Young, Nellie Gibson

Just as the dawn of an earthly day, while all nature slumbered and slept, and the stars in the sky their vigil kept, the spirit of her we loved so well was wafted into the “Great Beyond,” where there is no more sickness and sorrow, pain or death, and meetings and partings are no more. Nellie Gibson Young, daughter of W. S. and K. A. Gibson, was born at Scary, W. Va., October 1, 1865, and passed away at her home near Crooksville, Ohio March 18, 1931, age 65 years, 4 months and 29 days. When but a young girl she was united with the M. E. Church and was baptized in that Faith. On June 26, 1880 she was united in marriage to V. A. Young. To this union was born seven children, two of whom have preceded her to the other world. William of the home, Frank of Ward, W Va., Howard of Chillicothe, Ohio: Maggie Croy and Burton Burley of Crooksville, Ohio; together with her husband and grandchildren and great grandchildren, four brothers, two sisters, and other relatives and friends, are left to mourn the loss of a loving and indulgent wife, mother, grandmother, friend and neighbor. Her last illness was a few weeks duration, and bourne with untold patience and faith, knowing the Master would soon relieve her suffering. While surrounded by loved ones, willing to do anything that her life might only be spared, but her spirit took its flight; but not until she had called them each one to her and asked them to meet her on the “Other Shore,” where there is no more parting.
They never quite leave us;
Our friend who have passed/
From the shadows of earth
To the Sunlight above;
A thousand sweet memories
Are holding them fast
To the places they’ve blest
Their presence and love. A Neighbor.
