She lost her companion in 1853. He served a term in the war of 1812, and closed up life in great peace. Sister Parrill was a great sufferer in her last years. She lost her eyesight about twelve years before her death, and nearly entirely paralyzed for aobut five years before her death. She bore up under her affliction with great Christian fortitude. When spoken with regard to the future, she said all was well. The last week of her illness she said that she expected soon to bloom as the rose. Her funeral was first preached at the residence where she died, by the Rev. W. H. Gibbons, of the Ohio Conference of the M.E. Church, from Hebrews iv, 9, and then at Beaver Chapel, Beaver Circuit, Ohio Conference by the writer, from Deuteronomy xxxii, 48-49.
