Death of Mrs. Lyddie Haney.

The wife of Thomas Haney died at her home in Stilesboro on Monday of last week.  She was only confined to her bed about two weeks, and was not thought to be dangerously ill, till a short time before death came.  All was done for her that medical skill and devoted neighbors and friends could possibly do, and I am frank to say that I have never been in any community which the people are so good and kind to the sick and afflicted.  Mrs. Haney was a member of the Baptist church and a genuine Christian woman, devoted to her church, family and friends.  She was loved and esteemed by all who knew her.  She was born in North Carolina. Her father, Joseph Everage, moved to Stilesboro when she was a child, and has lived in and near Stilesboro, till her sad death occurred.  She leaves a devoted husband and two children to mourn her loss.

A stranger could readily know how she was appreciated could they have seen the long procession that stretched out behind her remains, following her to her last resting place, at Raccoon church, where her frail body was laid, to wait her Master’s call.

“Soldier of Christ well done;
Rest from thy loved employ,
Thy battle’s o’er, thy victory won—
Enter thy Master’s joy.”
