Anna Long, daughter of Lewis and Mary J. Long, was born in Macon Co. ,Illinois, May 7, 1868. Shortly afterward her parents moved to Greenwood, Kansas. In 1877 they moved to Sullivan County, Mo., where she lived until 1901 when she went to Oklahoma. December 25,1901 she was united in marriage to Andrew J. Havens, in Apache, Caddo County, Oklahoma. To this union four children were born, namely, Roberta Margaret, age 13; Lilah Francis and Luciel Jane, age 11;and Essie, they with her husband survive. She was a member of the Royal Neighbor Lodge, and was loyal to that fraternity. She was esteemed by the members of the lodge. But the ranks are broken, a chair is empty, you will hear from her, no more, the password, nor the rap. She has gone to join the lodge where the password does not change with the passing of time. The password is the same now as it was when the Morning Stars sang together. It is the name of Him who has redeemed us by His own precious blood. It is no secret name. It is Jesus. She was a member of the Christian church having espoused the cause of Christ in early childhood. She was a Christian in deed and in truth. She loved her home, and all that went to show the Christ life. She died in the triumphs of a living faith. What a sad thing it is to have to give up to death a loving wife and mother. But the fiat of death is inexorable. There is no appeal for relief from that great law which dooms us to dust. We flourish and fade as the leaves of the forest; and the flowers that bloom and wither and fade in a day have no frailer hold upon life than the mightiest monarch that ever shook the earth with his footsteps. Generations of men will appear and disappear as the grass, and the multitude that throng the world today will disappear as foot- steps on the shore. Men seldom think of the great event of death, until the shadows falls across their own pathway, hiding from their eyes the faces of loved ones, whose living smile was the sunlight of their existence. Death is the antagonist of life, and the thought of the tomb is the skeleton of feasts. We do not want to go through the dark valley, although the dark passage may lead to paradise; we do not want to go down into damp graves even with the princes of bedfellows. In the beautiful drama of Ion, the hope of immortality, so eloquently uttered by the death devoted Greek, finds deep response in every thoughtful soul. When about to yield his life a sacrifice to fate, his Clemanthe asks, if they should meet again; to which he responds: "I have asked that dreadful question of the hills that look eternal, of the clear streams that flow forever, of stars among whose fields of azure my raised spirits walked in glory. All are dumb. But, as I gaze upon thy living face, I feel that there is something in love that mantles through its beauty, that cannot wholly perish. We shall meet again! So I add that we may be parted here for a little while,we can meet again. She leaves to mourn her departure, husband, four children, father, mother, five sisters and four brothers and a host of friends. Services and burial at the Knifong March 30th attended by a large number of people. She was 47 yr, 10 mo and 21 days old. Hail, ye far off lands of light! Hail, ye moving millions that walk the plains of the New Jerusalem! Hail, all hail! mother dear we are coming home. W.W.C. (Browning Leader-Record 06 April 1916,Page 1,Col.4)
