Death of Mrs. Jack

Another Spirit has Flown to its Happy Home Beyond the Skies

At 9:40 o'clock last night [12 Jan 1899] in the home of her mother, Mrs. E. A. DeMaret, the spirit of Mrs. Carrie DeMaret Jack took its flight of its earthly tenement toward that world of eternal day and sunshine, where joy is perpetual and sorrow unknow [sic]. Although death is common to us all, and the last debt of nature must be tendered sooner or latter [sic], the news of the lady's taking off in the fullness of her useful life will be received by her many true friends in Navasota with special marks of genuine sorrow. And the family, which is among the town's oldest inhabitants, will be the recipients of hearty and sincere sympathy in their bereavement.

Mrs. Jack was born in this county 45 years and 11 months ago, and here received her earliest instructions in the duties of life and blossomed into womanhood. She was united in married life little less than 25 years ago to Capt. Sam M. Jack and of recent times has been a resident of Velasco; of this union there survives five children, two boys and three girls, some of whom have attained their majorities, while none are babies.

The funeral will take place at 10 o'clock tomorrow evening from the home of Mrs. DeMaret, to the City cemetery. Friends and acquaintances are respectfully invited to attend.
