Cecelia Ann Howard Lyon
Birth: Mar. 28, 1833
Sandusky County
Ohio, USA
Death: Nov. 29, 1866
Dubuque County
Iowa, USA

LYON In this city, Nov. 29, 1866, Mrs. Cecelia Anna, wife of Delose E. Lyon, Esq., aged 33 years and 6 months.
Funeral services will be held at the Congregational Church, on Sabbath, December 2d, at 2-1/2 o'clock P.M.
Mrs. Lyon was in the prime of womanhood. She was educated at Oberlin, Ohio, where, having faithfully pursued the course of studies for four years, she graduated. She early in life accepted and received most heartily the doctrines of an experimental religion as taught in the Sacred Scriptures, and connected herself with the Congregational church at Oberlin, Ohio.
She was married to Mr. Lyon July 30, 1857. In the spring of 1860 they came to reside in Dubuque.
She connected herself with the Congregational church of this city, and has led a most consistent Christian life, having a hearty sympathy with all who strove to do honor to the name of her blessed Master, and to promote the welfare of His people.
Mrs. Lyon has contemplated the almost certainty of her approaching death, for a number of months, and in view of it had made such arrangements for the welfare of her surviving husband and children as only a true Christian wife and mother could.
She leaves to mourn her early death a father and mother, two brothers, and one sister; a husband and four children one an infant of a few hours and a large circle of loving friends, neighbors, and the church of her connection.
