Death of a Good Woman.
Mrs. D. W. K. Peacock Passes Peacefully Away.

Last Friday night, the 3rd inst., at about 10:40 o’clock Mrs. Peacock, wife of Captain D. W. K. Peacock, breathed her last. She had been confined to her home with illness for about six months and her death was not unlooked for. During all this time she bore her sufferings with remarkable patience and forbearance and when death finally came to relieve her she met it calmly and peacefully, exhibiting a degree of resignation that has few parallels. “Let God’s will be done” was her life’s motto and were among the last words she uttered.

At the time of her death Mrs. Peacock was fifty-seven years, ten months and six days old. She united with the Baptist church during her girlhood and lived a consistent, Christian life. Her religion was of the practical kind and manifested itself in her daily walk. To all she was kind and considerate. She was most charitably disposed and to her kindness many a needy one had cause to be grateful.

A lady, an almost life-long friend of Mrs. Peacock, said of her: “If ever there was a Christian woman I believe Mrs. Peacock to have been one. She was one of the most loveable women I ever knew. As a wife and mother she was a model, being thoroughly devoted to her family. At home she was always entertaining and no sacrifice was too great for her to make for her friends.”

Mrs. Peacock was Miss Sarah A. Powell and married Captain Peacock in 1854. She leaves a husband and three children to mourn their loss, the latter being Mr. E. L. Peacock, of this city, Mrs. B. H. Veal of Atlanta, and Miss Hattie Peacock. To these the sincere sympathy of the entire community has gone out.

The funeral services occurred at the Baptist church last Sunday afternoon at 3 o’clock, a large number of friends being present. Dr. Dobbs, the pastor, preached a most eloquent and touching sermon, paying a beautiful and just tribute to the life of the deceased. After these services the remains were carried to Oak Hill cemetery, being followed by a long line of carriages, and after prayer, were consigned to their last resting place.
