Good Woman Passes to Her Reward
Mrs. S.C. Alexander died at the family home in Emory about 10:30 o’clock Tuesday morning, after a few days illness, and her remains were interred in the City Cemetery about 3:30 o’clock, Wednesday afternoon, Rev. C.M. Martin conducting the funeral service in the First Baptist church in the presence of a large crowd of friends and acquaintances. Mrs. Alfa Omega Snow Alexander was born in Kaufman County June 25th, 1865, later residing at Wills Point for a number of years before moving to Emory in 1882, residing here since that time. She was married to Mr. S.C. Alexander of Emory November 19th, 1901. She became a Christian in early life and up to a few years ago was an energetic and consistent worker in Sunday school and all charitable enterprises fostered in the country. She was an earnest personal worker and there are many throughout this vicinity who will remember her for the efforts put forth to help mankind and to further the religious interest, and the kindly influence will live long after she has passed on to her reward. Mrs. Alexander had been confined to her home for about four years, where she lead a quiet but consecrated life, always letting her light shine and never missing an opportunity to endeavor to further the religious interest. She is survived by her husband, who has the sympathy of neighbors and friends in his bereavement.
