Called to Rest
Mrs. Minnie J. Durant Crosses Over the River to Rest Eternal
One of the hardest trials of this life is the final parting with a loved wife and mother-- and such a one was that when Lafayette Durant, postmaster at Cosby, and his three children, Willis of Cosby, and Mrs. F. L. Hug and Mrs. Nellie E. Wakefield, daughters, both of this city, were on Saturday obliged to give up the one who held the place of love and honor in their hearts.
Mrs. Minnie J. Durant was sixty-four years of age when she was called upon to leave those she loved. For over two generations she had walked hand-in-hand with the husband whom she had chosen in the days of her youth. She was a gentle Christian woman who believed in her God, her family and the Golden Rule, which she strictly adhered to. The funeral occurred from the church in Cosby where she worshipped, on Monday, and a great throng of those who knew and loved her followed the remains to their final resting place.
