devoted christian, never afraid, having often expressed a desire, even praying for the end. her only earthly concern was for
those she was leaving behind.
Sunday night, realizing that the end was near, she called the family to her bedside and asked
that they might meet her in Heaven. Monday afternoon she asked her aunt, Mrs. Dave CAIN, to offer prayer for all those present.
Those left to mourn are her father, stepmother, husband, two sons, one sister, Mrs. W. A. DEVERS, and one brother, George
BUTLER, of Denver, Colo., and three grandchildren. Her mother, two sisters, Ruth BUTLER and Eunice NELSON, and two brothers,
Oren and Orton, preceded her in death.
Mrs. RICHARDSON, having been a true wife, mother and neighbor, will be sadly missed
in the home and community.
Funeral services were conducted by Rev. G. S. CRAMER on Thursday at the Lotts Grove Baptist
church at one o'clock. Interment was made in Lotts Grove Cemetery.
