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.
