ROMINES
Mrs. Sarah ROMINES, mother of Mrs. W. U. GRIFFITH, died at the Rev. GRIFFITH's home in Carnegia Saturday at 4 o'clock, death being due to old age. She was 88 years, 5 months and 11 days old. The funeral was held at the residence Sunday afternoon at 3 o'clock, Rev. R. J. Morgan conducting the service. The body was interred in the Carnegie Cemetery.
Mrs. Sarah Rimines [sic], daughter of Mr. George FOX and Mrs. Katy FOX was born in Indiana Sept. 4, 1830; came to Roan county, Tenn., when a small girl; was married to Mr. Jonathan H. ROMINES April 16, 1857. To this union were born three children, one of whom died in infancy. The other two survive her, and were at her bedside when the end came. Their names are Mrs. Mary J. GRIFFITH, wife of Rev. W.U. GRIFFITH, and Mr. John H. ROMINES.
Grandma never attached herself to any church, but for forty years lived an exemplary christian life. Grandma, for the last twenty years, had been a great sufferer. Notwithstanding her almost unbearable pains and miseries which her body had to endure, she was never heard to utter one word of complaint, and rested her sweet spirit in the thought of her favorite song, "Safe in the arms of Jesus, safe on His tender breast."
