Indiana Clark Boyd


Indiana Clark Rogers was born in Laporte county Ind. Augsut 4, 1847. Was married to Dr. Isaac Boyd June 1, 1869, and died at her home in Valparaiso, Ind., Dec. 1, 1881, aged 34 years, 2 months and 26 days.

For eighteen years she had been a worthy member of the Christian Church, constantly striving to make her life all that a christian life should be. I knowing how to live, she was well prepared to die, and can say, as she did not many days since, "I'm not afraid of death."

She leaves a husband and two little boys to mourn her absence as only they can mourn who realize that their dearest earthly friend has been taken away from them, and that the home circle has been broken.

Her life was beautiful, and in the social circle, her quiet ways, and devotion to the right can never be forgotten.

We "mourn with those who mourn, and weep with those who weep," but faith binds us look unto Him who doeth all things well, and relying upon his promises, we know that "There's a land that is fairer than day." In that land friends shall be reunited, hands shall be clasped in joy unspeakable, old sorrows shall be forgotten, and we "shall go no more out" forever. Crosses here, but crowns there, for "To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne."

We watch, and wait, and pray that when the summons comes to us, we too may be ready, and that our rest may be as peaceful as that of our sister.
