Death of Miss Myrtle Dobbs
The Soper Herald December 3, 1909 – transcribed by Ron Henson
It was quite a shock to Soper and community that came over the wires Thursday
evening, stating the death of one of Soper’s most respected and cultured young
ladies, Miss Myrtle Dobbs.
Miss Dobbs was opperated [sic] on in Hugo last week and it was the hope of her many friends here that she would recover but alas, God was better that should be taken from us and sent his angels to receive her soul.
She was born in Yell County, Ark. Aug 1, 1882, was a faithful member of the Baptist church at Soper, a true and faithful daughter, sister and christian. By her death the mother looses a true daughter, to her [unreadable] sister a sister, the church a member and Soper a young lady whose place cannot be filled. She leaves a mother, sisters and three brothers, also many friends to mourn her death but; death, where is thy sting and grave, where is thy victory? Heaven has gained all, and now she is with our Lord rejoicing with the angels of heaven.
We recommend to the bereaved ones our Lord and Savior who can give the comfort that will never cease.
She has only gone on before to greet you as you cross the river of death, where there shall be a meeting that will never part.
This is another example to the unsaved as death is sure and life is uncertain and it is said to prepare to meet thy God. This young lady was a true and faithful christian and is waiting to her loved ones and friends at some future day.
The funeral took place at the city cemetary [sic] this evening at 3:30, conducted by Rev. Cornealous of Hugo. Her many friends were there to pay their tribute to the deceased, and beautiful flowers decorated the grave.
She has gone but not forgotten for Soper and her many friends will always remember her pleasant smiles and cheery words.
