Obituary: The Death Angel with his mighty reaper flew into our midst on June 22, 1917, and took for his victim the beloved daughter of W. A. Douglas and wife of Wildersville. Carrie was born April 1, 1891, and departed this life June 22, 1917, aged 26 years. Carrie had been ill for some time, yet her death was unexpected and came as a shock to the community. About a week before she died she was taken with typhoid fever which soon ended her life. She leaves an aged father and mother, two brothers and one sister. She professed faith in Christ at an early age and united with the Methodist Church at Rock Springs where she remained a true and faithful member until the end. She was laid to rest in the Rock Springs Cemetery, services being conducted by her pastor, Rev. Guthrie. To the bereaved family we would say, weep not for Carrie, our loss is her eternal gain.
