co-laborer Mrs. Sarah Newbold, a faithful member of the Ladies' Aid Society LaGrange; therefore
be it Resolved, That we as a Society are stricken with sincere sorrow, because we shall no
more have the helpful presence of her lovely Christian character in our meetings, yet we bow in
humble submission to the will of God.

in which she lived, have lost a true friend.

doeth all things well.

Death has again invaded our ranks and has taken from us one of our most faithful friends and
On Thursday evening, September 27, 1900, after a few days of intense suffering, the angel of
death set free the immortal spirit of Mrs. Sarah A Newbold.
Sister Newbold had been a memberof the M.E. Church, South, for about forty years, and in her
death the church has lost one of its truest and best members. Her devotion to her church and
her God was beautiful. She was ever ready to perform any service that was required of her.
Sister Newbold left a husband, two sons and a daughter to mourn her departure, but they sorrow
not as those having no hope, for her title to her heavenly mansion was clear. May her loved ones
follow in her footsteps as she followed Christ and, finally, may there be a family reunion on that
bright celestial shore.
