In Memory of Anna Gandy

The Clarksburg Telegram., April 26, 1901

“Leaves have their time to fall, And flowers to wither at the north wind’s breath And stars so set–but all Thou hast all seasons for thine own O death !

“Youth and the opening rose May look like things too glorious to decay And smile at thee, but thou are not one of those That wait the ripened bloom to seize their prey.”


Little Anna Gandy died April 23, after a lingering illness of several weeks, Anna was a bright, good and obedient child. Though young in years she manifested a desire to learn of her Creator. This is evinced by the fact that she requested as a Christmas gift a bible, a present which few children of her age would have appreciated.

She was a great comfort to her parents and why God in His infinite wisdom saw fit to take her from them is indeed a mystery.

Friends and relations from other cities attending the funeral were Mrs. William Bagnell and Miss Anna Boehner, of Lewiston Pa., Miss Flora Richards and Mrs. Flodie Garnell, of Cumberland, Md., Miss Icie Taylor, Mrs. Floyd Utterbach and Dr. H. P. Richards, of Grafton, and Mr. and Mrs. Isaac Klein of Weston.
