Joyce (INMAN) OLIPHANT was born January 11, 1865, and died March 12, 1922; aged fifty-seven years, two months and one day. On May 6, 1888, she was united in marriage with William O. OLIPHANT, to whom she was a faithful companion. She was a loving foster mother to the five children who came under her care by this union, all of whom preceded her in death. Her father and mother and two older sisters also preceded her to the great beyond.She has two sisters and a brother living-Faraby CRUM, of Owensburg; Naomi KINDER, of Bradley, Arkansas, and Mordica INMAN, of Oolitic. Joyce united with the Old School Baptist Church, December, 1888, in which faith she lived a faithful member until death. On March 12th, the sudden and unexpected end came to this Godly woman. She has many friends and relatives to mourn her departure. In her demise our little village and surrounding community has lost a citizen that few equal, and none surpass. She, having been connected with the hotel business for many years at Owensburg, won the love and admiration of many transient travelers. She was one of a strong personality, generous and kind disposition, the traveler as well as neighbors and friends was always met with a kind welcome and enjoyed the hospitality of her home which was excelled by none. In her departure, we speak of her as being dead, but, we know by the record she leaves that while the earthly tabernacle, the temporary dwelling place of the Holy Spirit, has returned to Mother Earth, we who knew her know that she not only lived with a hope of eternal life, but was in the faith unto the end. Therefore, we have reason to believe that the spirit which God gave has returned to the Father, there to enjoy eternal life in the home our Savior has prepared for the faithful. Although it was raining, and a very disagreeable day to be out, a large number of friends and relatives attended the services to pay respect to one who was loved and respected by all. The funeral services were held at the Church of Christ, T. M. Waggoner officiating.
