Bucklin Banner, July 12, 1901

The funeral of Mrs. Nettie Sprague (Bridgewater) on the 30th was attended by a very large number of friends and sympathizers.  Rev. Patterson preached the sermon by a request made by the deceased sometime before she died, from the text chosen by herself.  The church was over crowded; the pall bearers were ladies dressed in black.  The procession to the grave was one of the largest that entered the cemetery gates when the last token of respect was paid in mournful sympathy to one of Ford's most estimable ladies loved by all who knew her as a Christian, friend and companion and heartfelt sympathy is extended to the sadly afflicted husband, father, mother and brother who are now feeling the loss of one so loved, especially to the husband who is now left to tread the gloom of life's shadow alone.
