Mrs. J.C. Maxey passed away at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Oscar Smith, here on February 25th, at the age of 89 years. She was much beloved by the people here. Surely a mother in Israel has gone to her reward. So sweet to think of her passing to the great beyond where there is no sickness nor sorrow, but eternal rest and peace. May this be a comfort to the sorrowing relatives and cheer them from day to day to think they can go to be with grandma when they too shall be called to their reward. She can't come back to you, dear friends, but you can go to her.

She is resting in quiet repose,

Unbroken by the last of foes;

Asleep in Jesus, blessed sleep,

From which none ever awakes to weep.

She was laid to rest a Johnson church on the afternoon of the 26th amidst a mound of beautiful flowers - A Friend.
