Obit: Miss Mary Ringlieb was born in North Germany July 6, 1866 and died in Audubon, IA April 18, 1919, aged 52 years, 9 months, 18 days. She came to this country with her parents and settled in Benton county, IA in 1881.

She has a sister, Mrs W O Scott of Exira and a brother Anthony is somewhere in the west. She also leaves 11 grandchildren.
Three years ago she and her husband moved to Audubon that they might rest from heavy work and enjoy the evening of their lives in looking backward at the noonday and early morning of their life. But Mrs Baier was not well and after a long siege of sickness as the sun was sinking in the west, she closed her life here Good Friday and began the new day of Eternal Joy, for Mrs Baier was a Christian woman. She was a member of the Lutheran church. The husband will miss her and the children and grandchildren will remember her. The one to miss her love and sympathy and the others to remember her kind words and loving deeds.
