Gladys Anderson

The subject of this notice was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J.S. Anderson of Arkadelphia. She was born July 20, 1882. Confessed faith in Christ and was received into fellowship of the Baptist church at Gurdon and was baptized by Eld. F.D. Baars July 17, 1894. At the time of her death she was a member of the First Baptist church, Arkadelphia, her membership being transferred a few days before. Gladys was a devoted young Christian and loved the Bible, having read it's entire contents three times. She selected the text for her funeral sermon. It was found in her handwriting on a piece of paper and marked the place whre she last read the scriptures. Phil. 4:13, " I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me." She was bright in mind and strong in faith.
