OBITUARY - North Manchester Journal - May 8, 1879
Pauline Myers, wife of John in Myers, died at the home of her parents in Wabash on Saturday, at 11 a.m. May 3d, 1879 of heart disease, 21 years, 4 months and 11 days.
Mrs. Myers was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Elijah Hackleman, of Wabash; and was born in this county, December 22d 1857, her parents moving to the town of Wabash when she was but two years of age, and where she grew up to womanhood under the guardian care of Christian parents whose example she followed strictly. In January '70 she united with the Christian Church of that city to which her parents were also members. She was united in marriage to John N. Myers of that city, the now bereft companion, in February 77, with whom she had since happily lived, in this place, where, by her pleasant and gentle disposition she had gathered around her in this community many warm friends.
For the past year or more she had been and feeble health, but was not thought to be dangerously ill, but on the contrary improving. She went from this place to visit her parents at Wabash a week or 10 days ago. On Saturday last she seemed to her usual spirits, and near 11 o'clock, had some conversation with some of the members of the family regarding something she desired for dinner; but scarcely had they left the room where Mrs. Myers was, until her moaning struggle brought them back only to find her dying from what proved to be a heart effection, and without a moment's warning passed into the better land, leaving her husband and a little daughter 16 months old, with other relatives and a wide circle of near friends to mourn the sad loss of one so kind, loving, near and dear to them.
The funeral services took place at the residence of the deceased's parents at 10 o'clock Tuesday morning last, May 6th, and which was one of the largest attended in Wabash for some years, all the teachers from our school, and many scholars being present. Rev. S. Blount, pastor the Christian church connected services preaching an affective and very appropriate sermon on the occasion; he was assisted by Rev. Atkkinson; the choir aided in the exercises at the house and the grave, whither a large concourse of people followed, with solemn song.
