Mary Frances Evans
A lily of a day
On January 11, 1927, little Frances Evans, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. T. Evan, Jr., passed away at the home of her grandparents at Mt. Pleasant, after a few days illness. While only five years old, Frances stayed with us long enough to endear herself, not only to her family but to all who knew her. She was an extremely bright and happy child and during the short illness prior to her passing the patience and fortitude with which she bore her suffering were mute evidence of the character that would have been hers had it been willed that she reach womanhood. Truly "of such are the Kingdom of Heaven."
Her passing was so sudden that we cannot adjust ourselves to the fact that she will not be with us again in the flesh. She leaves a vacant place in the family circle that can never be filled.
Besides her father and mother and little brother, she leaves her grandparents and numerous other relatives and friends to mourn her untimely passing. To them we extend our sincere love and sympathy.
