KITTLE - MRS. ELIZABETH M. KITTLE.   daughter of Absolom and Mary Shifflette, was born January 8, 1851, in Upshur County, West Virginia and departed this life September 22, 1886 at her home near West huttonsville, Randolph County, West Virginia.   She joined the Methodist Episcopal Church South in 1866 at Huttonsville.   She was married to Squire B. Kittle May 13, 1867.   This union was blessed with ______ whom in it's infancy preceeded her to the Celestial throne while her husband and seven children are left to mourn their great loss.

Although Mrs. Kittle life was not the writers privilege to know her in person, but from abundant testimony given by those who lived near her during her short stay in this life, she was indeed a blessing to the community in which she lived, and her pure and beautiful character cause her to be loved by all who knew her.   She had been delicate several years proceeding her death and suffering _______ _______, but bore it all with the patience and courage so befitting the christian character.   Several days before she died she was to weak to talk ________, the last moments were calm and peaceful and she quietly fell asleep in the embrace of her loved Savior at about 5:00 o'clock _____, September 22nd.   There is no doubt that her pure spirit is now in communion with her angel babe, on the Celestial Throne where she will watch and wait the coming of her beloved husband and remaining children, and if they will prove faithful to the God she loved and served so, they will meet again, and while eternity wheels its destined flight they will dwell together in sweet communion.   May God bless and guide them in the right way so that they may have a happy reunion on the sunny banks of sweet deliverance.
