UNION VILLAGE

TO UNSEEN REALMS ABOVE

Passes Aged Sister In the Purity of
An Upright Life - All the Village
News.

Last Sabbath morning, there passed to the realm of the unseen, Sister Mary Ann Holland, a native of Baltimore, Md., born Febrpary [sic] 24, 1820. She joined the Shaker Society in 1848. During her long service, she faithfully filled at times, the office of Eldress and Deaconess. She was a gifted singer and for many years held leading place in the choir. In reading her long history, we follow no story of a life given to riotous worldliness, but chronicoles [sic] of a strictly upright life, grand in its simplicity, rich with purity of deed and sentiment, proving that blessed are the pure in heart. To those in whose mind surges thoughts of immortality, of future union with departed loved ones, consoling is the one.

"We shall meet, we shall meet in the morning light,
On the vernal hilltop's Glorious Height"
