Died. At the silent twilight hour of 7 p.m. May 16, 1889, the spirit of grandmamma Foster winged its flight from earth having us in darkness - while her spirit lifted away in the dawn of a new day to the dwelling of light now made with hands, eternal, in the Heaven." She was 82 years of age, and may it be said of her, "she _____, what she could" in the previous life, so filled with good works which will live in the hearts of those who loved her forever. To say that we miss her is but a feeble expression of the overwhelming sadness of those of us who from day to day saw her so gently and quiet in her accustomed seat, she was a loving and kind mother and grandmother, and a friend to all, ever ready to befriend and assist in her last days when she suffered so much "with smiles concealed her pain." The many loved ones who have "Gone before" were, I think waking at the "Beautiful Gate" to welcome her to the "City of Light" and now her voice mingles with theirs, singing "Heavens to the King."
