Mt. Pleasant Woman Laid To
Rest With A Simple Service.
Many Friends Attend the Funeral
Which Was Held From the Epis-
copal Church__ Interment at
Forest Home Cemetery.
The funeral of the late Mrs. Sarah E. Andrews, was held this afternoon at two o’clock from St. Michael’s Episcopal church on East Washington street. Many friends, including representatives of the various women’s clubs, of the city, were in attendance.
The service was appropriately simple and impressive; being the regular service of the Episcopal Church for such occasions, and was in charge of the rector Dr. W. T. Jackson; The organist, Mr. E. John Richards, played by request, Chopin’s Funeral March, and the choir sang two of Mrs. Andrew’s favorite hymns, _ “My Faith Looks Up to Thee,” and “ St. Andrews,” from the Episcopal hymn book. Many beautiful flowers were on the casket and in the room, sent by friends, relatives and clubs. Among the latter who sent flowers were; The Ramblers’ club, the Ladies’ Library Association, The Parish Guild, and St. Michael’s Guild.
The pallbearers were __ Messrs, Jas Burd, Henry Timmerman, W. S. Withrow, A. L. Eaton, Fred Van Hon, and Harry Ambler of Burlington.
Those in attendance from a distance were, Mr. Ray Van Benthuysen of St. Louis, a nephew; Lieut. Everett Bowman of York, Nebr., nephew, and Mrs. Walter Fowley of Kansas City, a step-daughter.
The following appreciation of Mrs. Andrew was written by Mrs. W. F. Kopp:
One day enter a garden of beautiful flowers and find satisfaction in the general harmony of color, but in the midst of it all will be noticed one flower, which has characteristics all of it own, separating it in no way from the rest but making it distinctive; perhaps its color may be a little brighter, cultivation may have changed its manner of growth, or the gardener may have so placed it, that it has been touched by Nature’s charm of sun and rain an thus has grown a little finer.
Thus Mrs. Sarah E. Andrews was a woman of superior force among women. She desired to be a part of every activity and interest beloved by women. She was never ambitious to excel others, but God-given qualities and graces made her distinctive among friends and acquaintances. A spiritual insight, acquired only by a spiritual life, held her close to things lofty and divine. A wonderfully bright intellect opened up to her, in all of it lavishness, the world beautiful. She had found the treasures in Nature, art and literature and it was especially pleasant to hear her original and just criticisms of affairs and books. Not what others thought, but what she thought was her modest contribution.
Hers was a generous nature in its broadest sense; no jealousies warped and belittled her judgment; no unkind thoughts filled her mind. Her appreciation of the smaller gifts in others proved to them an incentive, and the young found in her a gracious and loving guide. A heart true as steel, and a sympathy sincere made her dear to home and friends; her hand was ever gentle and loving in its touch, and openly and gladly it dealt out blessings.
Gently on that winter morning Mrs. Sarah E. Andrews left her earthly home, and entered her Heavenly Mansion, towards which she had looked with gleaming eyes, and of which she had spoken with assured Knowledge.
