Besides the indescribable grief to her immediate relatives, the death of this noble lady will bring sadness to many hoes in which her bounteous charity has dispelled the dark gloom of poverty and distress; to many a heart that has been healed by the balm of her sympathy; to a vast number to whom her abounding love and wise counsel were health in sickness, light in darkness, fortitude in pain, solid comfort in bitter adversity. To alleviate human suffering seemed to be Mrs. LIPSCOMB's chosen mission and intense delight. At home she was an amiable wife and devoted mother. The ornament of a meek and quiet spirit was the attraction which monopolized the admiration of strangers, and cemented the hearts of her loved ones so softly and firmly as that the dread secrets of the tomb and the withering torch of grief can never break asunder nor crumble away.
'Blessed are the dead that die in the Lord. They do rest from their labors, and their works do follow them.'"
