmore, Ringgold county, Iowa, June 7, 1877 [near Blackmore, Ringgold County, Iowa], and died March
11, 1889. She united with the M. E. Church on probation, December 12, 1888. Ere her term of probation had expired she
was called to join the Church Triumphant above. Avalie was not loved alone by her parents, brother and sisters, but all who
knew her were drawn toward her by her simple loving ways. The funeral services were conducted at the M. E. Church by the
pastor assisted by Rev. Wm. B. THOMPSON, of Mt. Ayr. The family have the prayers and sympathy of the entire neighborhood.
Lone are the paths and sad the bowers,
Whence thy meek smile is gone,
But, O, a brighter home than ours,
In heaven is now thine own.
NOTE: Avalie was interred at Johnston Cemetery near Kellerton, Ringgold County, Iowa.
