Bessie RUNNELS, daughter of J. H. and M. E. RUNNELS, was born 29 October 1893, and
departed this life 05 Dec 1907, age 14y1m6d. Bessie was ill for some time, but bore
her illness with much patience, striving always to be a patient and obedient child;
she was ever submissive to God's Will.
She leaves a mother, four sisters and four brothers, with a host of friends to
mourn her loss. Her vacant place can not be filled in the hearts of her friends.
