Caroline Elizabeth Meyers was born in Ripley County, Indiana, July 23, 1858. After a brief illness during which willing hands did all that loving hearts could suggest, that grim and silent reaper, Death, came and claimed her for his own, February 16, 1915, aged 56 years, 6 months, and 23 days.
On December 19, 1875, she was united in marriage to Anson J. Billings. To their union were born nine children, four sons and five daughters. Her husband and two children preceded her in death, her husband in November 1899, Ella at the age of 31 and Edgar in infancy.
After their marriage they made Iowa their home for one year, coming from that state to their present home 2 miles northwest of Wyaconda.
Deceased leaves to mourn her departure, three sons, Charles, John and Clarence; four daughters, Alta, Florence, Ethel and Lula. An aged mother, Mrs. Case and one brother John Meyers of Vincennes, Iowa; two half sisters, Mrs. Nora Mott and Mrs. Lula Arnold of Keokuk, Iowa, also survive her, as well as 15 grandchildren and a host of friends and neighbors.
Funeral services were conducted in the Christian Church at Wyaconda by Rev. F. M. Baker, pastor of the Baptist Church, at 2 p.m., February 18, 1915. Interment took place in the Blattner Cemetery. May the holy spirit comfort the bereaved ones in their sorrow.
