She professed faith in Christ at Somerset, Ky., in 1903 and joined the M. E. Church and left her membership at Spring City. She never came in too late at night for Family Prayer. I would to God that all our homes had time to pray at night. Her father was a M. E. Circuit rider and in the fall, before his death, he rode horseback from his home near Burrville to Maryville to be at annual Conference and two weeks before her death, she walked about two miles to hear the gospel preached. Mrs. ASHE was loved by all who knew her and was laid to rest in the Sunbright Cemetery beneath a mound of beautiful flowers. The funeral was conducted by the writer. [Signed] Rev. D. A. SPESSARD.
