Daily Missouri Republican (St. Louis, Missouri), June 17, 1858.
The decease of this young, gifted, and pious girl, is the subject of general regret amongst her numerous aquaintances. Amiable, timid, and retired in her disposition, she was with all a general favorite.
Though blessed with all the comforts that the wealth and position of
kind friends willing threw around her, yet it pleased the Giver of
All to summon her thus early in life to a home in the mansion of
eternal rest-- at abode for the early christian flowers who are thus
culled from the variable nursery of earth to the garden of heaven.
