ANDERSON, Rebecca J. Warren  

December 28, 1854  - July 27, 1902 

Page 4
A loving wife and a good mother gone home. Died near Crab Orchard on July 27, 1902, Rebecca J. Anderson, wife of John L. Anderson, aged 49 years.

Mrs. Anderson made a profession of the Christian religion about nine years ago and was baptized by Elder K. D. Noakes, after which she united with the Christian church and lived the life of a Christian until the
Lord called her home. She was a constant sufferer for many months, but was always ready to bear her sufferings with patience and when death came she calmly remarked, "I am going home."

She has left behind a kind and affectionate husband and loving, faithful daughters and one dear little boy to mourn a mother's loss, but their loss is her gain in the sweet bye and bye. Her body was laid to rest
July 28, 1902, at Ephesus church after funeral discourse by Elder K. D. Noakes and John Elder to a very large congregation, who was present to extend their sympathy to the one they always loved. May
God bless the sorrowing and heart-broken ones and may His grace sustain them in this sad hour of sorrow and bereavement is the prayer of the writer.
The family wishes to extend their thanks to all the neighbors and friends that were so kind and good to us, both day and night all through our distress.
A Friend
