God, in his wisdom, has called from our midst another precious one, it being Mrs. Nettie Champ wife of [William] Wallace Champ, who died at her home near Burney on Tuesday morning, March 6, 1888, of consumption, after long and patient suffering. Nettie was an affectionate and devoted wife, and those who knew her best loved her most. Death seems always sad to us as did it to her.

While in the spring time of life and surrounded by friends and relatives, Nettie’s young soul took its flight to Heaven, yet we must not be selfish in this for “God’s will be done.” The decease was the second daughter of Samuel H. Ewing, and was born March 24, 1866, and was married to Wallace Champ, Aug. 10, 1887. She united with the Christian Church at Hartsville in 1886, to which she has ever been a true and faithful member. [Interment in Mowrey Cemetery].
