Mrs. Dickinson, formerly Miss Ida Anderson, was born near Lowell October 7th, 1874, and grew to womanhood near the place of her birth. She united with the Church of Christ at Lowell April 18th, 1893. From the time she became a member of the church she was a very active worker always willing and ready to do all in her power for the advancement of the cause of Christ which she esteemed very highly. She was married to her husband, Bro. E.G. Dickinson, October 30th, 1895, and although living only a few days after the marriage she possessed the qualifications to an eminent degree of a loving devoted wife. Her funeral was held in the Christian church at Lowell, November 11th, and was conducted by Eld. A.M. Hootman, of Union City, former pastor of the church, who had baptized her and united her in marriage with her bereaved husband only a few days before. It was one of the largest and saddest funerals ever held in Lowell. There was much weeping and sorrow and many friends and relatives followed the remains to the last resting place.
Blessed are the dead that die in the Lord. . . . They do rest from their labors and their works do follow them.
