She was a kind and loving wife, a tender and affectionate mother, kind to friends and strangers, devoted to the Saviour and church. Sweet memories of mother are inthroned in the hearts of loved ones, a hope steadfast and sure, "Mother awaits the home coming of love ones to a Heaven Glorious, Lovely and Pure."
