Died In South Carolina.

Mrs. Going, Who Was Formerly Miss Gordon, of Adairsville.

The grim monster death always leaves sad hearts in his wake, no matter if his approach has long been expected, and oftentimes the friends of his victim, after witnessing the long weeks and months of pain and suffering which had been endured, cannot help feeling that death is a merciful deliverance from the torture of ravaging disease, still when we think that a friend or loved has been removed from amongst us forever and forever, and when we look around our homes and firesides, and see the vacant places which are to remain vacant forevermore, we are overcome with sorrow and sadness, even though we realize that our temporary loss is their eternal gain. Our community was saddened by the hand of death Friday afternoon by the death of a most estimable Christian lady, Mrs. Tompie Rachel Going, wife of Mr. Brooks B. Going, of Kilton, S. C. Mrs. Going has been a sufferer for four years from that dread disease, consumption, which had gradually tightened its grip upon its victim until months ago she was confined to her bed from which she never recovered, and her form gradually wasted away, and much suffering, until the end came Friday afternoon. Mr. Going realizing that his wife could not receive as careful medical treatment at his home as he wished, removed her to his brother, Dr. Going’s house, in Union, some months ago, where she has since remained.

Mrs. Going has a host of friends in Kilton and Union, who extend to the bereaved their heartfelt sympathy. Mrs. Going’s remains were interred in the presence of many friends and relatives.

Mrs. Going was a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. M. E. and Jarrett Gordon, of Adairsville, Ga., and has many relatives and friends there and at Cartersville, having taught school at both places prior to her marriage. She desired on her death bed that her friends and relatives be informed that she had gone home to heaven and wished to meet them all in the better land beyond the skies. A noble, patient, long-suffering Christian woman has been taken from us, and while we realize that we can never call her back to us, we have the blessed privilege of going to her, and methinks she stands at the pearly gates beckoning us on.

A Friend.

Union, S. C., November 14, 1897
