She had taught seven years in Indiana and she taught one year at Palmetto, Louisiana.
Mrs. Lahey was a faithful co-laborer in her husband’s ministry—at Melville, Boyce and other points. A daughter tells of her father’s great dependence upon her mother in all the work of the ministry In the several charges which he served.
Three daughters survive Mrs. Lahey—Mrs. D. Anderson of Oklahoma City, Mrs. L. D. Strahan, and Mrs. A. C. Hodnett of Colf ax, Louisiana.
