Lucy Drake Obituary
Clark County Clipper, October 2, 1902.
Drake - At her home south of Englewood, Kansas,
September 1, 1902, Lucy Drake.
Deceased was born in Noble county, Ind., 30th of July, 1876. At the age of 23
she united with the Christian church and died on the triumph of faith, leaving
her father and mother, three brothers and four sisters to mourn her loss. Her
remains were laid to rest in the cemetery at Ashland, Kans.
She leaves a vacancy in the home and among the Christian people. She will be
missed. Her dear ones are made sad, oh so sad, but for her "to die is gain."
She was not heard to repine during the long, tedious days of suffering but
encouraged all around her by her cheerful patience and loving appreciation of
Her beautiful Christian life, her perfect trust in Jesus, and her patience
during her illness will long be in our memories as a trait of the Christian life
which she lived.
One precious one has left us,
One voice we loved is stilled;
One place on earth is vacant,
That never can be filled.
God in His wisdom has recalled
The boon his love has given;
And though the body moulders here
The soul is safe in Heaven.
