Died, Nov. 4, 1897, at her home on Hargus Creek, near Woodruff, Pa., Mrs. Jane Fordyce, wife
of Silas Fordyce, aged 55 years. The deceased was a great sufferer, having lingered many
months with pulmonary trouble.During her protracted illness there was not a murmur or
complaint. She faced death with calm resignation and christian fortitude. She united with
the family of God many years ago, since which time she lived a devoted and consecrated life.
The pure, sweet, spotless life which she leved clearly evinces the fact that she had availed
herself of the riches of the indwelling Christ. She was a woman of strong convictions,
constantly in the path of duty, lending a helping hand to suffering humanity, with an
unstinted hand she fed the poor, in trouble she was a peacemaker, in sickness she was both
a physician and a mother. Like her Master, she fed all with whom she came in contact on the
milk of human kindness. The Christian church at Willow Grove, of which she was a member,
and the entire communityh fully realize that they have sustained an irreparable loss, but
meekly and in sorrow submit to the rulings of Him who doeth all things well. She leave a
father, stepmother, five sons, four daughters and a devoted husband to mourn their loss.
Funeral services were conducted at the Christian chapel by Elders Larimer and Jobes, after
which interment took place at the Fordyce cemetery.|
