Young Lady Dies at Mont Amoena Seminary – Remains to be Taken to South Carolina for Burial

Miss Carrie Young, a student of Mont Amoena seminary, died at midnight last night after an illness of only a few days.

Miss Young was about 18 years of age and was a member of one of the upper classes of the seminary. Her home was at Cameron, S. C., and the remains will be taken to South Carolina tonight for burial.

The death of this young woman has cast a gloom over the town and particularly over the associates of the young lady. Miss Young had been awarded the mathematical medal for the year, but the announcement was not made to her and she died without knowing of the honor she had won in her years work.

Student of Mont Amoena Seminary, Mt. Pleasant, N. C. – Was Member Junior Class

At ten o’clock on Friday night at Mont Amoena Seminary, Mt. Pleasant, N. C., after an illness of three weeks from typhoid fever, occurred the death of Miss Carrie Young, aged 18 years, and the second daughter of Mr. and Mrs. G. D. Young, of the Pomaria section.

This was miss Young’s first year at Mont Amoena although she was a junior in that institution, and she took high rank in her classes, having won the medal in mathematic for the closing year. However, she became sick too soon to know that she had been the winner for after it was so decided she was never conscious to a sufficient degree to become aware of the honor that had been bestowed upon her.

The funeral services were conducted Sunday morning and the burial was had at Bethlehem Lutheran church, this county, the funeral rites being said by the pastor of the deceased, the Rev. J. J. Long.

Mr. and Mrs. Young, the parents of the young lady, have only made their home in the Pomaria section dudring the last two years, coming there from their former home in Laurens county. Mrs. Young was Miss Fannie Setzler before her marriage, and the young lady who died at Mt. Pleasant was a granddaughter of Dr. George A. Setzler with whom Mr. and Mrs. Young are now making their home. She was a member of a large family connection in the Pomaria section, and other portions of the State, and her death is a peculiarly sad one.

It seems a sad dispensation of providence that took away a life so young and bright and promising, and yet that life has now been transplanted into a better world above, where the brave young spirit will never grow old, and the sweet memory of her held so dear by those she has left will always be that of one who was young and fair and as the years come and go one by one the loved ones who now mourn her departure will greet her in the land of eternal brightness and all sorrow and sighing will flee away.

The commencement exercises of Mont Amoena were to begin on Sunday but owing to the death of this young lady they were abandoned, and none of the exercises were had except the baccalaureate sermon.

In Memory of Miss Carrie Young

Miss Carrie Young was born June 20 1891, in Laurens county, died May 14, 1909, at Mont Amoena Seminary, Mt. Pleasant N. C., while attending school there.

The community was greatly shocked when the sad news of the death of Miss Young was received.

She leaves to mourn her death a father, mother, four sisters and a host of other relatives and friends.

She was the second oldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. G. D. Young, of Pomaria.

The funeral service was conducted by her pastor, Rev. Jno. J. Long, assisted by Prof. Keller, in Bethlehem Evangelical Lutheran church of which she was a faithful and devoted member. A very large concourse of sorrowing relatives and friends were present. After the funeral service here body was laid to rest in Bethlehem cemetery.

She lived a good Christian life, and now she enjoys the blessings of the redeemed. Her noble character and genial disposition won for her a wide circle of friends.

Before leaving to attend the institution at Mt. Pleasant N. C. she was president of our children’s missionary society at Bethlehem which steadily grew under her direction. Oh! how we will miss her in our society. She was always present unless providentially hindered.

She was nearly eighteen years of age.

We extend our deepest sympathy to the bereaved family who knew her best and loved her most.

All the world give praises due
God is faithful, God is true:
H to man doth comfort send
In His Son, the sinner’s friend.
