Sister Bennie Mothershed was born on March 15th, 1893, died Feb 10, 1913.She was the eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ben Atkins of Looxahoma. She was married to C. H. Mothershed May 3rd 1912. Bernie was sick only a short time but doctors, friends, relatives and the attention and efforts of her devoted husband could not save her.

We all must yield to the hand of fate. She was baptized into Christ some several years ago, by Gus Dunn of the Church of Christ. Bernie will be greatly missed by the Church, her relatives and the host of friends she left. It is hard to give up our loved ones, but as the Apostles say, "if in this life only we have hoped in Christ, we are of all men most miserable". She leaves behind her father, mother, and sister her devoted young husband and little child. May the Lord's richest blessings be theirs.
