Her life was one of Christian service having been a member of the Church of Christ for twenty years. The body was taken to Ames and the funeral preached by Rev. Morgan after which interment was made in the Ames cemetery. The relatives here have the sympathy of numerous friends and relatives.
The thought that we may meet her there,
And walk with her the heavenly plain
Alone can keep us from despair,
And bring us comfort in our pain.
The thought of death is very sweet--
The grave can have no chill or gloom
For those who have mother to meet
Beyond in fields of living bloom. --
Ella Wheeler Wilcox
