in sorrow found in her a ready and sympathizing friend. The younger people came to her for counsel and encouragement, the aged for good cheer and comfort. No one ever appealed to her for aid and was turned away if it were possible for her to help them.
Service for others was the motto of her life and her loved ones who remain mourn not as they who have no hope for she died as she lived a sincere christian.
