August 14, 1931
In loving remembrance of our darling mother. Last Saturday at 4 o'clock, God called our darling mother to the beautiful city of gold, where there will be no parting, no teardrops and no heartaches. God in Heaven alone knows how we miss her sweet voice and how sad and lonely not to see her sweet face and minister to her dear broken body. We wonder how we can go on and on, how we can struggle up the steep and rugged pathway of life without her guiding hand, but can only be sustained by the help of Him who understandeth and doeth all things well As pure as the driven snow, so gentle loving and forgiving, she was our guiding star.
Our home is made sad; her vacant place can never be filled but we have the sweet assurance that she is safe in the arms of Jesus in the beautiful city of God where there will be no tear-dimmed eyes, no suffering and no farewells, we sincerely pray that we may walk in the straight and narrow way that leads to life eternal where we may be reunited and walk the golden streets hand and hand forever and forever. A member of the Christian Church, having lived a consistent member for many years, loving all as all who knew her loved her.
Funeral services were conducted in the Methodist Church by Alfred Brunk midst a large concourse of friends and acquaintances.

Though he slay me yet will I trust him.
The one that keeps our hearts from breaking
As we bend beneath the load
While our lone heart are throbbing, aching
She is resting with God.
I cannot bear to think she is sleeping
Cold and still beneath the sod.
Did I not know beyond all weeping
Safe secure she waits with God.
O Thou dear Christ the comfort giver
Love and keep us pure as she.
That when we cross death's darksome river,
We shall dwell with her and Thee.
Lord when we think of that fair city,
Where our angel daring waits,
Oh, take our broken lives in pity,
Lord, and guide us through the gates.

Her loving daughter, Yuca Gaither.
