About 33 years ago she united with the Ross church of the Brethren of which she was a member at the time of her death.  She will be missed in the community for when she was able she was continually going somewhere to help others in their work.  Just as she was leaving her home on Friday morning to help in a days sewing she suffered a stroke of apoplexy about 9:30; then at 5 p.m. the death angel came and called her home, never regaining consciousness, but what the Lord does He doeth well.

Mother's suffering ended with the day.
Yet lived she at its close;
And breathed the long, long night away
In stature like repose.
But when the sun in all its state
Illumined the Eastern skies;
Mother passed through glory's morning gate,
And walked in paradise.

Last sad rites were held Monday afternoon at
2 o'clock in the Salem church, services in charge of Rev. A P. Musselman and C.B. Miller & Son, and interment was made in the Salem cemetery.
