In Memoriam.

Mrs. Eliza Conyers, wife of Bennett Conyers, deceased, and daughter of Christopher Bowen, deceased, died June 7th, 1886.

Our beloved sister was a consistent, devoted member of the Baptist Church at Cartersville, and of the Women’s Mission Society of the same church.  She was among the first to join the society; and though aged and enfeebled, remained faithful unto death –faithful in attendance, faithful in contributions.  What a record!  Surely her absence will be noticed, her vacant seat causes our hearts a pang of sadness, yet our loss is her eternal gain.  In the translation of our sister from us unto Heaven, we feel that we have one friend less to comfort and cheer us in trouble; one less helper in church and society; one less saint to walk the earth and show forth the glory of our God.  Divine grace had prepared our dear sister for the discharge of every duty; as friend and neighbor she was sympathetic and obliging; as a mother, affectionate and devoted; as a Christian she adorned her profession by an upright, godly walk and conversation.  To live and work for the Master was the ambition of her life; and, like the psalmist of Israel, she loved the sanctuary of the Lord.  Let us cherish the memory of her virtues, imitate her example, and look hopefully forward to the everlasting reunion.  Sleep on, dear sister, until the resurrection morn, when the last trump shall shout out glad immortality, and we shall unite in ascribing everlasting praises unto the Lamb of God, our risen Redeemer.

Whereas, It has pleased our kind Father to remove our beloved sister Resolved 1st, That our missionary society has lost an earnest, faithful member, a worker in the vineyard of the Lord.
2nd That we dedicate a page of our society book to her memory.
3rd That a copy of the proceedings be tendered to her bereaved family, with the assurance of our sincere sympathy in deep affliction; and that we commend them to Him who afflicteth not willingly, but in love and mercy; that we also send a copy to the Christian Index, and to our city papers each, with request of publication.
Adopted by a meeting of the Woman’s Missionary Society, July 3rd, 1886.

Mrs. Mattie B. Milam,
Mrs. Fannie Stover,
Mrs. Janie Wilkes,
