In Robinson township, Berks County, on the 23rd August 1852, Catherine Templin, widow of Isaac Templin, in her 79th year.
August 23rd, at the residence of her son-in-law, James Everhart, of Robison Township, Berks Co., Catherine Templin, widow of Isaac Templin, daughter of John and Mary Magdaline Nyce, in the 79th year of her age.
In the early part of her life she attached herself to the German Reformed Church, and continued faithful until God called her spirit to its reward. Her faith in the sure promise of her Savior and love for him continued unabated. She was taken away suddenly, but did not fear to die. She was truly a practical Christian. The poverty-stricken traveler never left her door hungry or unclothed, or the allicted without consolation-tears, and king words and appropriate gifts showed her sympathy for the unfortunate. Her loss is irreparable to her bereaved family. That voice which was wont to say, "may God bless you my dear child, trust in Him," is hushed. It will be heard no more by them, but the hope that she is enjoying the fruits of her labors with Christ and his angels in Heaven, will tend to lessen their grief.
