Mrs. Tish Buried Thursday afternoon

Funeral services for Mrs. W. P. Tish were held at 2 o'clock Thursday afternoon from the Church of Christ. The Rev. N. W. Underwood, pastor of the church conducted the services. Burial was made in West Liberty cemetery west of town.

Pallbearers were Ben Powell, Geo. F. Johnson, R. F. Gregson, Sam E. Smith, Geo. Pratt and Chas. Zorn. Mrs. J. L. Ravitts and Mrs. Geo. Morgan sang "We Are Going Down the Valley" and "There Will Be No Night There," accompanied at the piano by Mrs. Forest Jenkins.

Mrs. Tish died late Tuesday evening at her home. She had been in failing health for the past year and had been very ill for the past month.

Following is the obituary:

Jennie Belle Tish, daughter of M. V. and Mary Alderman, was born near Fremont, in Keokuk county, April 17, 1870, and passed from us on May 7, 1935, at the age of 65 years and 20 days.

On February 12, 1890, she was united in marriage to Preston Tish. Through the years they have been residents of Poweshiek county. Eight children, three sons and five daughters, were born to them: Harry of Swea City, Tracy of Marshalltown, Mable Wolfe and Alice Wolfe of Fremont, Doris of Montezuma, Walter of Shenandoah, and Nellie Thompson and Winnie Calhoun of Montezuma. These children with the husband mourn the loss of their loved one. Sharing with them in their grief are two sisters: Emma Dean of Ottumwa and Della Henderson of Des Moines; two brothers: S. F. Alderman of Oskaloosa and Jess Alderman of Fremont; and 19 grandchildren and other relatives and friends.

She became a member of the West Liberty church in 1892. On March 25, 1926, her membership was transferred to the Church of Christ at Montezuma. Her last attendance at church was at the Easter service, at which time she expressed her gratitude for the joy of Christian worship.

Mrs. Tish lived a long and useful life, devoted to the interests of her family. No sacrifice was too great for her to make for her children or her home.
