Vine, Flora #1 (1866 - 1886)







----Source: CLARK COUNTY REPUBLICAN PRESS (Neillsville, Wis.) 05/06/1886

Vine, Flora (14 SEP 1866 - 28 APR 1886)

Died, at her home in the town of Warner, Clark County, of that much dreaded disease, consumption, Miss Flora Vine, aged 19 years, 7 moths 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 ladylike, she won the esteem and respect of all who knew her. Miss Flora was a universal favorite at 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, 1886. 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 30th, 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 young ladies dressed in black and white with beautiful flowers, following the hearse to the cemetery where 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 the last they could do for their departed friends.
