Perhaps they are not stars in the sky, but rather openings where our loved ones shine down to let us know they are happy. -Anonymous

Mrs. Rachel Corey, whose death was announced in the Advocate, last week, was born in Bergen, Norway, December 24, 1846, and in 1865 came to America, living at Madison for a year and then going to Chicago, where she was employed in the Palmer House for seven years. She was married there to Carl Sherman and in 1872 they removed to Philadelphia, where they lived until coming to Cumberland, in 1881, since which time, the deceased has lived on the farm in the town of Cumberland where she died. To Mr. and Mrs. Sherman five children were born, of whom but one, Mrs. William Degerman, survives. Mr. Sherman was killed upon the railroad track near his home in 1892, and a year later Mrs. Sherman was maried to T. G. Corey, now deceased. Mrs. Corey was reared in the Lutheran faith, and was a devout and consistent member of that church. A kind and charitable neighbor and friend, a Christian woman who showed her faith by her works, a devoted wife and mother grown weary in the service of others is at rest. Funeral services were held at the Methodist Episcopal church Thursday afternoon, Rev. F. H. Harvey officiating, and interment was at Lakeside. [Thursday, March 7, 1912, Cumberland Advocate, Cumberland, Wisconsin.]
