Fannie Lea

Miss Fannie Lea, died at her home near Lacy, Ark., Oct. 23, 1890, aged 24 years, 2 months and four days.
This Christian sister born in St. Helena Parish, LA., Aug. 19, 1866. She moved to Arkansas with her parents in 1868. Receiving instructions principally from her mother, she began teaching at the age of 17. In 1884 she professed faith in Christ, and joined the Baptist church, living a life of consistency and faithfulness. During the eighty four days of her sickness, she exhibited great Christian fortitude, and died rejoicing in a Savior's live. There are many friends who join her parents and sister in mourning, that we have her no longer with us, while we rejoice that she rests in the mansion above.
