Death of Mrs. Katherine BERESFORD.
The trumpet of the Angel of Death has sounded and a beloved wife and mother has answered the call of Almighty God.
After a short illness, suffered with resignation and submission to the Holy will of God and strengthened by all comforts of her Holy Religion, Mrs. Katherine Beresford passed away from this world on Tuesday, February 20, to receive at the hands of the Saviour the reward of Eternal Life.
She was born in the state of Alabama in 1852, from good Christian parents who shortly after moved to the state of Missouri. During the days of her youth she eagerly learned the lessons of piety and religion given her by virtuous parents, whose sacred memory lingered in her mind to the end.
She was married at Sheldon, Mo., in October 1888, to William Beresford, a worthy son of the Emerald Isle, under whose guidance and protection she came to Oklahoma with her young family in 1900, where they located on a Deer Creek bottom farm, ten miles northwest of Edmond.
Three children were born to the happy parents, one of whom died in infancy. During the years of thier married life her only aim was the faithful performance of her duties to her husband and the truly Christian education of her children.
Free from all selfish motives, she lived only for the happiness and comfort of those who surrounded her, and the high principles, which constituted her rule of life, were as a shining light and example for all in whose midst she was dwelling.
The funeral service took place on Thursday, Feburary 22, in St. Patrick's church, Lockridge, Okla., where, in the simplicity of the sacred walls of God's temple, she loved to thank Him for the benefits received and in fervent prayer expose to Him the desires of her heart.
In the presence of a great number of relativess and friends she was laid to rest in the cemetery adjoining the church.
One brother of the deceased, Mr. James H. Hogan, and her only sister, Mr. T. W. Hatfield, were prevented from
attending the funeral.
Those present were: Messrs. Daniel and Philip Hogan of Missouri and Mr. John V. Hogan from near Edmond.
In the great and irreparable loss sustained by the bereaved husband and children and relatives, we offer them our sincere and heartfelt sympathy, while we feel confident that the dear friend has left us only to be united with her God in the
end less joys of Heaven.
