    Ida Elnora Greene Burdick, daughter of David C. and Lovina Sweet Greene, was born in Wisconsin, May 12, 1856, and died at the home of her son Buell Burdick at Gotebo, Okla., November 18, 1922. When she was just a baby her parents moved to Dodges Creek, N. Y. She was baptized and joined the Dodges Creek Seventh Day Baptist Church, but later removed her membership to the Nile Seventh Day Baptist Church where she lived for a number of years. She was married February 28, 1875, to Emmet L. Burdick at Richburg, N. Y. After spending a year at Attalla, Ala., they moved to Nortonville, Kan., in 1896. They brought their church letters with them and joined the Seventh Day Baptist Church of this place at that time. After residing here for five years they moved to Lone Wolf, Okla., where they lived until seven years ago when they went to live with their daughter, Mrs. Roy Benedict, of Hobart, Okla. Mr. Burdick died June 11, 1921.
    Mrs. Burdick has been an earnest Christian all her life and loved to read much in her Bible which she always revered as "a lamp unto (her) feet and a light unto (her) path."
    Three children: Ellery Burdick of Roosevelt, Okla., Mrs. Roy Benedict, of Hobart, Okla., Buel Burdick, of Gotebo, Okla., one sister, Mrs. Hattie Wheeler, of Buffalo, N. Y., one brother, Mr. Clark Greene, of Nile, N. Y., and three grandsons still live to cherish her memory.
    Funeral services were held from the Seventh Day Baptist church Monday at 2:30, p. m. Pastor Cottrell preached an excellent sermon from the 14th chapter of John, which was a favorite chapter of the deceased. Music was furnished by a mixed quartet.
    Mrs. Burdick was a noble mother to her children. No one ever entered her home without a warm welcome, nor left without feeling the ef­fects of warm hospitality. The cares of life and disease did not destroy the charm of a loving, indulgent disposition, or diminish her unselfish solicitude for her loved ones. Mother was always the same to her children, and though business cares and home circles of their own had come to each of them, they were still her boys and girls. We know that in future years the memory of her devotion will make them better men and women, and her precepts will be their guiding star.
    In the presence of such sorrow, how cold and feeble are words, and how doubly deep would be the grief, were it not for the rainbow of Christian hope in the better world beyond.
