JONES, Miss Ruth Orpha

Ruth Orpha, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Jones, was called to her Heavenly home last Thursday, Aug. 3-1911. With the bereaved parents we weep; but not without hope; for we know if Christ was dead and is now alive so shall we live again in the next world. Ruth was called from her home at the early and tender age of 7 months and 4 days.... The little form, the wreaths of flowers, the hymns that were sung, the words that were said by the kind pastor, the little white clad pall bearers and the tiny grave in the Hamill cemetery all have put a feeling in our hearts that cannot be removed. Mr. and Mrs. Jones are both members of the Christian church and are widely known all over Blaine and Kitzmiller. They give kindness where it is needed and therefore receive kindness in their great sorrow. They have five children in Heaven waiting for them and one son and one daughter still to bless them. Namely, Ira and Georgia. May we all live so as to meet our loved ones there, for we will know that little Ruth is there for she was taken before the shame of sin could snatch her. In that harmonious song that was sung while the Angels were bearing our baby home.... The pall bearers were dressed in pure white and were all sweet little children, making it more touching, they are as follows: Isabel Tibbits, Lila Lemaster, Iva Murray, Leah Garner. Little Ruth was laid to rest to wake in an unending realm of sweet peace and harmony where all is happyness and no sorrow. May God bless you, my dear friends.
