POLING, Susan A. (Pownell)

    Johnstown Tribune, 27 Nov 1923, Page 16, Contributed by Sharon Trosan

The funeral of Mrs. Susan A. Poling, widow of the late Rev. Daniel S. Poling, was held in the Evangelical Church, of South Fork, Saturday afternoon at 2 o'clock.

The pastor, Rev. F. W. Ware, A.M., preached the sermon from Psalm 17:15, a text which Mrs. Poling selected for her funeral a long time before her death.

The Rev. Dr. J. Q. A. Curry, of Scalp level, offered prayer; the Rev. F. W. Barlett, D.D., read the Scriptures, and the Rev. Dr. J. W. Domer of the Eighth Ward, read a biographical sketch of her long and useful life, while Rev. Daniel A. Poling, LL.D, a grandson and pastor of the Marble Collegiate Church of New York City, pronounced a very fitting eulogy. Revs. F. D. Ellenberger and S. V. Carmany were also present in the services.

A quartet from the South Fork Evangelical Church consisting of Mr. and Mrs. C. E. Dunmire, Mrs. Wallace Hughes and William Ellis sang "Lift Me Higher" and "Savior, Lead Me, Lest I Stray," two numbers chosen some time ago by the deceased. The floral tributes were numerous and beautiful.

The body was laid to rest in the beautiful cemetery at South Fork beside the grave of her husband, who died in 1907.
