PATTERSON, WILLIS posted by Mt. Echo Newspaper on Tuesday, June 15, 1888

Mt. Echo Newspaper, June 15, 1888 issue: Obituary: Hulda M. PATTERSON, nee WILLIS, was born in Cleveland county, N. C., October 26, 1849. Her father moved to Arkansas when she was a child and settled in Boone county. She was converted at 16 years of age and joined the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, in which she lived a consistent member until translated to the Church Triumphant at 10 p.m. February 21st, 1888. She was married to her now bereaved husband January 15, 1871. Was the mother of five children, one of them (little Jimmy) preceded her to the children's home in Heaven. Of her virtues, too much cannot be said. She was a dutiful child, a faithful and devoted wife, a patient and loving mother, faithful in training her children in the nurture and admonitions of the Lord. She leaves a good mother, a broken-hearted husband, four children, and many friends to mourn their loss. But we sorrow not without hope, for we believe that Jesus died and rose from the dead and all that sleep in Him God will bring with Him in the resurrection morn. [The remainder was too faded to read, but I think all the genealogical data contained herein was transcribed.] J. R. Patterson
