Callie Moseley

Sister Callie, wife of Pro. Preston C. Moseley was born August 18, 1859; died May 14, 1896. Sister Callie was confined to her bed for several months with consumption, but always showed smiles of cheerfulness and never murmured or complained, but waited her time with patience until the last few hours when she became anxious to go. Then she called her friends around her bed and admonished them to be faithful and meet her in heaven; then bowed in humble submission to him that doeth all things well. Truly, the Lord was her shepherd, and she felt in death that his rod and his staff were her comfort and shield. Sister Callie was baptized into the fellowship of Altus Baptist church in September 1891, and lived a consistent member until her death. We deeply feel our loss, but we weep not as those who have no hope; and while we bow in humble submission, we pray God's comforting grace on Brother Moseley...some hours while they are left to tread life's pathway alone.
