Elizabeth J. Spiller

Sister Elizabeth J. Spiller was born October 10, 1834, died October 1, 1895. She joined the Presbyterian church when young, but in after years became dissatisfied with her baptism and joined the Baptist church at Dayton, Ark. Was a member of Fellowship church at Witcherville, Ark, at the time of her death. She leaves three children to mourn her loss, two girls and one boy. Sister Spiller met the end with live christian heroism, and peace known only to the child of grace. How sweet to witness the calm departure of them who fall asleep in Jesus. O! Brother, Sister, each of our departing believers in Jesus is but stamping the text upon our hearts as they leave the scene of battle, " Oh death where is thy sting" That smile, that submission; but showed love and peace.--R. A. Watson
Arkansas Baptist, December 4, 1895, page 5
