Mrs. Smith had a wide circle of friends who will greatly miss her. The illness which caused her death was less than two years of duration, during which time she suffered much and bore it all in a most beautifully patient manner,. To her friends and loved ones she always radiated an atmosphere of optimism, hopefulness and good cheer. All was done that hands of love could do, but in vain. The dreadful malady caused the setting of her evening star years before the allotted span of life.
