A common tradition in many areas is to mark the death of a person with small memorial cards that contained important details about the deceased and the service to mark their passing. Often there will be a comforting bible verse or poem in the card.
This is the memorial card for Fannie B. (Bennett) Meadows. My great grandmother kept the memorial card from her mother’s funeral tucked away in an old family bible until I found it after her death in 1999.
Tucked inside the memorial card she also kept the obituary that was published in the Flint Journal at the time of Fannie’s death.
