Evans in November 1897, and to this union six children were born. She professed her faith in Christ in early life and lived a true Christian. She united with the Nixa christian church in 1923. She believed in God the Eternal Father; she believed in Christ the Savior of mankind and when death came she passed to the other life respected, loved and honored. She died, I am sure, as she would have desired could she have been consulted. There was no long and lingering sickness full of pain and suffering of sympathizing loved ones powerless to give relief, but after an illness of only a few days, surrounded by her devoted husband and loved ones, she peacefully breathed her last and passed into the Great Beyond. When she died, the family lost a patient, kind and loving parent and companion. We ask God to let his loving arms be about her dear ones to comfort and sustain them in this hour of trial. Given them a vision of larger life and helm them to look forward to a reunion with their dear one in a realm where mysteries shall be dissolved and the brightest hopes realized in the dispensation of His Providence. Funeral services were held at the home February 4th, conducted by Rev. W. B. Moore, and interment in McConnell cemetery. She leaves to mourn their loss a husband, four sons, two daughters, also do two stepsons, a mother, six brothers and two sisters. -- Written by a cousin
