Hooper, Mrs. William, Kidsville, NC, Obituary, 1897, Raleigh, NC Gazette

Hooper Mrs. William Obituary 1897 Raleigh NC Gazette

Mrs. William Hooper, of Kidsville, departed this life February 19th. She was a faithful member of the M. E. Church.
She left a good testimony behind. She bid farewell to her many friends, and asked them to meet her in heaven. She is not dead, but only asleep.
“Asleep in Jesus ! blessed sleep,
From which none ever wake to weep !
A calm and undisturbed repose,
Unbroken by the last of foes.”

The bereaved family have our heartfelt sympathies. She cannot return to them, but they can go to her.

A few more years shall roll,
A few more seasons come ;
And we shall be with those that rest,
Asleep within the tomb.
