Maud E. Burgess

Sister Burgess was born December 23, 1875. Died August 10, 1896. She professed faith in Christ and joined the Baptist church at Hopewell, September 8, 1894, where she lived a consistent Christian life up to her death. While we mourn the loss of our sister we know the all wise and loving father has taken her to a brighter home, where sin can never enter. The sickle of death has cut down the purest, brightest flower to be transplanted in a happier world to bask in the sunshine of God's love.
 God in his wisdom has recalled
The boon his love has given;
And thought the body moulders here,
 The souls is safe in heaven.
N.C. Fry, L.W. Branscome, L.B. Oliver
Arkansas Baptist, December 2, 1896, page 13
