Death of Mrs. Dr. Chase
Died Nov 17, 1886, Ellen J. Chase, aged sixty years and two months.
The subject of the foregoing notice was born at Shoreham, NY, Sept 17, 1826. Removing thence with her parents, in infancy, to Wyoming County, NY, she grew to womanhood and July 17, 1849, married Dwight W. Chase, MD. In 1865 they removed to Clayton County, Iowa. Having experienced religion, she united with the Congregational Church at Elkader in 1870. The fall of 1879, her children having preceded her, she with her husband joined them in Kansas, where she continued to reside up to the time of her death. She leaves a husband and two children, Dr. DW Chase, Mrs. Kate E. Butler and Mrs. Ella L. White.
Mrs. Chase was in all respects an exemplary wife and mother, devoted to the home circle, yet enjoying to the utmost the companionship of friends and neighbors; generous and warm hearted she attracted all, while her gentle ways yielded an influence for good far beyond the reach of other methods. No words can add and none take from the perfect symmetry of her life and the estimation of those who shared her friendship.
Goodbye, wife, mother and friend. When our eyes shall turn away from earth, wearied with its sufferings, may our lives be as blameless as thine.
