To the Editor of The Lenoir Topic :

Lucinda the wife of J. W. Shell departed this life near Lenoir, Caldwell county, North Carolina, March the 19th, 1891 at the age of seventy years and six months. Their marriage was tho second with each of them, which was continued forty-three years two months and six days. As a wife, step-mother and mother she had few equals. Her natural temperament was that of tenderness and affection for her family and friends. She loved everybody with deep, earnest, christian affection. Her life was well tempered wiih the graces of the Christian religion. She was for forty-five years an acceptable member of thr M. E. Church, South. She was a yery faithful worker in the church of her choice. Preaching, prayer and class-meetings were her delight. But her greatest enjoyments were at her home with her husband and family. She was for years a subject of severe affliction, but was never known to murmur or complain. Her death was triumphant. While she was leaning her head on the bosom of her husband, without a move of her body or a struggle she ceased to breath without scarcely any one knowing when she drew her last breath. O how sweetly this good woman passed away to a better world. Her funeral was conducted by the writer in Littlejohn church and her body interred in the Cemetery. It was hard to give her up. But our loss is her everlasting gain. N. H. Kaylor.
