"More than seventeen years ago, she came to this community to complete her education, and many still here remember her as a sprightly and beautiful girl. Comparatively few know what a character she developed as the christian daughter, wife and mother. Fully employed at home she could not go abroad or mingle in general society. Having been well taught in early life she devoted herself with wonderful success to the instruction of her children, as well as to the ordinary domestic duties. This many in her situation would have thought enough for them to do; but not so with her. There were those around and near her who were 'ignorant and out of the way,' and she labored, earnestly to impart to them 'that knowledge which maketh wise unto salvation." She was 34 years old and leaves a husband and six children.
