During her illness she was tenderly cared for by her family and it was a comfort for her to have them all with her at this time. During the four months of intense suffering, no word of complaint came from her and the patience and cheerfulness shown was marvelous. She was a good neighbor and numbered her friends by her acquaintances. Those who knew her best loved her most, and the entire community is saddened by her passing.

Funeral services were held from the Baptist church last Thursday at 2 o'clock conducted by Rev. F. M. Burtch of Notus, assisted by Rev. F. P. Petit. Interment was made in Riverside cemetery. The sympathy of their many friends is extended to the bereaved family.
