Narcissa M. Robinson

Died of consumption on Friday evening Sept. 19th Miss Narcissa M. Robinson, aged 26 years, 4 months and 8 days. Her life, though brief, had not been uneventful nor unsuccessful. She had taught 26 terms of school and by her zeal and kindness had won the love of her pupils and the esteem and confidence of the people. Miss Robinson took sick on the 29th of last April and did not go out of the house until her death. Marian, as she was mostly called, was an earnest student, a dutiful daughter and a faithful friend. She will be missed by a large circle of friends with whom she was a favorite. She was a firm believer in the Bible and taught it in her school. She died saying that she was ready and willing to go as she wished to meet her sister and brother whom a few years ago she followed to their last resting place. Her funeral was preached at Wheeler M. E. church by Rev. Loder, pastor. Her remains were followed by a long concourse of relatives and friends to their last resting place in the cemetery at Valparaiso.

In Memoriam.
Dearest Marian, thou hast left us
And thy loss we deeply feel,
But we know 'tis God bereft us --
He can all our sorrows heal.

But 'tis hard to lose thee, darling,
Hard to give thee to the tomb,
And our hearts are sad and lonely
While our home is filled with gloom.

Can we say, "'Tis well, our Father?"
Can we calmly give her up?
Must we learn the bitter lesson?
Can we drink the dreadful cup?

Yes, 'tis well; since he hath called thee
From a world of sin and pain,
And when life with us is ended
We may hope to meet again.

Yes, again we'll meet our dear one
In the land beyond the blue,
Where no storms of earth can gather
She will live her life anew.

Father, mother, long will miss thee,
Dearest brothers drop a tear,
When at the eave they cross the threshold
And behold no Marian near.

And the friends who long have loved thee
Oft will grieve shat thou art gone;
In their pastimes they will miss thee --
Miss thy smiles and loving tones.

Thou wilt surely be remembered
By thy children thou hast taught;
They will often think of Marian --
Often of their teacher talk.

Thou hast yielded up the scepter,
Laid each earthly burden down
At the foot of Christ our Savior,
And hast gone to wear a crown.

Storms may gather round they dwelling
But cannot disturb thy rest,
For the soul we loved immortal,
Is with angels and the blest.

Now, farewell, we'll not forget thee,
Though on earth we meet no more;
To our hearts we hope to press thee
In the bright forevermore.
