Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Aug. 17, 1826
Jo Daviess County
Illinois, USA
Death: Sep. 23, 1904
Pottawatomie County
Kansas, USA

Mrs. Elizabeth Lantz was born near Galena, Illinois on August 17th. 1826. When quite young she moved with her parents to Missouri, where in her sixteenth year she was married to John Berry. To this union were born three daughters and four sons. In the year 1852, Mr. Berry died, three of their children preceded him to the better land. Three years later, she was united in marriage to Samuel Lantz at Parkville, Missouri. To this union was born one daughter, Laura. Mr. Lantz was called from this life about two years after their wedding life began.
She with her children came to Kansas in 1861, locating near Westmoreland, and near which place the greater part of her life since has been spent. After coming to Kansas she united with the Southern Methodist Church, later she became a member of the United Brethern Church, and at the time of her death she was a member of the Spring Creek Class. For some months she had been at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Laura Trowbridge, where she was tenderly cared for by her daughter, her son John and many other relatives, friends and neighbors. On Sunday at 3 p.m. September 23th,1904, after a long and patient life of suffering she passed away to the beyond, at the ripe age of 78 years,1 month and 8 days. Funeral services were conducted by her pastor, Rev.A.C. Tudor, at 2 p.m. on Monday morning, at the Adams Peak schoolhouse. The 6,7 and 8th verse of 4th. chapter of 2nd. Timothy were selected as a text for the very interesting sermon preached. The songs were "Haven of Rest" and Some Sweet Day, Bye and Bye" beautifully sang by the pastor and his wife. A respect to the departed one, and her remains were tenderly borne to their resting place by six of her grandsons-the sons of Augustine Berry, deceased. "Grandmother" or "Aunt Betty" as she was lovingly known, is survived by two sons, Uriah, now in Arkansas, John, and her widowed daughter, Mrs. Laura Trowbridge and many other relatives. She loved her Christ with all her heart, often hearing testimony of his saving power, and while she was willing and ready to go at his call, she clung to life because of the love she bore her family and many friends. Her Christian influence was great among those who new her. Now while sorrow fills our hearts because of her departure, and of the vacant place she filled so long and so well,yet, we know she has gone to a brighter, happier home where she waits to welcome her loved ones who are still left behind.
