In Memory of Mrs. W. B. Mobley

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.

-- Grandma Schooley.
