|Silvina Green Boyd
November 20, 1874–June 28, 1911
|She was married to C. D. Boyd March 13, 1894.
She was a member of the Olin U.B. church. During the last two years of her life she was much afflicted, and finally resulted in tuberculosis, and not withstanding all was done for her that could be done, the deadly disease took her away at her home at about 2 o'clock last Wednesday afternoon. But during her long period of suffering she bore it all with a bright hope of a home in heaven. Several weeks ago her pastor visited her and found her strong in the faith of Jesus Christ. She said if she must die, she was ready and willing her only regret was leaving her loved ones on earth, but knew they would meet loved ones in heaven.
Sometime before dying, she made arrangements for her funeral, the text she selected being "Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil, for thou art with me, they rod and thy staff shall comfort me." The songs she selected were "Rock of Ages," "Jesus Lover of My soul" and "We'll never say Goodbye in Heaven."
She leaves to mourn her departure her husband, one son, her father and mother, five sisters and two brothers, and many friends who have known her all her life.
The funeral services were held at the M.E. church last Friday afternoon, conducted by the Rev. S. Hobson, and the remains were laid away in the Olin cemetery.
