1903, August 23

     Artie Mae Watson Osbun, daughter of Aaron and Tabitha Watson was born in DeKalb County, Ind., Oct 25, 1882 departed Aug., 25, 1903.  Aged 20 years and 10 months.  She was united in marriage to Henry Osbun Nov. 14, 1901 by Rev. W. L. Meese.  One infant preceded her to the spirit world.  She leaves a husband, father, mother, one brother and one sister and a host of friends to mourn her departure.  She gave her heart to God at the age of 12 and again renewed her covenant with God a few years ago.  She was a member of the M. E. church of Grove Bethel,  She lived a beautiful life until death.  In her last hours of suffering she would frequently praise the Lord and talk of being ready to go.  In her life she was kind to all, a good daughter, a living wife and a noble spirit in giving her heart to God.  She became the child of immortality whose robes are divine and whose destiny is Heaven.  She has left us and we trust she has entered the King’s palace with rejoicing to be present with the king of glory forever.
     The funeral service held at the First M. E. Church, Auburn, at 3 o’clock Thursday Aug. 27 were by Rev. L. M. Krider, and the interment at Woodlawn Cemetery was conducted by G. S. McCord.
