She early united with the church and had been a faithful and consistent Christian, and when her later sickness came she waited with faith and a childlike trust for the coming messenger which should bear her forth to a more glorious existence.

To her untimely, who is fit to die,
The less of this cold world, the more of heaven,
The briefer life, the earlier immortality"
