MRS. SARAH ANN AURAND

MRS. A. G. AURAND PASSES FROM LIFE - END COMES AFTER A WEEK'S ILLNESS OF PNEUMONIA
After battling bravely against pneumonia for a week, Mrs. A. G. Aurand passed peacefully away at 7 o'clock Sunday evening, February 15th. The disease was aggravated by asthma with which she had been a sufferer for some time, and combined with her age, there seemed at no time any hope of recovery. Mrs. Sarah Ann Baker was born at Clyde, Ohio, November 7, 1842, and thus at the time of her death reached the age of 70 years, 3 months, and 8 days. She came to Illinois with her parents, and was united in marriage in Hampshire to Abraham G. Aurand, January 25, 1867, with whom she lived in happy wedlock a little over 47 years. Seven children were born to them, one dying in infancy and another a little later in life. The surviving children left to mourn with the husband are two sons, Harrison G. of Barrington, and Wesley R. of Elgin, and three daughters, Mrs. Mary Kadau of Huntley; Mrs. Emma C. Warren of Elgin; and Mrs. Lydia A. Samuelson of Hampshire. She leaves also twenty grandchildren, and five brothers, George, John, Jacob, and William Baker of Hampshire, and Harrison Baker of Clyde, Ohio and one sister, Mrs. Lydia Bauman (Bowman) of Elgin. At age fourteen years she was converted to Christianity and joined the Evangelical Church and remained a faithful member and earnest worker in that church throughout her life. She was an indulgent wife and devoted mother, as a neighbor she was kind and thoughtful, a friend who will be greatly missed. The funeral was held Wednesday, there being a short service at the home at one o'clock, conducted by the Rev. H. Messner. Services were then held at the Evangelical church, where Rev. Messner was assisted in the services by Rev. W. H. Locke and the Rev. H. H. Thorn of Barrington, and two vocal solos at the church by Mrs. W. C. Brill. The casket bearers were E. E. Rich, H. S. DeWitt, E. A. Doty, W. C. Widmayer, L. D. Morgan and M. J. Getzelman. Burial was in the Hampshire Center Cemetery. The services were largely attended. The W. R. C. and the W. M. S., of which the deceased has been a member attended the services in body. Among those from out of town in attendance at the funeral were; Mr. and Mrs. H. G. Aurand and sons Raymond and Grant, of Barrington; Mr. and Mrs. W. R. Aurand and son George; Mr. and Mrs. Dan Warren, Mrs. C. Bauman, Mrs. Ida Britton, of Elgin. and Mr. and Mrs. Ed Kadau of Huntly.
