Departed this life August 26, Mrs. Lou Gore, wife of Eld. J. S. Gore. Mrs. Gore was born September 20, 1836, in South Carolina; joined the Baptist church and was baptized by Eld. Powell in South Carolina August 1852, and married December 22, 1853. After removal from South Carolina to Georgia she resided for several years. From thence Eld. Gore moved to Texas, where, up to the time of her fatal illness, she found work for heart and hands. She was an exemplary Christian, and we feel has gone to the bright realms in the Beyond; and while the death angel’s stroke has made a vacant seat in the family circle and a void in the bosom of many friends, ‘twill only swell the numbers ‘round the Great White Throne.

Adieu, adieu, ‘tis hard to say,

But ‘tis not a long farewell,

For in realms of lasting day

Hope we too to dwell.

Resolved, That the members of Pisgah Baptist church appreciate the piety, activity and moral worth of Sister Gore—that her loss will be felt in the Lord’s vineyard; but we must bow in humble submission to His will.

Resolved, That we tender Brother S. R. Gore and family our sincere sympathy in the loss they sustain of a pious mother and devoted wife, and for lasting comfort point them to the promises of the Holy volume.

Resolved, That we spread this paper on our minutes, and instruct the chairman of the committee to send a copy to the bereaved family. Also to furnish copies with request for publication to Texas Baptist Herald, Christian Index, Atlanta, Ga.; Palistine Advocate, Palistine New Era, and the Cartersville Free Press.

Com.: B. F. Rogers, W. I. Morrow, Orin Eastland
