beauty of her life work is fitly expressed in the following poem by her former
pastor Dr McGaugflin at the burial service
Our Home Maker
Mid hills that sloping downward
Their purple chalices hold
The new made wine of the sunset
Crimson and amber and gold.
In this wide opened doorway
With the elm boughs overhead
The house all garnished behind her
And the plentiful table spread
She has stood to welcome our coming
Watching our upward climb
In the sweet June weather that brought us
Oh many and many a time.
Today in the gentle spendor
Of the passing summer noon
Perfect in beauty and fragrance
Rich in treasures of bloom
Again is the doorway opened
And the home is garnished and sweet
But she silently waits for our coming
And we enter with silent feet
A little within she is waiting
Not where she has met us before
For ever the present theshold
She has only to cross once more/
The smile on her face is quiet
And a lily is on her breast
The hands are folded together
And the word on her lips are rest
And yet it looks like a welcome
For her work is compassed and done
All things are seemly and ready
And her summer is just began
As we who may not cross over
Only with song and prayer
A little way into the Glory
We may reach as we leave her there
But we cannot think of her idle
She must be a homemaker still
God giveth that work to the angels
Who fittest the task fulfil.
And somewhere yet in the hilltops
Of the country that hath no pain
She will watch in her beautiful doorway
To bid us a welcome again
