The Passing of Mrs. R. Blair

Death of Esteemed Woman Occurred Sunday Night

The death of Mrs. Rufus Blair, whose critical illness was mentioned in The Post last week, occurred Sunday night at the family home, corner of Fifth and Clara streets.

Teresa (Louisa) Watson was born in Polk County, Missouri, Feb. 14, 1816.  She was united in marriage with Rufus Blair Dec. 12, 1866, and had she lived just one month more, would have rounded out fifty years of wedded life and brought the golden wedding anniversary.

She confessed her faith in Christ at the age of twelve years and has ever since lived the consistent and devoted life of the Christian.  Funeral services were conducted at the home Tuesday morning, Nov. 14, Rev. M. Noble giving the funeral sermon from the text found in Rev. 14:13.  A fitting tribute to her memory was the large gathering of sympathizing friends.  She was universally esteemed and the influence of her Christian life and example leaves a deep impression for good upon the community where she had lived so long.  In her passing from earth a bereaved husband and niece deeply mourn their loss.  The floral tributes were numerous and beautiful.
