Flurry, Gertie Johnson

In Memory of Mrs. Gertie Flurry. Our hearts were saddened last Saturday morning, February 15, 1936, when the Death Angel claimed its victim Mrs. Gertie Johnson Flurry, age 38 years, of Delaware, Arkansas. Mrs. Flurry was born and reared at Delaware, where she spent her entire life.

Beautiful in character, sweet, generous, talented and accomplished, a loyal friend and sister and an untiring worker. She was thoughtful of others, forgetful of self at all times. A joy it was to her to lend a helping hand wherever an opportunity presented itself. She loved all near and dear to her with a great love. Many times has she stood by the bedside of her own family through sickness. She will be missed so much, not only in the home, but in church and in the community and in all its activities. But it was God's will that she go, and our loss is Heaven's gain. Earth was made dearer with her here and Heaven is nearer now since she is there. In suffering and pain she exhibited great patience. God, in his loving kindness will no doubt mete out to her an extra reward for all things done while here. We miss our dear one more than we can tell, but on the other hand we know and feel that she lives with God and His angels, where she experiences joy and happiness beyond our understanding, for all eternity in Heaven where some day we hope to meet her again. Oh, consoling thought, and wonderful reality, comprehended only by those whose religion has taught them to believe in its Supreme Being. Her spirit will live on forever and hover near us and remind us of her many loving deeds and virtue worthy of imitation.

The funeral service, in charge of the Fentress Mortuary of Ft. Smith, was held at the Assembly of God Church Sunday at 2 p. m. being conducted by Rev. L. L. Riley, Pastor of the Assembly of God Church of Russellville. Interment was in Graves Cemetery.

Mrs. Flurry is survived by a daughter, Elwanda; her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Felix Johnson; a sister, Irenah Johnson, all of Delaware. (WWW.YellCountyObits.org, Submitted by: Patron, Newspaper: , 2/15/1936)
