Obituary from Mt. Pleasant, IA Free Press 1879
We clip from the Shenandoah Reporter the following notice of the death of Mrs. Bereman. She was the sister of Ford Nickell, our county recorder, and was a resident of Jefferson township in this county about sixteen years after her marriage, also living for about two years south of this city.
BEREMAN- On Saturday, May 3, 1879, of consumption, Mrs. Sarah Bereman, wife of W.A. Bereman, aged 44 years.
She was a patient sufferer for eight months, but the Angel of Death at length put an end to her afflictions, and her immortal spirit took its flight to the Land of the Blessed, where pain and suffering are unknown, and where all tears shall be wiped from her eyes. She resided in this neighborhood for eight or nine years, and enjoyed the love and friendship of those with whom she was intimate. Her three children will now sadly experience how lonely is the home that has no mother.- She was a member of the Congregational church, and in her life and in her death witnessed a good confession. The funeral services took place, last Sabbath morning, in the Congregational church, Rev. Wm. Plasted conducting them and preaching the funeral sermon. A large audience assembled to testify their respect and sympathy, and followed her remains to our cemetery, where they laid them down to rest.
