On the 30th of June, 1890, in Stephenson Co., Ill., Sister Phoebe, wife of W. H. Beidler, aged 45 years, 3 months and 21 days: She was sick only 4 days, but bore her sufferings with patience, waiting for the Lord to call her home. She leaves a sorrow-ing husband and 10 children. Three children had died before her. She was a member of the church for 22 years. It was her desire to see all the children converted to God, and united with the church. Her oldest daughter was on a visit to Pa. at the time of her death. She was born in Pennsylvania, and moved with her husband to Ill. four years ago where she resided until her death. Her favorite hymn was "My Home is bright and fair."
My body you will now convey
As in the silent tomb to lay,
There to rest and to remain
Till God shall call and rise again.
Companion dear, and children all,
Now I am dead, to you I call,
Prepare for death and don't delay,
Your Father's warning to obey.
