Funeral of Mrs. John Eggleston Last Monday
Violet A. Hyde, the only child of Cyrus Lyens and Susan M. (Kuntz) Hyde, was born on March 14, 1882, on the farm near Brock, where she had resided ever since, and departed this life in the St. Joseph Hospital in Centerville, August 24, 1929, at the age of 47 years, 5 months and 10 days. She was united in marriage to John Austin Eggleston, December 20, 1905. To this union were born five children, two who have preceded their mother in death, Warren Austin and an infant son. Besides her husband she leaves to mourn three children, Herbert Cyrus, Austin E. and Ida Viola Eggleston, all at home, besides many other relatives and a host of friends. She remembered her Creator in the days of her youth, publicly accepted Christ as her personal Savior and united with the Brock Methodist Church, where she remained a faithful and consistent member until the end. For many years she was the loyal and efficient organist of the church. The passing of this good woman came as a great shock to the entire neighborhood, as she was taken suddenly sick, and last Saturday morning she was rushed to the hospital in Centerville, where she was operated on for appendicitis, and all that professional skill and loving hands could do was done, but to no avail. At 8 o’clock in the evening of the same day she quietly and peacefully slipped away into the land of the unclouded skies to be with Him whom she trusted to the end. The influence of this noble character will be felt in the neighborhood for years to come. While she was quiet and unassuming in disposition, she manifested a great interest in the welfare of her community, both in the church as well as the public school. Just last Wednesday she entertained the Ladies Aid Society in her home, and she was always willing to share her part of the burdens and responsibilities that came to her. She always had a smile for everyone and her home was always open to her friends and neighbors. She was happy in her home life and possessed wonderful love for her companion and children, and she counted it a great pleasure to tenderly care for her dear mother who passed to her reward last January 3. Those who knew her best loved her most. She will be sadly missed in the home as well as the entire community.
