Saccarappa, October 14th, 1873, Mrs. Elizabeth, wife of Daniel Rounds of Saco,
aged 47 years, 7 months, 24 days.
In noticing the death of Mrs. Rounds we can but feel that it deserves more than a
passing notice. She was a member of the Methodist church in good standing and by
her Christian kindness endeared herself to a large circle of friends and relatives with
whom she was on the most intimate terms; as a wife and mother she was all and
everything to her husband and children; she was ever faithful to her household and
although she was for many years deprived of the privilege of attending to the wants
of her family by a long and severe illness, yet their grief shown that her labor was
appreciated; as a Christian none who knew her could for a moment doubt her sincerity
and devotion; she was all her heavenly Father saw fit to lay upon her. Her record is on
high where she will be with Jesus until the trumpet shall sound and death and the grave
deliver up their dead and the righteous receive immortality. She lived a humble Christian
life here and will receive her reward when Jesus comes to be glorified by all them that
loved Him, and while those who held her most dear mourn their great loss they can but feel
comforted with the thought that while they bear the cross she wears the crown. M. H.
wears the crown. M.H.
While in this vale of life and sorrow
She felt her Father's promise sure,
And asked for faith to be more stronger
That she might all her pains endure.
