[Point View News Column]

Rubey, eldest daughter of A. S. and Jessie Ackerman was born Aug. 9, 1900, and died of throat trouble Nov. 25, 1907, aged 7 years, 3 months and 14 days. The remains were laid to rest in the Point View cemetery, the following day, Rev. Loren Kemp conducting the services.

Little Rubey is dead. She was so sweet and winsome and frail, sent to brighten the home for so short a time. It’s hard to understand why she should have been called to that better land, when the world hath such need of such a woman as she promised to be. We know not why but its God’s will. If we could push aside the gate of death and for one instant see beyond, we would then be satisfied to have our darling in that bright home.

To the bereaved parents, brother and baby sister we can offer no better consolation save she is not lost but gone before.
