At noon Tuesday Sister Hortense Bougeno passed into the beyond. She was born in France
sixty-four years ago; came to this country when just a young lady and was married to her
husband who survives her. She was a Catholic and lived thus for many years, but was
converted and united with our church a number of years ago, just at the close of Bro.
Shuck's pastorate. She was in many ways a very remarkable woman. We have never known
two lives to be more intimately woven together than her's and her husband's. They fought
life's battles together bravely and honestly and raised a family of five children, who
were as devoted to her as any children could be. There were two things she ever showed
the truest devotion for, namely, her family and her church. She never tired of either.
Her funeral was conducted by her pastor Wednesday after noon, and her body, which had been
so frail for more than one year, was laid away
"To rest in hope of that bright day,
When beauty shall spring from prisons of clay;
When Gabriel's voice and the trumpet of the Lord
Shall awaken the dead in every graveyard."
