She leaves to mourn her departure a husband, 5 sons and 4 daughters, 13 grandchildren, 4 sisters, 1 brother, and many relatives and friends. She united with the Mennonite Church in her twentieth year and was a devoted member until death. Her light shone brightly for the Master in the home where she will sadly missed, and in the community where she lived for so many years. She served her Master faithfully in her sphere in the home, a devoted wife and loving mother. The influence of her patient, self-sacrificing life will ever be felt and never forgotten. The Lord has called her to her bright and eternal reward. During her closing days on earth the family gathered about her bedside and she bade them all goodbye and told them to meet her in heaven. She longed for rest and heaven. Funeral services, Jan. 12, were conducted at the Plain,s Baptist Church by E. S. Hallman. Text Rev. 14:13. Interment in the Purcell Cemetery. A large concourse of friends met to pay the last tribute of respect to one whom they knew and loved. "Blessed are they that mourn; for they shall be comforted.
