SAINTED MOTHER IS LAID TO REST
Impressive Funeral Service or Madam Preston
Yesterday — Wealth of Flowers; — Many Present— The
Rev. R. H. Sink Officiates
They laid the mortal remains of good, kind-hearted Madam Preston, head of the Church of the Covenant and founder of the Preston Colony in this county, to rest at noon yesterday In the family vault in the little private burying ground where sometlme ago other loved ones were left In last repose.
Just after noon, while the cortege was wending its way from the church on the hillside towards the cemetery, there was a radiant dash of sunshine to penetrate the overhanging gloom, and the air was filled with the sweet perfume of the flowers that grow so luxuriantly in the terraced gardens about the many happy, delightful homes that form the Preston Colony.
There was a large and notable gathering of friends of the deceased at her funeral, many of whom came from a distance to affectionately pay the last token of esteem. Many of those present had personally benefited by the life and works of the departed one.
