Oct 16, 1947 – Obituary

Mrs Sarah Tennessee Finley, daughter of Mack and Matilda Muncy, was born

and departed this life Oct 7, 1947, at Anadarko, Okla., at age of 83 years, 11 months

She was united in marriage to H. C. Finley, July 1st 1883. To this union

and became a member of the Baptist Church at an early age and remained a devoted
Christian until the end.

This was her creed, To do some good,

To bear her ills without complaining

To press on as a brave woman should

For honors that are worth the gaining;

To seek no profits where she may,

By winning them, bring grief to others;

To do some service day by day

In helping on her toiling brother.
