|Obituary||Obit, Colorado Citizen, May 28, 1891:|
Universal regret was expressed by our citizens last Friday morning when it became generally known that Mrs. Emily Simpson was dead. Though afflicted for many months, and herself despairing of recovery, her friends had hoped that with care and the use of remedies suggested by skilled physicians, her life might be prolonged for years yet to come. It was not to be. The hope was rudely dispelled.
Mrs. Simpson was born in Fairfax county Va, August 20, 1820, was married to James H. Simpson, September 10, 1844, immigrated to Colorado county, Texas, March, 1862, and died May 22, 1891, at her home in this city. Her long life was one of quiet, unostentatious usefulness and labor for home interests, her family and friends, of devotion to her children's comfort and well being, finding within the home, its attachents and adornments the greatest meed of her happiness--the fruition of her highest desire. Her malady was borne with the resignation of inate courage and fortitude enshrined to the decrees of an All wise Power; and in her last days she "put her house in order" for her expected departure. To her gentle spirit what the world terms "grim death" came as a longed for messenger of peace, the summons of relief, the invitatiion to rest.
Her remains were transferred to Weimar and interred beside her husband, who preceded her over a decade ago "to that undiscovered country from whose bourne no traveler e'er returns," Rev. G. H. Collins of the Methodist church conducting services at the residence here, and at the Odd Fellow's cemetery in Weimar, assisted by Rev. Mr. Haynie. a large concourse of relatives and friends were present at the sad rites. A son and three daughters are left to mourn their irreparable loss. The Citizen extends sincere condolence.
"The night-dew that falls, though in silence it weeps,
Shall brighten with verdure the grave where she sleeps;
And the tear that we shed, though in secret it rolls,
Shall long keep her memory green in our souls"
