Another well known footfall is missed; another family altar is mantled in mourning. Yesterday morning, March 18, just as the sun was shedding his silver rays of light on the eastern horizon, God called away the gentle spirit of Amanda Jane Stinecipher from earthly suffering and sorrow to that home that awaits His children.
Sister Amanda, the daughter of L.J. and Mary Tredway was born March 4, 1877, married A. J. Stinecipher, Jan. 5, 1893. She gave herself to Jesus at the age of 15-joined the church in Oct. 1905, to which she was faithful and true till her death, which occurred March 18, 1917, at 5 o’clock a.m. at the age of 40 years and 14 days. She has left surviving her, a husband and 2 children, an aged mother, 1 sister and 5 brothers.
Sister Amanda is not dead but sleepeth.
