Miss Scina Champ, daughter of Robert Champ, of Burney, Ind., died of typhoid fever on last Monday [March 30, 1887]. She had only been sick for about fifteen days. She was fifteen years of age and a member of the Mission Baptist church, of Burney, having joined last winter under the preaching of W. A. Pavey.
During her sickness she exhibited great faith in God’s promise and spent much time in sacred song. The anxious parents and friends crowded around her, but were powerless to prevent the angels from claiming her as one of their future companions. She leaves behind her a memory fragrant with all that is beautiful and ennobling. Her parents have the sympathy of the entire neighborhood. [Interment in Mowrey Cemetery]
