Julia Victoria Fisher Cline received her education in the public schools of North Carolina and at Mont Amoena Seminary. She was widowed at the age of thirty with three small children to rear. This she did in a remarkable manner. With courage, patience, and a strong faith in God, she conquered all obstacles and reared her children to be a credit to herself, to her church and to the communities where they have lived.

Mrs. Cline was a true friend, loving Mother, and consecrated Christian. Her children and grandchildren have inherited sterling qualities from this great and good Mother.

Martin L. Cline was educated at St. John’s Academy and North Carolina College, at Mt. Pleasant. He was a farmer and always interested in the things that make for a better life. His chief interests were his home, his family and his church. He was a member of the Church Council of St. John’s Lutheran Church at the time of his death and had held various offices in the church prior to that time.

Their son is a successful farmer, businessman, and churchman. A daughter has been a valued teacher in the public schools of North Carolina for many years. Another daughter married a Lutheran Minister and has labored faithfully with her husband in the upbuilding of God’s Kingdom.
