Daughter of B. R. & Jane A. Bostick 
who died Feb. 28, 1854
In the 23rd year of her age
"Beautiful in life triumphant in death" 
On one side:
She is not dead she lives and walks forever
Through the green pastures of a land more fair.
Crowned with fresh garlands which shall wither never
Or lose their fragrance in the balmy air.

Then let us think of her not dead but living
An angel presence veiled from mortal eyes
The fair rose shattered but the pure flame giving
New beauty to the path, which upward lies.
On other side:
She made a profession of her faith in Jesus Christ
Became a member of the Robertville Church September 1851.
She loved the church of Christ and showed by a life adorned by
The graces of Christianity, that her hope was in the resurrection 
of the body and the blessedness of the Saints in Heaven.
