S. J. Rhodes

Mrs. S. J. Hazen, mother of Frances, wife of Rev. C.B. Rhodes, and our adopted mother departed from this world to join her beloved children in eternal peace, April 2, 1896. Her departure is a loss to husband, relatives and friends that can be repaired by none but Christ himself, for she has lived a Christian life of great usefulness.
While living she did teach us how
To live and love and pray just now.
And when the call of Death came by
She calmly taught us how to die.
Thank God she has been with us
And left with her great overplus
Of love, some sparks, which used aright
Will lead us into eternal light.
