She was in her usual health apparently within an hour of her death, and was suddenly taken ill and in less than an hour passed away without speaking. Her aged husband is stricken with grief at the loss of his companion for so may years and the sympathy of the entire community is extended to him in this, his hour of sore distress. The funeral was held from the residence on Friday last at one o’clock.”

      Resolutions of Respect
      “At a regualr meeting of Samuel Judd Post and Corps the following resolutions were adopted on the death of Mrs. Maryette Phelps:
      Whereas, On the 15th day of June, 1904, our Heavenly Father called to her home on high one of our loved members. The summons came at the end of a life well spent in the service of her Lord and in the loving care of husband and children. Therefore be it resolved, That we tender our sincere sympathy to the bereaved husband and children. To the husband who for nearly sixty years had relied upon her counsel and tender love in all the trials of life, we would say, “She is not dead, but sleepeth;” and to the children who miss her gentle presence, “Try to follow in her footsteps and forget not the example of her long life.”
      Resolved, That out of respect to her memory our charter be draped in mourning for thirty days, and that theses resolutions be spread upon the minutes of our order, and that a copy of the same be sent the bereaved family, also that it be printed in our local paper.

      One day the angels came
      For this beautiful mother of ours,
      And lured her away to their home
      That lies close to the ameranth bowers,
      And there in her radiant youth,
      Where the ransomed aye flourish and bloom,
      In the region of sunlight and truth
      She will wait for her loved ones to come.
