Hattie Blanche James Neal

Pub. Unknown Newspaper

         Hattie Blanche,  wife of Dallas Neal and daughter to Mr. and Mrs. L. James, was born July 27, 1895; died Nov. 1, 1917.  Her life was brief, but from it we learned lessons of patience and loving kindness.  She always had a cheerful word and smile for everyone, and has left footprints that will not be erased by the sands of time.  She bore her afflictions with fortitude always thinking of the welfare of others.

A few weeks ago the death angel visited their home taking her infant babe.  She, with all her sufferings was resigned and during the last few moments of life said, "Not my will, but thine, Oh Lord, be done."

Blanche was a kind and loving wife, a good mother and a dutiful child.  Her voice is stilled here forever but the music of it will echo and re-echo thru all our coming days.  Husband, little son, parents, sisters, brothers, relatives and friends look to Jesus in this, one of life's saddest trials, for consolation, knowing He doeth all things well.

Blanch professed faith in Christ at an early age and joined the Ten Mile church.  After her marriage, she with her husband, joined the M. E. church at Pleasant Grove, where she remained a faithful member until death.  She was an active member of the Epworth League, always performing any duty asked of her.

She leaves to mourn their loss husband, son, father, mother, two sisters, two brothers and a host of relatives and friends.

Funeral services were held at Ten Mile church conducted by Rev. C. M. Prince and the remains were interred at that place.
