MRS. JOHN L. (Mabelle) PHILLIPS (1951)

The passing of Mrs. John L. (Mabelle Phillips February 28, marked the earthly end of one of the best women who ever lived in the county. Having been born and lived most of her life in this section, she was well known and genuinely loved by all who knew her. She was a devoted wife, a great christian, one who like her Savior went about doing good. She honored the Lord with what she was and what she had all her life. She believed in putting the Kingdom first and as is mentioned in Proverbs 31:18, "Her candle goeth not out by night". Again "she choose the good part that was not taken away from her." She was saved early in life and devoted all the remainder of her years in serving Him whom she trusted for her salvation and to whom she had committed all things against that day. She taught in the Sunday School of the First Baptist Church, the church of her membership until the end, for more than forty years. A marvelous record. But not just a record and not just filling the place, but she led many to Christ by her teaching and Godly life. She fought a good fight, she kept the faith to the end, she finished her course and won the crown of righteousness. She knew for some time that her days were few and told many of us that she was not only ready but anxious for the summons, and had all things in readiness. She had planned her funeral hymns and all details with full instructions as to her burial, which was carried out just as she had directed at her church March 1st, and her body interred at Friendship cemetery besides her husband who proceeded her by several years. A Quite Woman and Good Friend has gone home to be with the Lord.     Her Pastor, Waler M. Blackwell
