LOUISE WYATT COLLECTION
Maggie Wyatt Lewis
Dec 31, 1883 – Dec 6, 1924
Mrs. Maggie Lewis:
On Saturday night,
December 6, 1924, the angel of death
entered the home of Vernon Lewis and claimed for its victim his devoted
Maggie. She had been in bad health for
a long time, and was confined to her bed six months before her death.
She was born Dec. 31, 1883, being 40 years, 11 months, and six days old; was married to Vernon Lewis in Oct 1903; to this union four children were born - Mrs. Herbert Hogue, Earl, Nellie May and Thomas Lewis the youngest of whom is 6 years old.
She also leaves a father and stepmother, Mr. and Mrs. E. J. Wyatt; and a little grandson; three sisters - Mrs. Hallie Smith, Boynton, FL; Mrs. Lola May Gafford, Cub Creek; and Mrs. Eula Gladys Lewis, Indian Mound.
She professed faith in Christ in early life and joined the Methodist Church and lived a Christian life until God saw fit to call her home. She prayed to get well, but near the last she knew she was going to die, and said there was not a thing in her way. She was laid to rest in her father's graveyard Dec 11.
Maggie was born, raised and married near Big Rock, but a few years after their marriage they moved to Clarksville and lived there until four years ago, they moved to Boynton, FL, and lived there until her death.
Many of her friends in Florida and Clarksville sent beautiful flowers to accompany her remains to the grave. They came home once while in Florida on a visit, but this time sister came home it was oh so sad. The voice we loved is still. We loved her, yes, we loved her, but God loved her better. All was done for her that friends and physicians could do, but God said come from this world of sin, sorrow and suffering to the land of endless day.
(Note: Maggie Wyatt Lewis was the granddaughter of Eli John W. Wyatt, one of the Wyatt twin boys raised in Stewart County by Charles and Rachel Atkins Roper.)
