Mar 26, 1920 - In Memory

Miss Bertie, daughter of H. C. and Mrs Lizzie Duren, of Violet
Hill was born June 26th1897. Was converted and united with New Prospect
Baptist Church, 1910. In 1912 she moved her membership to Fair View Church
where it remained until her death, February 17, 1920.

Thus has passed away one of Izard County's finest young women
cultivated, kind to all, cheerful, industrious and sacrificing for others.
She taught in the public schools for several terms. The boys and girls whom
she taught will always cherish her memory.

Sister Bertie was an exceptional church member, always there and
took part in the work of the church. After having been her pastor for three
years, I shall miss her sunshine and service beyond measure. We do not
understand the providences of God now; but shall when all the redeemed shall
assemble with Jesus in the home eternal.

May our loving Father's grace be supplied to comfort all the
bereaved. By her Pastor, L. H. Davis.
