Obituary for Caroline Brady from the Indian River Advocate, June 2, 1893; pg. 4, column 3
This community was pained to learn last Tuesday morning that Caroline Brady, wife of E. L. Brady, had passed from this life at 9:00 o'clock the night before.
The deceased had been ill for several months, and for the past few weeks the vital spark was so very feeble her relatives and friends realized that there was little if any ground for hope.
The cause of death was intestinal tuberculosis, or consumption of the bowels.Everything that human skill could suggest, or that the sympathy of loving hearts could prompt or dictate, was done to alleviate her suffering and avert the untimely end; but an inscrutable providence had decreed otherwise, and the soul which had suffered so hopefully, so patiently, left its earthly tenement and passed to the brighter life beyond.
The funeral services were held at St. Gabriel's P.E. Church, on Tuesday, the 30th at 10 o'clock a.m., Rev. B.F. Brown officiating, in the presence of the bereaved relatives and a large congregation of sorrowing friends.
The remains were conveyed to the church and placed in the centre isle, immediately in front of the chancel. James Pritchard, W. M. Brown, C. F. Fischer, Geo. M. Robbins, Richard Rhodes and Walter S. Graham, intimate friends of the grief-stricken husband, and all gentlemenwho held the deceased in highest esteem, acting as pall bearers.
The choir rendered the beautiful hymn "Nearer my God to Thee," which was a special favorite of the dead, and the sweet words touched a tender responsive chord in each heart as they thought that their dead friend had realized the prayer of her favorite song.
Rev. Mr. Brown then followed with a few brief, well chosen remarks, and after the choir rendered another beautiful hymn:
"I heard the voice of Jesus say,
Come unto me and rest;
Lay down thou weary one, lay down,
Thy head upon my breast,"
The congregation was dismissed from the church, and all who could be accommodated with vehicles followed the remains to the grave, where the burial services were concluded.Very many friends were present at the interment, and remained with bowed heads until the grave was filled, when the lady friends of the deceased came forward and in silent sorrow, full of sad thoughts, and with tears for one who had shared their hearts while in life, and covered the mound with floral offerings.
Caroline Brady was a devoted wife, a model mother, and in her sphere as a friend and member of the community, was noted for her modest demeanor, and highly respected for her praiseworthy character.
She was a steadfast and useful member of St. Gabriel's church, and ever ready to aid good works.She was an officer of the Axillary society and an active member of the Ladies' Guild, connecting with the church, which body will not soon forget the modest member and steadfast supporter it has lost.
The deceased was born at Love Grove, near St. Nicholas, in Duval county, on June 12, 1862. She was the daughter of James Young Wilson, whose death was noted in these columns a few months ago.When the deceased was three years of age her parents moved to Jacksonville, where she was raised and received her education.In that city she was married in October, 1880 to Edward L. Brady.Shortly after the marriage they moved to LaGrange, this county, where Mr. Brady embarked in business and remained until 1886, when he moved to Titusville, and at once took a position which he has held ever since as one of our most prominent merchants, six years ago. Mr. and Mrs. Brady moved to Titusville and took up their home in the neat cottage they had erected, where they lived at the time of her death.
Beside the husband, who is left to mourn the loss of a faithful and devoted wife, there are two bright children, Miss Alline and Miss Daisy, who will miss the loving care which none but a mother can give.
Mr. Brady will continue to occupy the home and retain his daughters, to rear and educate them under his personal care and direction.
The death of Mrs. Brady was a subject of wide-spread sorrow and regret, but it was known that the angel of death had been hovering near for many days.
"Then fell upon the house a sudden gloom;
A shadow on those features fair and thin,
And softly from the hushed and darkened room
Two angels issued where but one went in."
