Lena Farmer daughter of Henry and Louise Boedeker.Lena Boedeker married Robert Edward Farmer.
Lena lived in Columbus all her life.She was naturally endowed with a cheerful and lovable disposition,and seemed happiest when making others happy around her.Loving and tender in friendship,she was always ready with words of comfort and encouragement,where needed.She was of a retiring nature,and her true worth was most appreciated by those who knew her well in her home.She gave her heart to God and united with the Methodist Church,and was a loved and devoted member of the church.
For the past 6 or 8 months she had been visiting her children in Houston and Palacios.
Mrs.Farmer passed away at the home of her daughter,Mrs.Tom Brandon.She had not been in the best of health for some months,but was not confined to her bed,and apparently was feeling very well last Sunday but shortly after eating dinner she started across the room and fell,and in a few moments was dead.
Funeral services were held for Lena Farmer Tuesday March 11,1919 at 4:30 p.m. from the Family Home with the Rev.C.P. Morgan,of the Methodist Church,officiating.
Her christian life will be to her children a sweet legacy,like a star of hope ever pointing them to the haven of rest,and influence will remain as a sweet perfume to bless and encourage them.
The large gathering of friends at her home and at the cemetery,the flower covered mound told of the love for her.We shall meet her when the night is past,and a day dawns in the land of God.
Pallbearers were Albert Hahn,Alex Mccormick,Chriss Grobe,C.K. Quinn,Will Wirtz and John Hastedt.
We shall miss her sweet face and form in her accustomed place in church.
