Newspaper published in: Houston, MO
The Death Angel has visited our vicinity and taken from our midst a beloved one, Mrs. Victoria Lemons, leaving a vacancy in the home that can never be filled. She has been an invalid for some twenty years and through all her illness she was ever patient and cheerful, winning the friendship of all those about her.
She has for many years been a member of the Christian church and remained faithful unto the end. All that medical aid and loving hands cold do was done but all in vain. For the Master, who doeth all things well, had called her to that higher home where no sorrow can ever come.
She has left this low ground of sorrow,
To await the dawn of the glorious morrow;
When she shall dwell in heaven above,
Where Jesus reigns in perfect love.
The remains were laid to rest in the Old Union cemetery. Rev. Leonard of Plato, Mo., conducted the funeral services.
Mrs. Victoria (Scott) Lemons was born in Montgomery county, Mo., June 16, 1851, and in her early years moved with her parents to Texas county, Mo. She was wedded to J. C. Lemons Dec. 8, 1872. To this union were born 13 children, 7 of whom survive, 6 having died in infancy.
She died, of tuberculosis, June 1, 1915, her age, at death being 63 years, 11 months and 18 days. Those surviving are a husband, 7 children: Miss Addie Lemons, Mesdames Fannie Wilson and Oma Rutts; Messrs. G. R. Lemons, Hosea Lemons, Tennyson Lemons and Ival Lemons; 2 sisters, Mesdames Fannie Williams of this vicinity and Isabella Blankenship of Licking, Mo., and 3 brothers, John Scott of Mtn, Grove, Mo., R.
