Cope, Elizabeth (1768-1838)
Died, January 5, 1838, at Warton in Lichfield circuit, Elizabeth Cope, in the 70th. year of her age. Several years ago she was convinced of sin, — sought and found the Lord, — united with the society, and evinced her love to God — his people and his cause.
She was an industrious wife — an affectionate parent — a peaceable neighbour — a faithful friend and a steady member. Her afflictions were great and complicated, but she endured them patiently. Her end was peaceable and triumphant. She said, “Weep not for me, I am happy. Glory to God, he is with me now. I am not afraid to die. I am going to heaven. Come, Lord Jesus, come quickly.” And she fell asleep in Jesus.
