Obits For The Snell Surname
From Tate County, Mississippi
Eura Greer Snell
Tate County Mississippi Democrat
September 13, 1923
On Thursday morning, August Thirtieth, "Death, with a peace beyond dreaming," entered the home of MR. & MRS. J. L. GREER taking from them, their beloved daughter EURA GREER SNELL, wife of LAWRENCE SNELL, Blytheville, Ark.
Words are but feeble means to express the sorrow of her family and friends, but to her fever tortured body and delirium troubled mind, death must have been a blessed release from suffering---Oh how we shall miss her.
She was such a dear girl, possessed the most lovable personality affectionately known ever, as "BILL". She was loved alike, by old and young by whom she will never be forgotten, so, in spirit,
"Let us walk with her and keep unbroken,
The bond which, nature gives;
That our remembrance, tho unspoken,
May reach her, where she lives."
We know not why for her, the Book of Life was closed thus early seemingly unfinished, but God knows best and we must bow in humble submission to His Will.
To her parents, husband and baby daughter, her brothers and sisters, who loved her so, we extend sympathy for we sorrow with them, but, if we will, we shall see her again someday, beyond those shadowy lands.
"Now her eyes behold
Things that shall never,
To mortal be told"
Mrs. W. E. P.
