Kane County
Illinois, USA
Death: Mar. 14, 1935


Mrs. Anna Diver one of our most loved and highly respected pioneer citizens died at her home southeast of town Thursday night, March 14. Having lived here since 1877 and always having occupied a higher place, her influence for good was strongly felt in the home, the neighborhood, and wherever she chose to go. Having a personal charm of manner which she encouraged by her love of music and high ideals of life she was an example worthy of being followed. During the last years of her life it was impossible for her to engage in many activities she enjoyed, but always in her heart and mind there was love for the beautiful and the good, and when life's golden sun set came to her, she no doubt welcomed it with the same radiant joy as the sunrise in glory which awaited her.

Anna Rebecca (Cook) Diver, daughter of John A. and Mary Cook, was born January 21, 1857, at Aurora, Illinois and died at her home southeast of Neosho Falls Thursday, March 14, 1935.
