From the Fayetteville Democrat of 22 August 1890:

After a protracted illness of many months, Mrs. Sallie V. North passed to the great beyond at 3 o'clock on Wednesday, the 20th inst.  For almost a half century she has lived among the people of Fayetteville and they will with one voice say to know her was to love her.  She was always kind and always jovial but an irreverent word never fell from her lips.  Those afflicted and in distress and the poor and needy never appealed to this noble woman in vain.  To do good and to be good was her mission in the world and she so impressed this fact on all whom she came in contact that she was universally regarded as one of the best ladies in the land and she goes down to her grave mourned by all this community.  Mrs. North was 75 years of age and her lamp of life gradually went out.  She had long been a member of the Episcopal Church and died in the triumphant faith of the Christian religion.  The funeral services took place from St. Paul's Church at 3:30 p.m. Thursday, Rev, J.J. Vaulx officiating after which all that was mortal of Mrs. North was laid to rest in Evergreen Cemetery.
