Both she and her late husband were active in the building of the present structure. Several days previous to her illness she was hostess to the Woman's Home Missionary society, of which she was a member. She was always considerate of other persons' feelings and was unusually kind and of a consoling disposition, She had acquired a host of friends in this community who will keenly feel her 1055.
