 Ella May (Phillips) SlawsonMrs. Rho Slawson aged 35 years, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. B. M. Phillips died at her home in Willing September 28, 1894. She leaves a husband, father, mother, and brother to mourn the loss of a loved one. The family have the sympathy of all in their sad bereavement.

The dear one has gone forever To the bright and happy shore.
Sweet will be her rest in heaven, There to live for evermore.
Gone a little while before us, We shall meet her by and by,
Where no death and sorrow enters In that blessed land on high.
She is looking for our coming In that land so free from pain.
Where the loved one now is living, Soon we’ll meet with her again.
We will look ahead to Jesus For a better home above,
He will take us from our sorrow To the dear ones that we love.


Card of Thanks.

Accept out thanks kind friends for help so freely offered in our late affliction. Ella May, almost without warning, has joined her brother Ferd in the other home above, leaving our hearts disconsolate. For many years her health was poor keeping her from mixing very much in the social circle outside her own home. Now she is at rest. Only one more, a son, is left to us to be a stay in our declining years. Our grateful thanks to the Whitesville Male Quartet.
Rho Slawson, Mr. & Mrs. B.M. Phillips, Frank Phillips - Willing, Oct 8, 1894
