The Protection Post, June 2, 1910.


Miss Hazel Thornhill Died Monday Night.

Monday evening at the family home, south of town, Miss Hazel Thornhill, second daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Thornhill, succumbed to the dread disease, "Acute Pneumonia" and obeying the summons of the Angel of Death her gentle spirit took its flight from the body of clay into regions of the Heavenly Father in whose service she was a diligent worker and whose vineyard she diligently tilled.

Miss Thornhill was ill for about four weeks and was dangerously so for some time. She was a highly respected young lady of high and Christian character, one whose labor for the good of others will be seriously missed. Of a lovable disposition she commanded the respect and sincere admiration of all who knew her. The loss of a young life so full of promise and with such bright prospects is indeed regrettable. The funeral, conducted by Rev. Crawford of Parsons, Kansas, was held from the Baptist Church in Protection at three thirty p.m., Wednesday, and the body, followed by a large concourse of sorrowing relatives and mourning friends was interred in the local cemetery in the family burial ground. The sympathy of the entire community is extended the stricken parents and bereaved relatives.

The Protection Post, June 9, 1910.


Of Hazel, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Thornhill, who died May 30, 1910.

Another place is vacant
Which our darling Hazel filled;
And now our hearts are saddened,
Because her voice is stilled.

Long, long will we remember
The pleasant smiles and greetings,
That loving Hazel gave,
To every one at meeting,

For oft when we were weary,
Her voice would cheer us up;
But now it seems so dreary
Because we hear her not.

Long, long will we remember
That weary days and nights,
That we did spend with Hazel
Before she took her flight.

When her body, racked with pain,
Unconscious be_____ lay,
Waiting for the messenger
To bear her soul away.

Now humbly we will say,
"Our father's will be done."
For we expect to meet our darling,
When life's toilsome race is run.

Then we with loving friends shall meet,
Who have gone before,
Where pain and death will never come,
And, partings are no more.

G. F. S.
