The Life of Alice Bell Steele
Steele. On Friday, February 16, 1894, at 12:15 p.m., Alice Bell, the oldest and beloved daughter of John E. and Annie L. Steele, aged 8 years and 10 months. One sweet flower was drooped and faded, One sweet darling voice has fled, One fair brow the grave has shaded, Little Alice now is dead. Had we strove to keep her with us, But love and skill were all in vain; We must lay our darling loved one 'Neath the graveyard's sod away. And in this, our deepest sorrow, We pray Thee, Eternal One, Help us to bow in meek submission And say "Oh, God, Thy will be done." Funeral from parents' residence, 1401 K street southeast, 3 o'clock Monday afternoon (Baltimore papers please copy).
