Orissie B. Lyons (Coffman)
Orissie B. Lyons, wife of C. A. Lyons, and only daughter of Lewis and Mary Coffman, was born near Buford, Highland Co., O, on March 20, 1863 and died at Council Bluffs , Ia. On March 20, 1893, at 2:30 a. m., aged 30 years and 14 days. The fruits of this union are two beautiful little boys, Harry and Arthur. They both survive her. She, with her husband, went to Council Bluffs in October, 1890 where they resided until her death. She united with the church of Christ, January 19, 1880, under the labors of the writer, and has since lived a consistent Christian life. Sister Orissie was raised by pious Christian parents, and she was an exceptionally good girl. She had a great reverence for Christ and his Church. Her remains were brought from Council Bluffs by her husband and her brother back to her home near Buford, where they slept quietly one night. On the next day, it being the 24th of March, 1893, the remains were taken to the old church building in which she had confessed her faith in Christ, where was gathered a very large concourse of sympathizing relatives and friends. The occasion was more touching and the sympathy the greater because Sister "Rissie" was taken down with a violent attack of pneumonia and with a razor in hand, unknowingly obtained, she inflicted two serious and fatal wounds upon her person; but we all think that Sister Orissie's spirit is happy in the presence of Christ. Weep not, then, dear and loved ones, but prepare to meet her where sorrows will be past. The funeral services were conducted in the old Buford Cemetery.
"The bowl is broken, the captive's free,The soul has left its house of clay.The loved ones in eternal day,Her spirit is now among the blessed,The bowl is broken and "Rissie" is at rest."
Pricetown, O., April 3 J. W. Ruble
We knew the dear departed young sister as one of the excellent of earth. Bright in intellect, pure in heart and religious in her aspirations, she walked with God, took pleasure in the things of the Church of Christ , and was always found at the post of duty. God, in his mercy, took her to himself as a bright particular star, and her spirit now shines as a jewel in heaven.- Ed.
