From the Lisbon Herald:

Another Veteran Gone.

Died--West--At her residence in Lisbon, Iowa on the 29th day of August 1878, Mrs. Elizabeth S. (Perry) West, aged 85 years, 11 months and 20 days.

For some weeks past Mrs. West has been just outside of the golden city. The gates of which were indeed ajar and she was permitted to catch frequent glimpses of the beautiful beyond. But on Thursday, shortly afternoon, they were thrown wide open and she was permitted to enter in and hear the welcome greeting of her Master "Come thou Blessed." Today we mourn her as dead, she lives the life immortal and reigns with the faithful who have gone before.

Her funeral was held today at 10 o'clock in the United Brethren Church of which she has for twenty five years been an earnest and faithful member. The services were conducted by Rev. T.D. Adams assisted by Rev. Manwell, in the presence of a large and deeply affected audience...and of her it can be truthfully said, "She did what she could" for the Master.
