Southern Christian Advocate issue dated May 18, 1899 Vol 62 #48 page 11 col 2 From the Sandor Teszler Library at Wofford College:
Mrs Ida Izadore Sellers, nee Campbell, wife of Thomas W Sellers, was born December 17, 1866, and departed this life February 9, 1899, at her home near Mullins, SC. She was converted and joined the Methodist Church in her tenth year and has been a life-time Christian. Ten years ago under the pastorate of Rev John A Porter she professed the blessing of "entire santification." She carried the seal of holiness on her brow. She was an active member, always ready to take part in the enterprises of the church, and was a regular attendant upon the ordinances of the church until loss of health made it impossible to enjoy this great privilege. Her heart and hand were ever open to every call of mercy. Her life had been such that on realizing her earthly end was approaching, she was calm and trustful, with such abiding faith in Him whom she had learned to trust, that death robbed of all its fear and in the Christian's peace she fell asleep in Jesus.
Just before her death she offered up to the Throne of Grace two beautiful prayers, for her church and then for her loved ones. The last words were, "Heaven, sweet heaven, How beautiful!" May the good Lord bless her bereaved husband and two baby girls, and santify this sad bereavement to their good.
