Farewell, our dear mother
With sorrow severe,
We mourn for thy presence
To us so dear.
Thy counsels we’ve lost
The old home is broken,
And we are left here to wander alone.
No mother to cheer us and point out the way
Through this world of sorrow,
In which we now stay.
Her work is all done
And most faithfully, too;
She has gone to her Saviour,
Her joys to renew.
Funeral services were held Monday afternoon at 2:00 o’clock at the Sciioto M. E. Church with Rev. Martin officiating. Burial was made at the Scioto Cemetery. Undertaking was in charge of the Omar Davis Company, Beaver.
