Again God in His infinite mercy has shown us that we know not what a day may bring forth for the Angel of Death has visited another home and taken from the world of sorrow and suffering one who was universally loved and respeted by all who knew her. Lucy Ann Patton was born near Browns Valley on Nov 12, 1846 and departed this life on Sat, March 24, 1923, after an illness of one week  of Pythiasneumonia, age 76 years, 4 months as 12 days. She was the daughter of Josiah and Jane Davis who has spent her entire life in this community. She was united in marriage with Thomas Patton, May 3, 1865. Thirteen children were born to this union, six of whom preceded her in death. They are Mrs. Lora Cox who died 23 years ago; Harry, three years ago and Charlie who died July 1922; WIlliam, Adrian and Leota Pearl died in infancy. Also two grandchildren, Lucille Patton passed away July 1916 and Mary Helen Bayless Sept 1922. Those who survive are a lonely husband and seven children: James and Mrs. Thomas Rice of Crawfordsville; Mrs. Eva Motter, Mrs. John bayless, Joe and Clyde of Browns Valley and George of Lafayette. She leaves 30 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren, three brothers, Thomas, Caleb and John Davis of Lebanon and three sisters, Mrs. Eva Clark of Logansport; Mrs. Mollie Kendall of Dana and Mrs. Sarah Rice of New Market. Aunt Lucy as she was known by many was a lifelong Christian and a member of the Baptist Church which was evidenced in many ways by her sunny disposition, sweet and mellow voice and by her many virtues and we know that heaven is brighter by having "Mother" added to the throng of white robed angels. Her sickness was a short duration and her death came as a severe shock to the family. Many of her relatives and friends were not apprised of her sickness and were therefore unprepared for the sad message. Everything that loving hands could do was done to alleviate her pain and to keep her with them but had a greater work for her loving hands to perform. She was a self-sacrificing mother and nothing was too hard for her to do for her loved ones. She was greatly attached to her children and toiled unceasingly to promote their happiness. She was always the same dear grandma, ever ready to comply with all their wishes that was in her power to confer to add to their pleasure. We cannot express in words the extreme loss to her husband whose loving and helpful compasnion she has ben in his home. No one could say that she did not fill her mission for she did what she could; she was always up and doing, not for self alone, but for the love and gratification of those she loved. She was a good neighbor, a noble wife and a sweet mother and will be sadly missed by all who knew her. The greatest inheritance is the memory of a Christian Mother brighter than gold but which gold cannot buy. The funeral was conducted at the Baptist Church on Monday at 1:30 and was in charge of Rev. Huckelberry of Franklin. The pallbearers were nephews of the deceased. the flower bearers were four granddaughters: Katherine, Genice, Mable and Mayme Patton. The choir sand three beautiful selections, "Sometime, Somewhere," "Sleep On" and "No Night There."- typed by kbz
