Mrs. Prather was highly respected by all who knew her. She was kind and patient and although her sufferings were intense at times, she bore them bravely. During the many months of her illness she had the tender ministrations of those whom she loved best and were bound to her by strong ties of kinship. Her family life was most congenial and affectionate. She will be greatly missed by loved ones. Only a short time ago, she professed religion and was baptized.
