From an old issue of "Signs of the Times".
Mrs. Dora Myers, the subject of this memoir, was the daughter of Peter and Catherine Kessler, late members of Black Rock Church, Baltimore Co., Md., and was born September 14th, 1872. She was baptzied by the late Elder F. A. Chick June 4th, 1893, and proved a faithful member unto death, which occurred suddenly on November 21st, 1926. She was married to George U. Myers July 3rd, 1895, and to that union were born three children: George U., Jr., who died in infancy, Paul and Ella Myers, of 3803 Clifton Ave., Baltimore, Md. The writer was sister Myers' pastor for more than twenty-seven years, and can truly say of her that she was of the very highest type of christain womanhood, faithful in every relation of life. In her death her husband has lost a dutiful wife, her children a devoted mother, the church a much beloved and worthy member, who was ever ready to help her church and pastor with her presence and with her means. Sister Myers was blessed with a good hope through grace, and she loved to talk of spiritual things, and was favored to do so in a very interesting way, as many can testify who have been comforted and encouraged by her ability to see something to be thankful for in the midst of every affliction and disappointment. I feel that it can be as truly said of sister Myers as of any one, that to know her was to love her. Her husband and children (throught both are grown) feel their loss keenly as do her brothers and sisters and many devoted friends. The church and pastor mourn the loss of a dear faithful sister. She was a friend and dear sister indeed to me and mine, and we sorrow that we shall see her on earth no more nor hear her sweet words of consolation again. But we sorrow not as those without hope, for we believe that her spirit is now resting with Jesus her beloved Savior, about whom she so much loved to talk and in whom was her hope for all good things in this life and also in that to come, and we know that according to the promise of Jesus her Lord that he will one day come again without sin unto salvation and raise her sleeping dust (which we laid to rest in the cemetery at Black Rock Church November 24th, which was witnessed by many sorrowing friends), and "then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory." The writer spoke with much emotion from parts of the fifteenth chapter of first Corinthians, also from Mark xiv. 8. Brother Topping also spoke. May God bless all the bereaved ones and enable them to bear their loss with holy resignation.
Written by her pastor,
Joshua T. Rowe
