THE BLOOMFIELD NEWS, Bloomfield, Greene County, Indiana, Thursday, January 31, 1924, Volume XLVIII, Page 5, Columns 3 & 4, “DEATHÂ’S HARVEST. WADE.

Sabina MCWHIRTER was born in Jackson Township March 12, 1845, and passed out of this earthly life at her late home in South Bloomfield, January 21, 1924, aged seventy-nine years, nine months and nine days.

She was married to Andrew WADE on November 20, 1859. To this union eleven children were born, five of whom, with the father and husband, preceded her to the spirit world: Robert Bar, Luther Dow and Millie, died in infancy, and Emma and Rosa died after reaching womanhood. The surviving children are: Mrs. Lizzie MITCHELL, Bunion and Noah WADE, of Park; Henry, of Oklahoma; John Cullen, of Bedford, and Walter, of this place.

She was married the second time to a Mr.{William G.} HUTTON, of Lyons, who lived only a few years.

At an early age she united with the Methodist church, but after moving to Koleen, and while her children were with her, she and her husband united with the Christian church under the able presentation of God'’s word by the Rev. George T. SMITH, and was active in church work and as long as she was able she has given her support to the church near her.

Mrs. WADE was one of the pioneer mothers of Greene County, often accompanied the Psalms of David with the sound of the weaver’s shuttle, for she lived in those days when men and women faced trials and endured hard hips in blazing the way to more comfortable and luxurious living for us at the present time. It hardly suffices to say she was industrious. She was a very great worker; and as doubt in caring for her eleven children she would sometimes find her means betting low; but back of such times as these we believe she found Him who owns the cattle on a thousand hills, and out of the palm of whose hand all the fowls of heaven park their feed, and who is a husband is the widow and a father to the fatherless.

The thirty-first chapter of Proverbs very accurately describes the subject before us."“Who can estimate the worth of a good mother." A Spanish proverb says: "An ounce of mother is worth a pound of clergy" Henry Ward BEECHER said: "The mother’s heart is the child’s best school room." Napoleon said: "he future dusting of the child is always the work of the mother." ” The greatest men the world has ever known have attributed much of their success in the teaching of their mother. Your mother lived to speak the names of eleven children, twenty-seven grandchildren and twenty-eight great-grandchildren, and will continue to bless the world just as you emulate her teachings.

"There are words that speak of quenchless love, which burns in the hearts we cherish, and accents that tell of a friendship proved that will never blight or perish. There are soft words murmured by dear lips" — far richer than any other, but the sweetest word that ear hath heard, is the blessed name of mother.

The funeral services were conducted by Elder Quimby FERGUSON, of Kirby, at the M. E. church in South Bloomfield on Tuesday January 23. The interment was in the cemetery at Walnut Grove, south of Park. ALICE MANSFIELD.
