Only Sleeping

Alice E., wife of Mr. Fred Schwemm, living about three miles west of Barrington, passed away at 11:30 o'clock Friday evening, May 29, at the age of 30 years, 5 months and 7 days.

Mrs. Schwemm was born December 22, 1865, in the State of Iowa, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Pierce. When quite young she removed to Barrington where she made her home with her grandmother, Mrs. S. E. Hastings. Thirteen years ago she was united in marriage to Mr. Fred Schwemm. Two sons, one 12 years of age and the other 7 years old, survive to mourn the loss of a kind mother, and to comfort the father in this his darkest hour of trouble.

The funeral occurred Tuesday morning at 11 o'clock, Rev. Theodore Suhr of the Salem Church, and of which she was an active member, and Rev T. E. Ream of the Methodist church, officiating. The Woman's Missionary Society of the Salem church, of which she was a leading member, attended the funeral in a body. The remains were interred in Evergreen cemetery and were followed to their last resting place by an immense procession of people, an evidence of the high esteem in which Mrs. Schwemm was held.

Among those who attended Mrs. Schwemm's funeral Tuesday were: Messrs and Mesdames J. Martin, A. H. Kline, and A. Smith, Messrs. C. Albright, W. Gibson and F. A. Cady and daughters, and Mrs. J. Ebel.

The Review extends its sympathy to the bereaved family.
