Heatwole. - Fannie A., widow of the late Pre. Jos. F. Heatwole, died of pneumonia and heart trouble, Jan. 18 at the home of her nephew and niece, Bro. and Sister Ira Showalter near Harrisonburg, Va., where she had gone to spend a short time; aged 70 y. 8 m. She was sick only four days. She confessed Christ as her personal Savior in early life and united with the Mennonite Church of which she was a faithful member for over half a century. On Dec. 1, 1870, she was united in marriage with Bro. Heatwole who was called to the ministry July 25, 1880, with whom she labored, faithfully performing the part of a minister's wife for over thirty years; at one time laboring with him in the W. Virginia mission for seven months. By her kind acts and deeds of love and mercy she made many friends by whom she will not soon be forgotten. She served as an active deaconess in the church in the Middle district for a number of years. In the demise of Sister Heatwole the family has lost a kind mother, a bright example to follow; the church a devoted member, the community a kind and respected neighbor. She was the mother of four sons: Bishop Jacob A., of LaJunta, Colo., John E. of Harrisonburg, Pre. Melvin J. and Deacon Enos E. Heatwole of Dayton, Va., and Annie Coakly of Dayton and Ina Rhodes of Hinton, Va. Funeral services were conducted at the Bank Church on the 15th in the presence of a large audience by Bros. L. J. Heatwole and J. L. Stauffer. Text, Luke 27:28. Her body was laid to rest in the cemetery near by, by the side of her departed husband.
