LAYMAN. On the 24th of March 1895, of inflammation of the bowels, of which she suffered but one day, Alice, beloved wife of Joseph Layman, aged 23 years, 8 months, and 19 days. Deceased was born in Juniata Co., Pa., from whence she moved with her parents to Illinois. She was married five years ago to her surviving companion. She was highly esteemed by all who knew her, her sweet disposition, kind manners and tender heart winning friends everywhere. She will be sadly missed in the home circle and community. Beside her companion she leaves three small children, one being an infant daughter but 3 months old, also her father W. H. Beidler, and six sisters and three brothers. Her mother, two sisters and one brother preceded her. Interment at the Mennonite M. H. at Lancaster, Ill., J. S. Shoemaker and Jacob Groff officiated.
"Dearest sister, thou hast left us,
Here thy loss we deeply feel;
But 'til God that hath bereft us,
He can all our sorrows heal."
Human hands have tried to save thee,
Tender care was all in vain;
Holy angels came and bore thee,
From this weary world of pain.
Sister, thou wast mild and lovely,
Gentle as the summer breeze,
Pleasant as the air of evening,
When it floats among the trees.
