"Arthur Hubbard and wife came up from Des Moines, Tuesday to attend the funeral of Mr. H's sister, Mrs. Libbie Sands."
In another column, same page, headed "Local News", it said "An obituary notice of Mrs. Libbie Sands will appear next week."
Laid to Rest
The remains of Mrs. Libbie Sands, of Los Angeles, Cal., whose death had previously been announced in The News, were brought to Spencer last week and laid to rest beside her husbannd in Riverside cemetery, services being held at the home of her brother Ackley Hubbard on Wednesday, Rector Morrow, of the Episcopal church in charge. The death of Mrs. Sands was very sudden. She made her home with her daughter, Mrs. C. H. Jennison, with whom she spent the evening prior to her death, appearantly in her usual health, and went to her own rooms in a cheerful state of mind. Mrs. Jennison on going to her mother's room the following morning, found her kneeling by her bed as if engaged in prayer, but lifeless. Mrs. Sands had risen and made preparations for a bath when the summons came, and evidently had been dead but a short time when found.
Deceased was born in St. Lawrence county, New York, in 1853, and with her parents and family came to Clay county in 1869. For a number of years after coming to Clay county she was engaged in teaching in which she was highly successful. She was married to Wm. Sands in 1875, and for several years continued to live in Spencer. On leaving Spencer, Mr. and Mrs. Sands lived in Des Moines for a few years and then moved to California on account of failing health of Mr. S., who died there about six years ago.
Mrs. Sands was a lady of exceptional intellecutal force, combined with exalted Christian character. Her sympathy together with material assistance, will long be remembered by many. She leaves one daughter, Mrs. Jennison, two brothers, Ackley Hubbard of Spencer and Arthur Hubbard of Des Moines, with numerous friends, to mourn her loss.
