MRS. A. J. WOODMAN
Alice Butts was born in Cuba, New York, on March 30th, 1852. When fourteen years of age she moved with her parents to Ripon, Wisconsin, and a year later to Russell, Iowa. She finished her College course in 1874.
She was united in marriage to A. J. Woodman at Russell, Iowa, on Sept. 1st, 1875, to which union were born six children: Abbie W. Boyd, Edward, Bertha, Arthur, Helen and John Herbert Woodman. Two of the above, Edward and Bertha, have preceded her in death. All of her living children were with her in her last sickness. She leaves to mourn her loss her husband and four children, two brothers and one sister, and two grandchildren.
She was converted when fifteen years of age. She was baptized by Rev. Wm. Sturgeon and united with the Chariton Baptist church, later removing her membership to form the Russell Baptist church of which she has ever since been an active member.
She was a faithful Christian devoted to the cause of Christ. She loved her church and all it stands for. She was very zealous in the cause of missions. In fact, everything that was calculated to lift mankind to a higher plane of living and make the world better received her most hearty support. In her brief illness her mind was very busy with many of these problems.
She was intensely patriotic and took a deep interest in our National questions and followed with interest the progress of the war in which she kept herself well informed and showed she was a true representative of our American mothers of the past.
She was a kind and indulgent mother always thinking of the welfare of her children and by her own life will leave the impression of her own character on her children and those with whom she came in contact.
In her last sickness she expressed her faith and trust in her Saviour and her complete trust in God's care, saying she had no fear of death, that God would take care of her, that she would like to live to enjoy her children and husband but she would leave it all in God's hands.
Funeral services were held at the home, Thursday at 2 p.m., conducted by her pastor, Rev. M. J. Sigler, assisted by Revs. W. L. Cain and G. W. Koser. Interment was made in the Russell cemetery.
