Death of Two Estimable Ladies
Death has reaped a rich harvest this week. Thursday two of our most valued citizens were called to their reward.
The gloom of sorrow is cast o'er the city, and mourning friends join in the grief of two desolated homes. Mrs J.W.L. Smith, the wife of our esteemed railroad agent, passed away, Thursday morning after a weeks illness.
About a week ago she was stricken with paralysis and never again left her room. She was a woman of kind instincts. A noble christian, affectionate mother and kind friend, she leaves a void in the hearts of those who knew her. May the hand of Providence sustain the afflicted household. But a short time after the death of Mrs Smith, the news reached us that Mrs Judge J.D. Tyler had passed away.
She had been a sufferer for several years, but in her affliction the friendships of her active life were but brightened and sanctified. She was a conscientious christian and a lady of the highest womanly qualifications. Those who knew her best will moss her most and those who ever enjoyed the sunshine of her life will feel that a kind tender, generous, noble woman has gone to her reward. These two ladies, who have contributed by their lives so much to the society of our town, will be laid away with the universal conviction that two saints have arisen to eternal glory.
The funeral of Mrs Smith took place at the Methodist church at 2 o'clock yesterday evening, and of Mrs Tyler at the Presbyterian church at 3:30 o'clock. Hosts of sorrowing friends followed the remains of each to the cemetery where their dust shall sleep under the sentinelship of angels.
