She was better known as Aunt Lou.
Almost every one loved Aunt Lou, who had lived in this vicinity and
town of Burnet all her life, save the few remaining months she had been
visiting her children who lived at a distance. The son and
daughter-in-law, with whom she made her home, are deeply grieved over
the loss of the dear mother. Death is always near and often comes
when least expected.
Mrs. Mobley was the eldest child of the late James Boyd
and Annie Boyd
whom we had learned to know and reverence in heavenly places. The
churches were their home, their feast of joy, and gladness. They
had been blessed with dutiful children. Their eldest son, John S. Boyd
of Austin, Texas was most tenderly considerate of the dear old parents
and had them sojourn with him a long time, ere he was called to his
reward. Then after awhile they returned to their old home,
Burnet, and were kindly watched over by their children who live near
the towns of Burnet and Lake Victor.
The dear old Israel fathers and mothers, also their children, are
swiftly passing away and like soldiers, all tired and worn of life's
warfare, fall asleep.
