The funeral was held on Tuesday last, from her late residence. Nellie was born and has always lived in Holmesville, except while attending Pulaski Academy or was away teaching. Last winter, while teaching in the Joseph Manwarren district, she took the measles and was obliged to leave her school. When nearly well she had a relapse, from which she never recovered. She was a girl of rare amiability. Everybody loved her, for she was lovely. All her life, nearly, she had been a member of the M. E. Sunday school. In her home she was always a kind and helpful daughter and loving sister. Parents, sisters and brother, friends, teachers, schoolmates and pupils will long and lovingly remember dear Nellie Erskine, who is now, we trust and have reason to believe, “safe in the arms of Jesus.”
