Tennessee Jane Sims

Tennessee Jane, wife of Bro. T.B. Sims, died at her home March 9, 1896. She professed faith in Christ and was baptized into the fellowship of Fairplay church in 1871, where she lived a devoted Christian to the time of her departure. Was married to T.B. Sims in January 1875. In her death society loses a model lady, the church loses a meek, devoted and zealous saint, eight children lose an affectionate, loving and tender hearted mother and our bereaved brother loses a faithful and loving companion, and yet all our loss is her gain and we submit to the ruling of him who rules wisely and cares for the sorrows of the sorrowful and is ever ready to heal the broken hearted and whose purpose it is to sanctify our afflictions to our own good.
