A member of the Presbyterian Church, she was a devoted Christian and possessed a faith which enabled her to meet calmly, all the afflictions which were allotted her in her long and useful life. Almost all her life was spent in affluent circumstances, and it was ever her pleasure to relive suffering of those were under her notice. A modest, pure Christian woman, she was eminently endowed with that faith that suffereth long and is patient.
