Crockett County Sentinel|
April 16, 1920
DEATH OF MRS. HENRY LEWIS---Edia Jane WAINWRIGHT was born March 27th, 1854, near Alamo; was a neice of Mr. Allen WAINWRIGHT, who was taken from us recently. When quite young, she joined the Christian Church, and lived a consistant member until death, which occurred Friday afternoon, April 2nd, about 2 o'clock. She seemed as well as usual, and spoke to a friend who was passing by just before she died; she was reading the Sentinel. She was married to Henry LEWIS in 1879, to this union were born three sons; Allen, Thomas, & Elmer. She leaves 5 grandchildren. They recently celebrated her 66th birthday by bringing her a nice dinner and spending the day. She was a good kind neighbor and friend; patient in all her afflictions, and often expressed a readiness to leave this world for a better home. Her prayer was answered, for she often expressed herself as one of the old--"Come quickly Lord, and take me home. "She told her husband that it would not be long that she could stay; and oh, how soon she went away!" A devoted mother and faithful wife has gone. God bless the family and help us all meet again. --Her Friends.
