LILLIE BOYD (Mrs. R.V.) FULTON
May 18, 1871 - May 9, 1921
 
The subject of this sketch, Mrs. Lillie Boyd Fulton, was born near Homer, La., May 18, 1871. Her parents, Mr. and Mrs. L. M. Boyd, were among the substantial builders of our North Louisiana citizenship, and both were devoutly religious. She was married in 1897 to Rev. R. V. Fulton, and died May 9, 1921, at Farmersville, La. She was a beautiful Christian character, having been converted in early childhood. She shared the lot of an itinerant Methodist preacher with true devotion to God, her husband, and those whom they served. Many beautiful floral wreaths attested the affection of those whom she and her husband had served here and over the State. She was called hence very suddenly, but was found watching and faithful. She was laid to rest at Davis Springs cemetery by the writer, May 11, 1921. A large number of her friends of youthful days were with her loved ones at the funeral. There was much weeping over their loss, and shouts. of victory over her triumphs. She leaves her preacher husband in lonesomeness and sadness. Two children preceded her into the other world and three survive her—Mrs. S. E. Richard on, Wilmer, and R. V., Jr. She also leaves five brothers and five sisters. We commend her example of faithfulness to her love ones, and pray God, our Father, to comfort them, and to give to each grace sufficient for every need.
