Maud Somerville Obituary
Clark County Clipper, July 31 1902
Maud Somerville, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Somerville, born in Sullivan
county, Mo., August 20, 1889. United with the Presbyterian church Sunday, March
30, 1902. Died at her home in Ashland, Kansas, July 18, 1902. Although she had
suffered for several weeks she was very patient and bore the pain without
complaint. She always had a smile and a pleasant word for those about her and
tried to make the parting easy for papa and mamma. Many an older person could
learn a lesson from the patience and devotion of this little girl to her parents
and relatives. She said that she was prepare and ready to go. God in his
infinite justice relieved her peacefully and quietly.
The family have the sympathy of all in their bereavement.
Sweet it is too think, our loved one,
That thou art forever blest,
Sweet to think thy journey's ended,
And with God thou art at rest.
