  • Notes 
    • A GOOD WOMAN PASSES TO HER REWARD, RESIDED HERE FORTY-FOUR YEARS

      Emma Wall White Lasbury was born at Whetstone, near London, England, April 30, 1828. After a long life, characterized by sunshine, happiness, and good cheer, she passed into the Paradise of God, on Sunday, December 5, 1909, at 1:30A.M.

      Miss Emma Wall White was united in marriage with Mr. Thomas Lasbury, May 18, 1858. After spending seven and one half years of their married life in England, Mr. and Mrs. Lasbury came to the United States of America, December 1865. For 44 years they made their home in Griggsville, Illinois. Mrs. Lasbury enjoyed the very best of health until July 1909, when she was stricken with the disease which never loosened grip until she had passed beyond the bounds of mortal ailments. Kind and faithful friends and her beloved physician did all within human power to alleviate her sufferings. During these trying months she was exceedingly patient and always, endeavoring to speak words of kindness to cheer the hearts of anxious friends. Mrs. Lasbury was a devoted communicant member of St. James Church, Griggsville, Ill. She found her prayer book a source of great comfort and consolation, even to the end of the journey she prized the leaves of the well worn comforter, when too weak to hold the entire book. Because of age the book was in leaves and she used the book as long as she could see.

      Mrs. Lasbury was best known in her home. She quietly but truly lived her religion there. It is a thing of beauty and a joy forever to exemplify true character in the home. In this respect, Mrs. Lasbury will bear the closest scrutiny. In her death a loving couple have been separated, but it is only for a little while. The fidelity of that noble husband and wife is an example in this age that is worthy of limitation. May the strong arm of the Lord be around the living husband and may the sweet remembrance of true love comfort him. Such home life has large meaning in this world. May the Church of Christ be instrumental in building up and sending forth many persons with good strong pure lives. People of good character are held in everlasting remembrance. To such person death is but a sleep as Christ has taken away the sting of death and the power of the grave. In death the Christian simply chooses the ties to the things of this world, and opens them to nobler--and inexperencable and full of delight. The grass becomes a place of sweet rest for peacemakers in the sight of the Lord in the death of a saint. The wife, mother, grandmother and friend has passed on but, the memory of her best practical virtues live and will still live. She fell asleep in the faith of Christ and the body of the blessed resurrection.

      To mourn the loss very deeply, Mrs. Lasbury leaves a beloved husband, four children, Thomas Lasbury Jr. of St. Louis, Mo., Mrs. C.H. McConnell of Peoria, Ill., Mrs. M.H. Rodway, and Mrs. M.M. Lasbury of Griggsville, nine grandchildren and seven great grandchildren, also two sisters, Mrs. Eggar and Miss White of Wimbledon, England. Dear Friends fix your hopes in the Christ she loved and trusted.

      The funeral services were held in the home of her daughter, Mrs. M.H. Rodway, Griggsville, Tuesday, December 7, 1909, 2 P.M. The Rev. George E. Young, rector of St. James Church, Griggsville, Ill. read the comforting burial service of the church. The remains were interred in Griggsville cemetery to await the resurrection morn. May she rest in peace.
