With much weakness and lonely feeling I will attempt to write an obituary of #my dear mother, Eliza Jane Fields
who has deceased this life. She was the daughter of John and Mary Hall, born April 27, 1890, deceased May 27,
1959, leaving her stay on earth 69 years and 1month old.
She was married to Wilson Fields July 3, 1908, the son of Henry Fields and Nervia Fields. To this union was
born 10 children; 6 girls and 4 boys. One son has preceded her in death, Grant Forester Fields. Three sisters and
1 brother, 39 grand- children, 3 great grandchildren and a host of friends mourn her loss.
Her sons were: Clarence Fields, Red Fox, Ky., Green Fields, Carcassonne, Ky., John Henry Fields, Hamilton,
Ohio. Daughters: Nervia Caudill, Fusonia, Ky., Mary Caudill, Fusonia, Ky., Bertie Holland, Fusonia, Ky., Rhoda
Begley, Hamilton, Ohio, Gracie Holland, Carbon Glo, Ky., Celia Caudill, Jeremiah, Ky. She joined the Old Regular
Baptist Church the later part of 1934. She took her fellowship at the James Memorial Church of Regular Baptist
and was a faithful member until she took sick. She was taken to the hospital on December 27, 1958, and in
January, 1959 she was operated on for cancer, which brought her death. While in the hospital and at home she
always had a smile for everyone. She said she didn't care to die except she hated to leave her children. While in
the hospital she told her daughter-in-law a few evenings before she died to look at those pretty white houses and
don't you see those angels flying around my bed. We feel that the angels of God came and took her soul home. If
the children ever expect to be with mother they must repent and be born again.
We feel that our loss is heaven's gain. Her request was that brother Hillis Reedy, Alva Caudill, Monroe Caudill
and Beckham Fields preach her funeral.
Written by her son,
Clarence Fields, Red Fox, Ky.
