Lucy Dean

Daughter of John Sweat, and wife of Wm. Dean. Born in Mississippi, October 10, 1875; came to this State when a child,  joined the Bpatist church at Sand Hill and was baptized by the writer, August 1886. Married Wm. Dean January 15, 1897, with whom she lived happy until her death which occurred July 28, 1897, at her home near Weldon, Ark. She leaves a father, husband, brother, sister, and a host of friends to mourn their loss. She said she was going home. She was ever ready to testify for Jesus; often led the singing at church. We have lost a true Christian worker, but we are not as those who have no hope. Let us emulate her virtues and we will soon meet to part no more.
