 In Memory of Sister Sarah Osborne  Mrs. Sarah Osborne (Nee Coats) was born in Bedford County, Tenn., October the 12th 1832.  Moved with her father's family to Arkansas at the age of thirteen.

She was converted and united with the Missionary Baptist Church at the age of fifteen or seventeen years.

Her funeral services was held at Prairie Grove Baptist Church where her membership was.  Services were conducted by H. A. Conway, her pastor, and W. Z. Corbin, her former pastor, in the presence of a large crowd of relatives and friends.

Sister Osborne was a real help meet to her husband in a long life of active ministry.  A true Christian wife, an affectionate mother, and a good neighbor. No one among us was more highly esteemed and loved, for her noble and devoted Christian character than was Sister Osborne.

She was the mother of two noble sons, and four daughters, which all of them survive her.

Her husband preceded her in death a little more than two years ago.

She had 46 grandchildren and 118 great grandchildren and 11 gr-gr-grandchildren, besides a large number of friends.

Resolve that in the death of Sister Osborne, the children have lost a devoted mother, the church a faithful member, the community a good neighbor.
