Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Jan. 20, 1859
Death: Mar. 26, 1910

Sarah Elizabeth Berry, daughter of Sgt McDonald and Julia A. Berry was born near Hollandsburg, Parke County departed this life March 26, 1910, age 51 years 2 months 6 days. She was the second child in a family of 9 children, 3 girls, 6 boys all of whom are living with the exception of one sister, who preceded her to the Great Beyond several years ago. During her girlhood days she was converted and joined the UB Church at Otterbein, but moved her membership to the Christian Church at Byron in 1904, where it still remains. She died in the full enjoyment of a Christian hope. July 16, 1881, she was married to Telemanchus Hill. To this union were born 13 children 8 of whom are living and were present at the funeral except Ralph who is in the west and could not be reached. One year ago last Nov she was stricken with paralysis from which she never entirely recovered. Before her bodily ailment she labored incessantly for the welfare of her family and her greatest desire was to keep the children in school. She was not of a showy or brilliant disposition but was possessed of those sturdy and enduring traits of character which go to make a good wife, loving mother and respected neighbor. She filled her station in life, performed her mission and was contented with her lot. To her children she has bequeathed the heritage of a name unsullied by the breath of suspicion and untouched by the taint of dishonor. She has gone to claim her reward and besides her children, brothers and sister, she leaves an aged father, a host of friends and neighbors to mourn her loss.
