Thus has the Savior taken unto Himself one of the purest and sweetest flowers from our midst. Effie Lowery immigrated to this country at the age of fourteen, and remained here until her death Oct. 25, 1901, age 88 years, 4 months and 28 days. She was a member of the German Baptist Church.
“Aunt Effie,” as she was called, had lived a devoted Christian life for forty five years. The funeral was conducted by Charley Campbell at White Church, Sunday at ten o’clock. Interment was at the Bowers’ Cemetery, where dear Effie’s body will lie in peaceful rest.
She leaves a granddaughter and five great grandchildren and a host of friends to mourn her loss. Over the river she has gone to meet her Father and Savior, only a little in advance of us. Perhaps in the ways of a kind providence it is best that it should be Effie to welcome us on the other shore. A tender clinging vine, interwoven in sweet memories from the hour the angels first gave her her home. A gentle sprit of light that flitted in and out like a gleam of sunshine. - s
