Cyretha N. Cross

Daughter of Eld. J.K. Braudaway, born April 19, 1875, died August 19, 1896. How wondrous are the ways of Providence and how strange it is that those whom we love are among those that fall. Never has this truth been more forcibly expressed than in the death of our sister and co-worker, Cyretha N.Cross. She heard the voice of the Savior, whom she loved so well, saying: "It is enough, come up higher." She silently submittted to the call and fell asleep in Jesus. She rests from her labours, yea, sayeth the Spirit, and how her works do follow her. She was a true type of noble Christian womanhood and was loved by all who knew her. She was for many years past a member of the Baptist church and  a regular attendent in Sunday School. The funeral services were held at the grave by Eld. J. Mayall.
Done by the order of Pleasant Hill church September 10, 1896.
