On Thursday afternoon, April 5th, occurred the death of Sarah, wife of Frederick T. Hyne of this city. Her character of rare beauty and nobility, her life of deep piety and devotion to duty, her courage and sweet Christian submission under great sorrows has given her an exalted position in the love, and respect of the community.  Sarah Louise Hicks was born in Montezuma, Cayuga County, New York on the 22nd day of May, 1852. She was the daughter of Wheaton and Sally Ross Hicks and the loved sister of Eugene, Lois, Ross , Lamart and John Jay Hicks, all of whom have preceded her in death.

On the 17th day of February, 1876, she became the bride of Frederick T. Hyne, a young man of uprightness and integrity and of great natural ability. Together they took up their residence in the beautiful home which he had prepared for her.  To them were born seven children, Lunette, who was taken from them at the age of five; Katie Louisa, who lived but eight short months; Elsie Fredrica, now the wife of the Reverend Daniel Hodgin; Erwin R. of this city; Frances Louise, who passed on soon after her nineteenth birthday. There were also the twins, Ruth and Ralph.  Ruth lived but four months and Ralph had scarcely reached eighteen months when he too, slipped away, adding another sorrow. Mrs. Hyne had the distinction of being one of the first two teachers in Brighton who received their training at the Ypsilanti normal. Through her long life her keen mind has, even to the time of her last short illness, been ever-on the alert- interested it and posted on the issues of the day Constant in her devotion to her church and its activities, she has been a delight to her dear children and husband who with her devoted grandchildren have smoothed with tender lovingness the path of declining years.  She leaves to morn her loss, her husband, F.T. Hyne, her daughter Frieda, her son Erwin, eight grandchildren and two great grand-children, as well as a large number of other of other relatives and friends.
