Mrs. S. J. Atkinson

Died August 15, 1897 at Star City, Ark, aged 65 years and 3 months. Sister Atkinson rose early Sunday morning expecting to attend church, but about 7:30 was attacked with heart disease, and at *:20 p.m. her spirit took its flight to God who gave it. She was a noble Christian. She loved her church and pastor and her motto was "do good to all people and evil to no one. say good of one or say nothing" since her death many say, I was never with her that she did not do me good, and to be in her presence was to be made better" She leaves two sons, four daughters, three sons-in-law, seventeen grandchildren, two brothers and a host of relatives and friends to lament her death. If we trust in Christ the separation is not permanent, but we shall all meet in the sweet bye and bye.
