The Life of Viola . Kennedy

Mrs. Viola B. Kennedy.
Viola B. Nichols was born in Illinois in 1859, and died at a hospital in Kansas  City, Saturday, Feb. 3, 1900. Her father having died when she was made her home with her aunt, G L. Pitt, of Belleview. In 1885 joined the church at this place, professed religion some time before. In the same year she was married to S. M. Kennedy, who, with two children survive here.
It has been the priviledge of the writer to know Mrs. Kennedy for about twenty years and to be associated with her both in church and social circles. She was a true Christian woman, a faithful wife and a mother. Her life, for many years, has been one of much suffering. yet she was always kind and cheerful, bearing her trials with that fortitude only a firm believer in Christ can posses.
The funeral services were at Belleview church, Monday, 5. Rev. H. D. Hogan, pastor, preached a very earnest and appealing sermon from Rev. xiv, 13. The floral tributes were many and beautiful. The remains were then taken to Olathe and laid to rest in the Olathe cemetery.
Besides a husband and two little danghters, there is a large circle of relatives and friends to mourn her departure, But their loss is her eternal gain, and while they weep for this loved one they sorrow not as those who have no hope, for they know that if they are faithful unto death they shall see her face to face in that blissful land beyond the grave. We extend our deepest sym pathy to the bereaved family and commend them to Him who doeth all things well.
