In Memoriam
Mrs. Nellie Trenkle, dearly beloved
wife of Sam Trenkle, and third daugh
ter of Mrs. Nellie Heath, passed away
on the night of October '25th, 1910, at
Mercy hospital after an illness of but
a few weeks, aged 24 years, 4 months
and 18 days.
She bad grown from early childhood
to a most beautiful womanhood here in
our midst. Nellie was a most con
sciencious, consistent Christian girl
with a smile and word of good cheer
for everybody- Death was due to ty
phoid fever which she contracted after
nursing her husband through the same.
About six weeks before her death she
calmly gave her heart's idol, little Al
len, into the tender Shepherd's care,
but the strain of it all was too much
for the brave young soul arid, notwith
standing the tender care of her heart
broken mother and other dearest to
her, her pure soul took its flight
heavenward, leaving her husband and
little babe, her mother, her four sisters
and her brother to go on through life
without her.
The funeral services were held in
the homq, A short but most beautiful
discourse was delivered by Rev. Dr.
J. L. B, Jones, pastor of Alliance M.
E. church, who conducted the service,
assisted by J W. Thomas. Notwith
standing the cold, raw day the funeral
was attended by an immense concourse
of people, for truly, none knew her but
to love her. The body was laid to rest
in Greenwood cemetery beside the
newly made grave of her little one.
Dear Nellie, wife, daughter, sister,
You have gone to realms unknown,
Where all the good and pure ones
Shull behold God on His throne.
You have gone tp greet your loved
Who have pussed from earth before
And are beckoning us to follow
And tread with you the golden shore.
Card of Thanks
We desire to extend our heartfelt
thanks to the many friends and neigh
bors who so kindly assisted us in the
sickness and death of her who was our
beloved wife, daughter aud sister.
