FELTON, Cordelia P. TILLMAN – In Memory of Mrs. James Felton – Our beloved mother and friend fell asleep in Jesus December 18, 1905 at 11:30 a.m. after suffering for six weeks very severely, but she bore her afflictions with patience and was ready to lay down this body of mortality and ready to put on immortality. She had builded on the firm foundation, even Christ Jesus our Lord. She professed faith in Christ at the age of 14 years, and united with the Missionary Baptist church and lived a devoted life until the end.

She was loved by all who knew her, and no one ever dared point the finger of scorn at her every day walk. She is survived by one son and four daughters and her companion. We sigh and ask who will take Grandma’s place. It’s vacant.

Who is worthy? If we are not worthy let us try to emulate her life, who has not heard her life, who has not heard her say, “I have been trying to serve the Lord for over 50 years and I am not tired yet,” but it seems to the writer that she was serving Him with all her mind and strength. If this dear old mother could work so long, can’t we, oh let us try, but she was not a Peter but she was a John. When trials and afflictions come she stayed close to her Lord. Dear children, take your mothers advise and meet her in the Glory beyond. And friends she has advised you: accept it. There wasn’t a time when we, both saint and sinner, minister or layman, if we went to her for advise but what we received encouragement. May God help us to follow in her steps and meet her in Heaven. – F.C.S.
