Inez Becker obituary

contributed by Anne LaMont

(The Middleburgh News)

     It is with deep regret we announce the death of Inez Becker, youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Becker, of the town of Berne. Miss Becker was a member of the Christian Sunday School, and was held in the highest esteem by all who knew her. Little Inez was kind, amiable to all. The many recitations she rendered in the church were highly appreciated. She will be greatly missed by her many friends.
     The funeral services were conducted by the Rev. T. N. Davis, assisted by Rev. C. Wilson at the Christian church in the 11th inst., in the presence of a large and sympathizing congregation.

     "A precious one from us is gone,
        A voice we loved is stilled;
      A place is vacant in our home
         Which never can be filled.

      Dear Inez, we miss her smiling face
         He fond and loving care;
      The Home is vacant without her,
         We miss her everywhere.

     We sympathize with the afflicted family and pray God to comfort and sustain them in their great affliction.
