JOETTA

Johnnie, second son of Warren and Elizabeth Savidge, was born October 1, 1880, and passed from this life June 14, 1900, aged 19 years, 8 months and 14 days.  He died at Warsaw, at which place he was taking medical treatment.  He leaves father, mother and two brothers; a little sister having preceded him a number of years ago.  In his death we lose from among us a bright and beautiful life, on the border of a useful manhood.  He was loving and obedient to his parents, a favorite with his associates, and a faithful and attentive scholar of the Liberty Sunday school of which he has served as secretary.  May we not joy in the hope that his sufferings are over; that his soul is at rest in that beautiful city, where pain and death never enter, and that our loss, though hard to bear, is his eternal gain.       L.

Published obituary from uncertain original news source, probably the Carthage Republican.
