STROTHER, Mary J. Frye

On the 11th of November 1912, I was called to the bedside of my mother, who was supposed to be dying, weeping around her stood four of her daughters and a loving friend ready to give any comfort that was possible for loving hands to render. As I approached, she was asked if she knew me, she opened her eyes and said it is John, with the same sweet smile that she always greeted me, and at once asked about our welfare. Her very words and smile for the time being drove back our tears. And I thought as I stood helpless before her, "Oh mother, have you still the same magic power to dry tears, being so near deaths door".
Sixty two years before she had given me the name she loved so well, and when I was fretful, sang to me " Hush my babe, lie still and slumber, holy angels guard thy bed" The same song, and many others of like nature she sang to all her children, and spent sleepless nights to comfort them. How could they help but love her and strive to meet her in heaven. At midnight she began to breathe slower and 10 minutes later ceased to breathe at all. It was then for the first time we knew what it is to be without a mother, and thus it will continue while bed time, meal time, Thanksgiving time, Christmas time, birthday time, and many other joyful times return we will be sadly reminded that mother is not with us, yet thankful to believe that she is with the angels and disembodied spirits.
Mother, the subject of this sketch, was Mary J. Strother, widow of Wm. H. Strother, died Nov 12, 1912, at the home of Mrs. Nancy J. Shank, of Burlington, Mineral county, W. Va. Being at the time of her death 82 years, 10 months, 17 days old. She was a daughter of John and Catharine Frye, whose maiden name was McNemar. Mother had two sisters and two brothers, Ann E. Lahman, Eliza C. Snider, Wm. Baker-Frye, and Henry Westfall Frye. She being next to the oldest, yet last to answer the great roll call. She was married to Wm. H. Strother of Tom's Brook, Va. when 19 years old, and together they lived happily for 35 years, and to this union there were born 9 children, Jno H. Strother, of Medley, Rev. Wm. B. Strother, deceased,  Geo. W. Strother, who died when an infant, Ann C. Webb, of Williamsport, Nancy J. Shank, of Burlington, Mary M. and Elizabeth G. Strother, of the Glen View hotel, Eliza B. Strother, deceased, and Emma V. Inskeep, of Martin.
We say boastingly and to mother's credit, that none of us drink whiskey or used tobacco, and all were honest and industrious.
During the 60's mother helped to raise the flax, and spun the tow and the wool that made both our summer and winter apparel.
Father was a stone mason and bricklayer and had to be away from home a great deal, so a larger part of the training of us children devolved on mother, who never tired, but taught continually by "Example and precept here a little and there a little"
The funeral was preached by T. S. Landstreet and A. A. P. Neel, who spoke in glowing terms of her work as a mother and the influence that she exerted will continue to be felt. She was laid to rest in the Lahmansville cemetery, by her husband, and near many relatives to await the great trumpet sound.
