Mrs. H.P. Dingus Dies
Mrs. H.P. Dingus died at her home in Mound City, last Friday morning, after an extended illness. She had been in poor health for a number of years. The shock resulting from the death of her son, Charles H. Dingus, who died while in the service during the World war, was great, and Mrs. Dingus never fully recovered from its effect. For some time she had been gradually growing weaker until death resulted. Funeral services were held at the Christian church, Tuesday afternoon, conducted by Rev. J.W. Hays, and interment was in Battlefield cemetery. Amanda J. Osborne was born July 23, 1860, in Fayette County, Pennsylvania. She with her family came to Linn County in March of 1882 and settled at the Osborne home near Battlefield school house, southeast of Mound City. The subject of this sketch was united in marriage to Henry P. Dingus on March 9, 1890. To this union there were born four children, three sons and one daughter. The children were Elmer W. Dingus, living near Mound City; Mrs. Mae Maddeford, of Washington, D.C.; Greg A. Dingus, living near Pleasanton; and Charles H. Dingus, who gave his life on his country's altar during the World war. Those who knew Mrs. Dingus best loved her best. Her home was known to neighbors as a place of kindness and generosity. She was a person of kind and gentle disposition, doing and saying things to help and organization she remained a faithful and consistent member to the close of her life. For many months she was an invalid, suffering greatly. She bore her affliction bravely and without complaining. Death probably came to her as a welcome visitor. She departed this life on January 25, 1924, at her home on the south part of town.
