In Memory of Elizabeth Sproull

Who departed this life July 23d, 1888, aged 68 years, three months and twenty-three days.  She has gone to that upper and better world, where all who lived the life she lived go.  She was loved by all who knew her, both friends and relatives.  She was a member of the Presbyterian church at Euharlee, Ga., since 1854, and lived up to the rules of the church of her choice.  She leaves one brother and two sisters, and many nieces and nephews to mourn her death.  She was interred in the old family graveyard near McGinnis, Ga., known as the Sproull graveyard.

Once more our hearts are burdened
With the weary weight of woe,
Once more a home-faced loved one
From our circle called to go.

Once more the gates are opened
In the home of angels blest;
Once more the heavy laden
And the weary have found rest.

Like a lily, pure and spotless,
She has faded from our sight;
Sickness, sorrow, pain can never,
Reach her in that world of light.

--One Who Loved Her.
