Nannie A Brewer Adams Obit

I found this in an old copy of "Sign of the Times".

Nannie A. Adams, wife of C.M. Adams, departed this life November 18th, 1924. She was born near Jackson, Tenn., September 19th 1872, and while a child with her parents moved to Parker County, Texas, and remained there with them until October 6th 1895. She was married to C.M. Adams and lived in Parker and Tarrant Counties, Texas, until December 1919, when she became so afflicted with asthma the doctors advised her to go to El Paso, Texas, and after moving here her health was almost restored, and then she was afflicted with a cancer. She had two operations, which were not successful, and for almost seven months she suffered greatly, but bore all with patience and did not murmur or complain. She was a devoted wife, a kind and loving mother, and was always at peace with her neighbors. She received a good hope in 1910, and in 1915 she and her husband joined the Missionary Baptists, but soon became dissatisfied with their works, as she said she did not receive a good hope of life eternal through good works, and after attending a "Ladies' Aid" meeting she said they reminded her of Martha, who was cumbered about much serving, and careful, and troubled about many things, when Jesus told her but one thing was needful, and Mary has chosen that good part, sitting at Jesus' feet hearing his word, and so it was always the desire of the dear departed one to sit at the feet of Jesus and hear his word. She fell asleep in Jesus on the date above mentioned just as the sun was setting, and there being no other one here in this city of her faith, except her bereaved husband, we had a Missionary Baptist conduct the funeral services. Before she passed away she requested that only one hymn, "Nearer my God to thee," be sung, which was a song she always loved. She was not a member of the Primitive Baptists, but enjoyed going to their meetings while at Ft. Worth, Texas, but being deprived of that privilege here her only comfort was reading the dear old Signs of the Times, a paper she dearly loved. She leaves to mourn their loss a lonely husband, two daughters, one son, two brothers, two sisters and her father, J.C. Brewer, who is a member of the Primitive Baptist Church at Ft. Worth, Texas, but he how lives at Lamar, Arkansas. It is hard to give her up, but it is a sweet hope and comfort to us to know that she was so willing and ready to go, so we have a hope that she is now asleep in Jesus, blessed sleep, from which none ever wake to weep, as she passed away trusting in Jesus, and not trusting in an arm of flesh.
Written by her bereaved husband,
C.M. Adams
