IDLEMAN, Miss Maggie

The subject of this sketch was born February 26, 1866. She was the sixth child of Mr. and Mrs. J.R. Idleman. Two brothers and one sister older than she, and three younger brothers survive her. Being born and reared in a Christian home she early gave her heart to Jesus uniting with the Methodist Episcopal church, and consecrated her life to the service of Christ. She was not one of those members who has to be borne along by the church but contrary wise the work of the church was one of her greatest burdens. But it was a burden "not grievous to be borne" for she took great delight in doing what she could for the advancement of the Master's Kingdom. She strove to serve her Maker by helping those for whom Christ died. She was always ready to help in any church work. For many years she was teacher in the Sunday School and served as superintendent for several years. For three long weary months she was confined to her bed, and suffered more than tongue can tell. In her case it may be truly said, "She died by inches." She bore her suffering with a marked degree of patience and resignation. At first she was hopeful and anxious to recover but for several weeks previous to her death she realized that her condition was hopeless and often prayed to the Lord to come quickly. The funeral service was held on the 5th inst. and was conducted by Rev. H.C. Smith in the presence of a large audience. The speaker delivered an able discourse from II Timothy I and 12 - "For I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep that which I have committed unto Him against that day."
F.C. Rollman was undertaker. The floral offerings were numerous and beautiful.
