Obit from IL Genealogy Trails website:

ANNA (ZOOK) GARWICK, was born in 1844 near Chambersburg, Pa. She was the daughter of Abram and Anna Zook, and came to Illinois with her parents in 1856, settling at Albany, this county, and in 1859 moved to Clyde.

In March, 1862, she married to Henry Garwick. To this union seven children were born--five boys and two girls, one son dying in infancy. She had been in ill health since last spring, and sought the most skillful physicians in the hope that she might be restored to health. The last two months she had been confined to her bed and although she had the best of care and attention, the disease (cancer) baffled the skill of the physicians.

In early life she united with the River Brethren church and for twenty-six years she walked steadfastly in that faith. Hers was a peculiar faith, but she was consistent and earnest in her convictions. She leaves her husband and six children to mourn her loss. The funeral services will be held tomorrow forenoon at ten o'clock in the River Brethren church at Franklin Corners, Clyde. Rev. Abram Myers of Freeport, and Rev. Joe Shirk of Stephenson county will officiate. The remains will be interred in the Franklin cemetery in Clyde township. -- Contributed by Marcia Sibley - The Whiteside Sentinel 28 Nov 1889 Front Pg.
