"Obituary - Anderson
Lecy F. Lane was born in Peoria county, Illinois, September 10, 1844. Died at her home, eight and one-half miles north-west of Skidmore, Missouri, February 19, 1914, aged sixty-nine years, five months and nine days. She was united in marriage to Thaddeus Anderson January 7, 1863. To this union four children were born, two of whom died in infancy. those remaining are Ulysses A., who with his wife and five children live at Hopkins, and Loren C. of Skidmore. She leaves also two sisters and two brothers, Mrs. Mary J. Wilson, of Cherokee, Oklahoma; Mrs. J. M. Wilson, of Skidmore, J. M. Lane of Tulsa, Oklahoma; and M. E. Lane of Kingman, Kansas, who with her husband mourn her departure.
The deceased united with the Presbyterian church at Walkups Grove in 1874. She was a devoted wife and mother loving the simple home life which she gladly shared with all who came.
Funeral services were held at Burr Oak church Saturday morning at 11 o'clock, conducted by Rev. C. H. Sauceman. Interment in the Burr Oak cemetery.
It is difficult to pay a fitting tribute to the memory of so noble a woman, on whose everyday life was embellished by the most charming and lovable attributes of her sex. A faithful wife and a loving mother at all times and under all circumstances, she seemed born to inspire the love and respect of all who were so fortunate as to be acquainted with her. No one was more willing to aid the suffering, cheer the desponding, sustain the weak and to throw over the frailties of our race the mantle of Christian charity and when sickness and death came to her, as it comes to all, neighbors and friends vied with each other in acts of loving kindness and tender solicitude, and many were the willing hands and hearts ready to assist the physician and family in attempting to fight back the ravages of the disease - to avert the inevitable - but love and skill were equally of no avail. The great destroyer had placed his signet upon her brow and today, hundreds who loved her living, mourn her dead.
