|Mrs. Catherine Reed |
Died in Blacklick township on the 25th ult., after a protracted illness, Mrs. Catherine Reed, in the 25th year of her age. Her sufferings though protracted and severe were borne with fortitude and calm resignation to the divine will. Her trust was in Christ and she found it an anchor to her soul, sure and steadfast in the awful hour of dissolution. She has left a heart-stricken husband and three motherless babes to plod life's many pathway without a wife's angel presence or a mother's watchful care and sympathy. Their loss is her infinite gain! Father, mother, husband, children, friends, weep not - she is "not dead but sleepeth."
Asleep in Jesus, blessed sleep!
From which none ever wakes to weep.
