Alice Chandler

Mrs. Alice Chandler, daughter of Mary Barnes, was born March 1st, 1858 and died near Clinton, Arkansas, August 13th, 1885. She professed religion Aug. 20th, 1877 and joined the Baptist church to which her parents belonged, and lived a consistent and faithful member until her death. In the person of sister Chandler was found a happy combination of the Christian graces. In health she was a zealous, consistent and happy. In afflictions calm, patient and trusting and in death submissive, peaceful and triumphant. With her life's voyage over the rough sea of time was a very striking illustration of the power of faith in the Son of God and the fullness of salvation in him. her domestic and social life seemed to be regulated by the principles of piety. Sister Chandler has fallen to sleep with loved ones gone before, and left husband and child, mother, sisters and many friends to follow on. Happy going! Blessed home! I trust her friends will all fo to meet her in heaven.
