Dorothy A. Prince
May 19, 1855 - Feb.20, 1908

Dorothy A. Prince was born May 19, 1855 at Wheeling, W. Va. She was married to Samuel K. Hardy January 12, 1873 in Putnam Co., Mo. To this union was born 18 children, six sons and twelve daughters, two sons and one daughter died in infancy, and there are four sons and eleven daughters who survive her, also a husband, a father, three sisters and four brothers.

She was converted and united with the Christian Church at the age of 16, at Hickory Ridge, Iowa, and afterwards in the year 1901 she united with the Methodist Episcopal church at Corydon, Iowa and her membership was transferred to the M E Church in Campbell Neb., in April 1902.

On Tuesday afternoon, Feb. 11, she went to visit her daughter, Mrs. Bierhaus near Culbertson and on Saturday following her arrival there, she was taken seriously ill. Every thing was done that kind friends could do, that she was conscious of the fact that she was about to go home to the realms of peace and she requested her daughters to sing, "Nearer My God To Thee" and also exclaimed Oh! the gates, the beautiful gates! And on the morning of the 20th of Feb., her soul went out to enter upon her great reward.

Her remains was sent back to Campbell on Friday morning and the funeral was held on Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock at the German Presbyterian church. The text was "and we all do fade as a leaf" Isa. 64:6.

There were present of the children at the funeral Mrs. Belle Klophenstein of Campbell, Willie Hardy of Gage, Okla; Mrs. Viola Boyd, Cambia, Edward Hardy, Tangier, Okla., Mrs. Frances Hyden, Campbell, Marrian Hardy, Wauneta, Kans., Harry Hardy, Axtell, Neb., Miss Margaret Hardy, Campbell, Mrs. Ada Bierhaus, Culbertson, Neb., Misses Lilian, Vernie, Carrie, Eula, Dollie Hardy all of Campbell, Neb. All the children were present except Mrs. Lizzie Gilbert of Woodward, Okla., who could not be present on account of sickness in her own home. The remains were carefully laid to rest in the German Presbyterian cemetery to await the summons of the Father in the last day. She was an affectionate and devoted wife, a loving, true and dear mother and a very devout and consecrated Christian. But her work on earth was triumphantly brought to a close and she has laid down the cross to take up the crown which decked with bright stars, she will wear forevermore. May peace and comfort be with her loved ones until all shall meet in the saints eternal resting place
................G. M. Burnett, Pastor.
