Oliphant, Catherine d. 26 Feb 1913 77 yrs. 9 mos. 12 days R 10 S 186
Oliphant. On Wednesdy, February 26, 1913, at 10 a.m., at the residence of her son-in-law, John R. Ihrie, 229 Massachusetts avenue northeast, Catharine, widow of the late Benjamin F. Oliphant.
     I've looked on hands whose form and hue
     A sculptor's dream might be,
     Yet were her aged, wrinkled hands
     Most beautiful to me.

     Alas, alas, the nearing time,
     And the sad, sad day to me;
     When 'neath the daisies, out of sight
     Those hands must folded be.

     But, oh! beyond the shadowy lands
     Where all is bright and fair,
     I know full well those dear old hands
     Will palms of victory bear.

     When crystal streams through endless years
     Flow over golden sands,
     And where the old are young again,
     I'll clasp my mother's hands.
Funeral will take place Saturday, at 9 a.m., from St. Joseph's Church. Interment at Congressional cemetery. Relatives and friends invited to attend.
