Sarah S. Petty
At Long Branch, Neb., Feb. 14, 1886, of consumption, Sarah S. Petty, wife of Julius T. Babcock, in the 28th year of her age. She was born near Pardee, Kansas, where she lived until her marriage. Since that time she has lived in this community. She professed faith in Christ, and united with the Pardee Church, at the age of ten years. She removed her standing to this church when she came here to reside. Her life was one of true piety, and in the church and society she was a faithful, earnest worker. In the Bible school she was an efficient teacher and a faithful student. But, nowhere shall we miss her so much as in the prayer meeting, where she was always present, when practicable. But the faith she cherished in life, was sufficient in death. Her sufferings were born without a murmur. To her pastor she remarked a few days before her death, "I have perfect peace and rest in Christ." She leaves a husband and two little children to mourn their loss. Funeral services held at the church, Feb. 16th, at 11 A. M. D. K. D.
