Saturday, Sept. 18, 1897

Myrtle, daughter of Matthew and Mrs. Murdoch, on Thursday, Sept. 16, 1897, aged 25 yrs. 8 mo. 28 da. Myrtle has been a great sufferer all her life. Attacked by a malignant fever at 3 months old, she was left deaf, partially blind and a cripple. She spent several years at the institution for the mute at Olathe, Kan. Several years ago she developed a rather violent form of insanity and was sent to Jacksonville, Ill. She was reduced almost to death by sickness there and was brought home and nursed back to normal health. With returning strength her mania returned and she had to be sent to Norman to the asylum. A few weeks ago, her brother from Washington, D.C. being here on a visit, she was brought home, in hopes that a change would prove a relief to her. Hemorrhage of the brain set in and she passed quietly away without pain Thursday noon.
The funeral was conducted by Rev. Naninga of Orlando who preached a beautiful discourse from the text "Behold, He doeth all things well." A large concourse of friends followed the remains to the Pleasant Valley cemetery, where they now repose in peace to await the Great Day when the dead in Christ shall rise.
She suffered much,
Early her life was quenched in gloom.
God's providence is sometimes hard
To understand. We only know that finest
Gold is sometimes tried in hottest fire,
That all the dross may be refined away.
