A telegram called this aged mother to their home in N. Dakota, but when the mother had arrived there, the daughter was dead and buried, The Husband and some of the children were still confined to their beds, all having typhoid fever. The grandmother returned with three of the children. The following spring the father and four children came leaving the babe with a neighbor, where she still is. This family of seven was taken by the grandmother into her home, where she minstered to all their wants. Here was a labor of love and sacrifice for six long years, when the father remarried and took his family home. Mrs. Rister was loved by all who knew her. The example of her life will be a monument to her memory. She has gone from those she loved and has gained the reward promised to the good and faithful servant - "Enter into the joys of thy rest." Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also. There's a land far away, 'mid the stars we are told. Where they know not the sorrows of time. Farewell, dear mother-a last, a long, a sad farewell. Long and unbroken will thy slumber be.
