Mrs. Dr. A.J. Hale's Death
Mrs. Emma Hale was born in Lawrence county, Indiana April 13, 1838, where she lived for some years. She embraced religion at a very early date in life. She was married to Dr. A.J. Hale May 5, 1859, and was the mother of 6 children, five of whom are still living. she was the life and light of her home, whether in prosperity or misfortunes. She was always ready to do her duty as a Christian, a wife and a mother, filling her home with love and sunshine and making those who knew her feel that this life was worth living and always putting her trust in God and teaching her children that there is a life beyond the grave which we must prepare for if we reap the reward which is ours if we are faithful unto death.
She moved with her husband to Davis County, IA in the year of 1864, where she lived until her death which occured June 23, 1894, after a continued illiness of about 6 months. Her sufferings were great from the time she took to her bed until her death, but she bore them well, continually putting her trust in God and when she was told she must die she said "Lord, thy will be done." and prayed to God that his blessing might rest on her children and dear husband, that she might meet them on that beautiful shore where death is no more and all would be peace and happiness forever. Mrs. Hale was a member of Liberty baptist Church, and has lived a consistant Christian life for more than 40 years. She was loved and respected by all who knew her.
The funeral services took place at the Christian church at Monterey, Davis co. IA. Services were conducted by Rev. Seamster, Pastor of the church of which Mrs. Hale was a member.
The remains were conveyed to the Bergher Cemetery for final interment, where a large number of friends followed her to her last resting place.
To await that great day when we shall all meet our God..
Sweet rest that in Heaven alone can be found
She has gained that sweet home where blessings abound.
Where earth's weary Pilgrims are welcomed and blessed.
Beholding their Lord and enjoying sweet rest.
