LONG ILLNESS IS ENDED TODAY - Susanna Hower Breiner Succumbs to Long Illness of Cancer
Susanna Hower Breiner, 73, a lifelong resident of Adams county, died at her home, 127 East Monroe street , at 10:15 o'clock this morning, following a lingering illness of cancer. Mrs. Breiner had been in poor health for the past few years and for the last six months had been seriously ill.
Mrs. Breiner was the daughter of John and Barbara Hower, and was born in Adams county, July 6, 1850. September 27, 1868 she was married to Reuben Breiner, who survives. She was a member of the Zion Reformed church of this city. Seven children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Breiner, three of whom preceded their mother in death. The four surviving children are Mrs. S. G. Farrer, Ervin Breiner and Mrs. Elgin King, all of this city, and Mrs. L. J. Kase, of Huntington . There are two grandchildren, Arthur Breiner and Mrs. Al Lewis, of Decatur and one great granddaughter, Betty Lou Lewis.
Owing to the fact that the Reformed church is torn up preparatory to moving into the new building, the funeral service will be held in the Presbyterian church, Wednesday afternoon, the Rev. R. R. Elliker, pastor of the Reformed church, officiating. Short services will be held from the home on Monroe street at 2:30 o'clock. Interment will take place in Maplewood cemetery.
