Obituary & Poem for Opey,
wife of Daniel Fleming, written by
Granddaughter Alice (Moon) Hill,
age 14, before her marriage in 1886

FLEMING – Mrs. Opey Fleming, wife of Daniel Fleming, at her residence in Sugarcreek Twp., April 2nd, 1879, of cancer in the mouth, aged 60 years and 23 days

Our own dear mother now had gone,
No more our home she’ll cheer;
The joy her presence always gave
Is now no longer here.

In our home circle there’s a void
which never can be filled;
Her footsteps here no more are heard,
Her dear sweet voice is stilled.

With anxious heart around her couch
Friends watched for health’s return;
But fierce disease made sure his work,
And now we’re left to mourn.

Though she was dearly loved by all,
I would not call her down
From you bright world, so much desired,
To leave her precious crown.

Farewell, dear Mother, ‘till we meet
In that bright world above;
And there with Jesus we will dwell
In pure and holy love.
