De Soto, Jefferson, Missouri
FRIDAY, 4 JANUARY 1884.
Died, at Moontown, Jefferson county, Nov. 17th, 1883, Fellie R. SANDERS,
of Typhoid Fever, aged 15 years, 6 months and 20 days.
Miss SANDERS was the eldest daughter of Naman and Mary SANDERS, and the
high esteem in which she was held was shown by the large concourse of
people that attended her funeral to take a last farewell of a dear young
friend, many of whom seemed to share the grief of the almost
heart-broken family, she being the fifth child they have consigned to
the silent tomb. Although she had not made a public profession of
religion, her piety and moral character and the active part she took in
the Sunday school and the church, seems a strong evidence that she loved
the Lord and sought a home not made with hands, but one eternal in the
heavens. The heart stricken family have the sympathy of the entire
community in their sad affliction for it is a sore trial to part with
such a dear one; but such is mortal. A FRIEND.

The poor old year is dead
In his winding sheet of snow;
'Tis a deep and narrow bed
Wherein he sleepeth low.
