Mary Spotts

This sister departed this life September 7, 1897, at the advanced age of 70 years, one month and ten days. She had been a member of the Baptist church since September, 1874, and was a devoted member of the Smithville church at the time of her death. She leaves three sons, and one daughter and a number of grandchildren and other relatives and friends to mourn her departure. But it is consoling that they sorrow not as those who have no hope.
"We shall meet beyond the river
In the happy climes above"
