In Memoriam.

Departed this life on 28th March 1889, Mrs. Laura Powell, relict of the late Thomas Powell, in her seventieth year. In her early life Mrs. Powell joined the Baptist church and lived a Christian life—quiet and unassuming in her manner and habits she was known only to a small circle of friends, and yet when there was sickness or suffering of any kind in her vicinity there was none more ready to render kindnesses than she, in fact it was only these occasions which took her away from her own family circle. The writer knew her intimately for over thirty five years and does not remember to have heard her say a harsh or unkind word to anyone.

The custom seems to be to write long and eulogistic notices of departed friends. I however propose only to say the subject of this notice exemplified the life of an humble Christian in her daily walk and conversation. The end of her life here was like ripe fruit, and when fully matured was gathered to her Father’s House.
