Mrs. H.W. Maynard
It is with a feeling of sadness in our heart that we are called upon at this time to chronicle the death of Mrs. Henry Maynard of Jackson township. After suffering for many months past from cancer of the stomach, her death was unexpected at this time.
Julia C. Lane, the daughter of William and Julia Lane, was born at Troy, N.Y., June 22, 1850 and died at her home in Jackson township, Crawford county, Sunday, Feb. 2, 1913, aged sixty-two years, seven months and ten days. She came to Illinois with her parents in 187?. In 1883 she was united in marriage to Henry W. Maynard. They came to Iowa...and located on the farm where she died. To them were born eight children, seven of whom are living; Ruby, now Mrs. John Richardson of Omaha; Lilly, Mrs. A.J. Slechta; George, William, Harrison and Henry of this county and James of Fowler, Kansas, and Ernest who died when an infant. She also leaves to mourn her death, a brother, L.C. Lane of Troy, N.Y.
Mrs. Maynard was a loving and affectionate mother, always ready with a willing hand to furnish comfort to those about her. During her long months of suffering she was never heard to complain but still showed her cheerful disposition which was predominate throughout her whole life. Friends and neighbors will never forget her beautiful character, kind acts and cheerful words.
The sorrowing brother and children have the sympathy of the entire community in their hour of misfortune. But they may ever remember her Christian character and in these coming years may they ever look to Him, who guides us through life, down through the valley of the shadow of death. Then when the mists have cleared away, we may look into His face and hear Him say, "Well done, thou good and faithful servant, enter into the joy of thy Lord."
