Death Claimed Mrs Loop.

Mrs. Loop, wife of W. W. Loop, passed peacefully to the beyond at the Main Hotel here Tuesday afternoon at 1:10 o'clock. She had been seriously ill for more than three weeks and suffered untold pain until death came to her relief. She was 76 years old, and she and her husband had lived happily together for more than half a century, spending most of their lives at Chatfield. Mrs. Loop is survived by her husband and 5 children, John Loop of west Texas, D. M. Loop and Mrs. Halbert of Rice, Mrs. W. C. Garner of Chatfield, and Mrs. Dr. Harper, of Corsicana, and they were all at her bedside when she breathed her last breath.

She had lived a devoted Christian life, having been for many years a member of the Christian church, and has now gone to reap her reward above.

As the death dew gathered over her marble brow, around her bedside gathered her boys and girls--always boys and girls to her, though now grown to mature years with boys and girls around their own fire side. The life so long interwoven with theirs, with tearful eyes they watched as it, slowly, but surely passed over. The boys and girls that gathered around the bed of their dying mother and so bravely fought the Death Angel, long ago passed out from the little home circle. Business cares and their own home circle have encroached upon their time, may have robbed mother of their companionship, but she was ever just the same; rejoicing at their success and grieving at their misfortune. We know that years hence of the memory of her unselfish devotion will make them better men and women. Rev. Henry held a short service at the hotel here at one o'clock and her remains were followed to Chatfield by a large procession. Funeral Services were held at Chatfield in the Christian Church, conducted by Rev. V. I. Stirman, of Palmer, after which she was buried in the Chatfield cemetery. The Rustler extends sympathy to the husband and children.
