Drucilla Jane (McElroy) Giddens 1865-1904

Died, on Bald Ridge, Pulaski county, Missouri, May 1st, 1904, at 3 o'clock, a.m., Sister Drucilla Jane, wife of George W. Giddens, and daughter of the late Fowler T. McElroy and wife, aged 38 years, 4 months and 21 days.

Sister Jane was born near Palace school house in Pulaski county and was of a family of 11 children, six of whom survive her. May 17th, 1883, she was united in marriage with G.W. Giddens and to them were born nine children, seven of whom survive, and with their father are left to mourn a kind and faithful mother, wife, and companion. Her disease was consumption and when she realized her approaching desolation sought and found Jesus, the sinner's friend, and was made to rejoice in a Saviour's love, and when death struck her and she realized her end was near she called her husband and bid him goodbye, then she called her children and bade them farewell and told them to meet her in heaven, but when she called for Frank and reached to him her hand, her arm was palsied and her hand fell and with a slight convulsion she was gone.

May God in mercy comfort all the bereaved ones and may they all be prepared to follow when called to go as we believe she was.

J.J. Watts
