consistent Christian life. She was a lifelong member of the Methodist Church and was a regular
attendant at services when her health permitted.
Funeral services were held at the Methodist Church, Thursday, August 1, at 2:30 p.m. conducted by
the Rev. R. C. Druse. Interment was made in Wapello Cemetary. Bearers were her grandsons.
