Obituary
Unidentified Newsclipping - 1891
SHAFFER.--Jane Vosburgh, widow of the late Thomas Shaffer, was born in Ulster County, New York, Sept., 17, 1817, and died in Phoenixville, Pa., Jan. 4, 1891. When quite young she found Christ, at once united with the Methodist Episcopal church, and remained in fellowhip with it. Her husband united with the church about the same time, and both were earnest members. Having kindred aims, they found much happiness in the service of God, in the family, and in the church. Their house was the home of many an itinerant. For many years in middle life Sister Shaffer was an invalid, but found God a present help, an unfailing stay. In later years she enjoyed a good degree of health, and within a few days of her death was quite active in home and church work. She was much interested in the Woman's Foreign Missionary Society, and for several years accompanied the president to the branch meetings. A cold, pneumonia, and death came in quick succession, but found her ready. One son, Vosburgh Shaffer, and one daughter, Mrs. Clara Mills, survive her.
