MRS. JOHN BAER DEAD.
Was one of Waynesboro's Oldest and Most Respected Ladies.
Mrs. Barbara, wife of John Baer died at her home 105 South Church street Sunday night at 11:45 o'clock after an illiness of four weeks, in the 83rd year of her age. Her death was principally caused by the infirmities of old age. She was an invalid for the past years, the result of an accident in which her hip was fractured, yet she bore her sufferings with remarkable patience and cheerfulness.
Mrs. Baer was one of the eleven children of Abraham Deardorff and was born and raised north of town. In 1868 she was married to John Baer, becoming his second wife. She resided here for the past twenty four years, having moved from near Five Forks. She was a consistent member of the Lutheran church for upwards of thirty years, and was noted for her kindness of heart and her cheerful disposition. Though she had no children of her own, yet she lavished upon her step children all of a mother's love and gentleness. Her devotion to her family, her church and the cause of religion generally was prominent in her character.
Mrs. Baer is survived by her aged husband, one brother, John, New Franklin, one sister, Miss Catherine Deardorff, from whom she has never been seperated, and these stepchildren: Dr. B. Frank, and John H., Baltimore; Samuel J., Wilmington, Del.; Mrs. Samuel B. Hess, Watertown, South Dakota; David W. and Mrs. John F. Spangler, this place.
Funeral Thursday at 10 a.m. with service at the house; interment in Green Hill Cemetery.
