Sterling Gazette June 15, 1925
A number of old friends of the Anning and Hubbard families attended the funeral of Herbert M. Anning of Monrovia, California, Monday afternoon at 2 o'clock in Grace Episcopal Church. A party of 18 or 20 friends motored out from Chicago to attend the funeral, returning late in the afternoon. The pall bearers as well as most of the Chicago party were members of the J.V. Farwell organization, with which Mr. Anning was connected for so many years The service was read by Rev. Wallace Bristor, rector of Grace Church, and the vested choir sang "Lead Kindly Light" and "Nearer My God to Thee". Internment was in the Hubbard family lot in Riverside cemetery. Additional pathos marked the service by reason of the critical illness of Mrs. Anning, who was formerly Miss Belle Hubbard of Sterling, and the fact that their son was also prevented from being here by reason of the need of his presence near his mother. Hervey Anning of New York City, Miss Ruth Anning, Arthur and Harold Anning of Chicago, all formerly of Sterling, cousins of the deceased, arrived Monday and attended the services. Mr. and Mrs. Shipper and son and Mrs. Anning, the latter a sister-in-law of H.M. Anning, were here from Tonica. Mrs. Shipper was formerly Miss Mary Anning. Mrs. Harriet Hubbard Tillson and H. Wilkes Bunn, of Rockford, and Mrs. Marion Tillson Silkett of Columbia, Missouri, were also among the many out of town people here to attend the funeral.
