Y.  Her husband preceded her to the glory world November 14, 1918.

She professed faith in Christ when but a girl and united with Union Baptist Church more than 50 years ago and has remained a faithful member until death claimed her.  She was a very consecrated Christian woman, always entering heartily into the services of the church and especially enjoyed taking part in the song service.
