Sarah Elvira Phillips

Wife of Mr. Allen Phillips, died at her home near Harrison, of consumption, December 30, 1896. She was born June 4, 1854, Boone county, Arkansas, united with the Prairie Grove Baptist church in 1873. The departure of this excellent Christian woman means a loss to family, friends, and church. She lived a Christian life, ever striving to bring up her two children in the way of the Lord. For several years feeble health had interposed a barrier to the exercise of her energy and Christian zeal. Yet she ever found comfort in the loving care of her heavenly father. She was a warm friend, a zealous Christian and a loving wife and mother. We commend her spirit to the are of our Father. May we meet on the other side of the river. "Her children arise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her."
