Obituary: Nancy Rushie Akers Hall
26 Dec 1889 - 11 Jan 1932

She joined the Old Regular Baptist Church at the Little Dove Church, Honaker, Ky., over twenty years, and shortly moved her fellowship to the New Salem Church, at Harold, Kentucky, where it remained until her death. No greater faith and godly devotion has been exhibited in this writer's vision than that manifested by this little believer. Her love for the old church never grew cold, even tho she was confined to her bed for over twelve years. During her long confinement, every season and sometimes oftener she would manifest her memory of the brethren and sisters by sending to the church a bunch of beautiful flowers, and accompany them with a written testimonial of her growing faith in God, and immeasurable love for Christ and his children, verily, like Job of old she persevered unfalteringly faithful through all her years of indescribable pain and suffering, and met the end with a smile on her face, saying "I have seen Christ and his angels coming after me."

Her conversation, to the writer's personal knowledge, was the nearest a godly one, continually. Let me say, to these little children: You remember now, and no doubt will, when you grow old, your mother's life how she used to shout praises to her Lord, how she prayed and trusted in the great Jehovah. Do not forget that shining trail of purity of life, and steadfastness in faith, she left untarnished before you. Weep not for her loss, but rather believe in her God and Saviour that you may get ready to meet her in the bye and bye. To her aged father and mother, your days among the living are few. Renew your faith, and march on to the day when you can meet your daughter in a beautiful city.

To her brothers and sister, weep not because of her silent slumber, but let your very souls behold the lamb of God through humble faith and repentance, which some of you have already done, that you too may live and die in the sweet hope of a glorious meeting of your sister, in a world where parting is not known. That frail, weak and sickly body that was planted in the lonesome cemetery on Prater Creek, was not handed down to oblivion. God almighty, knows today the very spot where it is sleeping. That soul that left this body smilingly and rejoicingly, is today resting and basking beneath the throne of God and his Son. No trouble, no pain, no worry, just a waiting angel that will come at God's command, one of these days with Christ, at a great sound of a trumpet together from one end of the earth to the other, all of these sleeping saints. Written by I. A. Smiley

She enjoyed cooking, baking, and putting on feasts for her family, but baking birthday cakes for her children brought her the greatest joy.

I am so sorry to hear about Marea. I really loved talking with her and hearing her stories of her childhood and family, and enjoyed the times we were able to get together over the years, not as often as we wanted, but as much as we could. She was not only my cousin, but my friend. I will miss her. Hugs to you, her family. I wish I could be there with you now. Cora Fisher a day ago

I am so sorry for your loss. She was a wonderful person. I have many fond memories. Liz Callehan 3 days ago
