Sarah Hilde obituary
Pioneer Mother Died
Call not back the dear departed
Anchored safe where storms are
On the borderland we left her,
There to meet and part no more,
When we leave this world of trials,
When we leave this world of care,
We will find our loved one waiting,
In our Fathers mansion fair.
