Vine - At her home in the town of Warner, April 28, 1886, of that much dreaded disease, consumption, Miss Flora Vine, aged 19 years, 7 months and 14 days.
Miss Vine was born at Black River Falls, but moved to Clark County in early childhood with her parents where she has lived until her death.
Bitter are the pangs of grief caused by the death of this amiable and worthy young lady. Quiet and lady-like, she won the esteem and respect of all that knew her. Miss Flora was a universal favorite in her home, and among her friends. Her fond and loving parents have lost a dutiful daughter, her brothers a kind and affectionate sister, and her only sister, Mrs. Anderson has lost, not only her companion through childhood’s happy days, but her infant son, her only child, who died April 26. Double is the grief that falls on this bereaved family. Their funerals were held at the M. E. Church in Greenwood on Friday afternoon, April 30, and were largely attended by sympathizing friends and neighbors. Mr. G. C. Andrews’ Comforting words were appreciated by all, and the singing by the choir was grand and impressive.
One solemn feature of the funeral was the twelve ladies dressed in black and white with beautiful flowers, following the hearse to the cemetery. When the coffins were lowered and just before the burial service was read the young ladies passed around the grave and cast their flowers in, that being that last they could do for their departed friend.
The dear ones have gone
Never to come again,
We’ll miss them on and on
But our loss is their gain.
