OBITUARY

 

The subject of his brief memoir passed peacefully away on Sunday, May 11, at 11:30 a.m.

Etta Joy was born in Climax, Mich., in 1858, and at her death was approaching her thirty-third year.  Her father was the Rev. H.M. Joy, a much beloved but now glorified  minister of the gospel. In 1878 Etta was united in marriage to Mr. Ed. Woodford, of Niles. A family of four girls as sweet as ever were given to parents has cheered their home. In disposition Mrs. Woodford was amiable, ever ready to assist in every good work, She won for herself many friends. After one week's illness of typhoid pneumonia, notwithstanding all that her physician could do for her, she succumbed to the disease. The husband and motherless children have the deepest sympathy of all. Do we weep? Yes! But not as those who have no hope. In conversation with her on the Wednesday previous to her death she assured me of her trust in her Savior, and expressed a desire to live to bring her children up in the fear and admonition of the Lord, and also to work for the welfare of souls and the prosperity of the church in this place.  These with other considerations bring light to us in this hour when no human voice can cheer us, no human hand lift us up.  To the bereaved: Let me ask you to look beyond the dark cloud that rests on your home, and may the memory of the deceased be ever with you as a sacred treasure, exercising, perhaps, a greater influence than would have been possessed by the loved one if still in the land of the living.

Many of us know that the recollections of loved ones are a source of strength and tender joy to us, therefore, dismiss your painful forebodings.

The funeral services were conducted by the Rev. A.M. Gould, who was assisted by Revs. Levi Master and A.H. Ranton.
