EULOGY

Agatha Adela Vanterpool (affectionately known as Gartie or
Darta) was born on St. Thomas to Carl & Charlotte Ferdinand.

Her early interest was in the field of Nursing, however due
to her Mother's prolonged illness she was unable to pursue it.

She was married to the late Theodore Vanterpool on May 4,
1922. From this union twelve children were born, two died
at the early ages of 6 months and 10 years.

Mrs. Vanterpool was a very devoted wife and mother and
utilized all her motherhood years to bestow her love to her
children. They were carefully trained and well disciplined,
spiritually and morally.

Through the years her time was spent teaching Sunday
School and she also taught the pre-schoolers at a private
school conducted by her daughter, Louise V. Thomas.
Additionally, she nurtured her very beautiful flower garden,
which in those years served as a tourist attraction during
their island tour. She will also be remembered for her fine
baking which she did to help support her family. Many
island residents will recall that Christmas was not Christ-
mas without Miss. Gartie's sweet bread.

She was a very loving and kind hearted person. She depended
on God's guidance and loved to sing hymns of praise and
diligently search the scripture. Her favorite Biblical express-
ion was "Peace, Perfect Peace" and she lived an exemplary
life to this effect. She loved people and made many friend-
ships.

She will be missed by her family, friends and all who had the
opportunity to know her.


MAY SHE REST IN PEACE.
