MRS. EMMA BROWNE CARGILL
1962
 
                On April 20, 1962, Mrs. Emma Browne Cargill joined the Church triumphant. She was the widow of the late Rev. E. L. Cargill, an honored member of the Louisiana Annual Conference, and the daughter of the late Dr. and Mrs. James Newton Browne.
                Mrs. Cargill joined the church when she was a child and was a loyal and devoted member until her death. She has shared the joys and privileges of the pastorate and parsonage home with her husband for 48 years.
                She is survived by three daughters: Mrs. E. J. Hemard, Mrs. W. C. Caileff, of Shreveport, Mrs. T. F. Glaze of Alexandria, Louisiana and one son, E. L. Cargill of Tulsa, Oklahoma.
                In her quiet, lovely way, she touched the lives of many people and lifted them a little closer to God because of the beauty of her character. It can be said of her as Longfellow said of Evangeline: “Her going was like the closing of exquisite music.”
