Mrs. Wm Hatfield Blanche McHenry was born in Harrison County, MO, March 9, 1880 departed this life November 8, 1903, aged 23 years, 7 months, 29 days. She was married January 29, 1899 to William R. Hatfield. She leaves a husband, one little son, Harold, father, mother, two sisters and four brothers to mourn her loss. years ago she made a profession of religion. Her faith in God was so simple, her hope in God's gift of eternal life so firm, that the building of christian character was a structure so faultless as to be almost envied by those who knew her. When the summons came, and she knew that she would soon leave this world for the mansions of the final faithful, her sould bounded with ecstatic joy, and she plead with the sorrowing loved ones about her bedside not to weep for her. She requested that a number of favorite hymns be sung, one of them being "Nearer My God to Thee." After making all arrangements for her funeral and saying the last goodbyes she exclaimed, "Oh, everything looks so beautiful. I can see the Savior.: She was no more, for the Father had translated her soul to the joys of his presence. The funerl services, as she requested, were conducted by the Rev. Hornaday, pastor ot the M. E. Church of Beaver City, at the Advent Church. Her remains were interred in the Beaver City cemetary. All join in hearfelt sympathy to the bereaved ones.
