Livengood - Lulu

Source: Crawfordsville Weekly Journal Friday 8 Jan 1897

The reaper Death has again entered our midst in the home of Ephraim and Rebecca Livengood and taken their daughter, Miss Lulu, a young lady beloved by all and everywhere respected for her many excellent qualities of mind and heart.
Lulu Livengood was born Oct. 27, 1872, and died January 5, 1897. She united with the Lutheran Church when eighteen years of age, under the ministry of Rev. Barb, and has ever lived an earnest, consistent Christian life. Possessed of an amiable disposition, she ever won for herself admiration and respect for her gentle, unobtrusive manner and lady like deportment, and left many evidences that for her “to die was gain.” Her long and painful illness she bore with heroic fortitude, and though her desire to live was strong as it ever is with the young, she frequently expressed her willingness and readiness to go. So we write this brief record of a young life that was unsullied and pure, and of whom we believe it will be said, “She hath done what she could.”
