"Death came and took the wife and mother from the home once so happy, leaving the little circle lonely indeed without her.
"Mrs. Drews had been sick but a few days and was not reported dangerously so. The news of her death, therefore, was sudden blow to our people, and called out the sympathies of the whole community toward the bereaved family.
"Mrs. Drews was born in Springfield, Ill., May 1st, 1868, being not yet 32 years of age at the time of her death. She was married in 1889, and came with her husband to Plainview about eight years ago, where she has been ever known as a kind hearted, neighborly, christian woman, a faithful wife and loving mother. Four children have been born to them, three of whom are living, two daughters, aged eight and six years, respectively, and a son, aged four. Funeral services were held on Tuesday at the church, conducted by Rev. Kermes, of Potsdam, and Rev. Nichols, of Rochester, and notwithstanding the severe weather, the house was crowded with sympathizing friends. The body was taken to Springfield, Ill., for burial where her parents still reside. The family, accompanied by Mr. Geo. Dickman, taking the noon train immediately after the services here.
"Mr. Drews can be assured of the sympathy, not only of the people of his own large congregation who have shown their feelings so unmistakably, but of every member of the community as well."
