Mrs. Benjamin (Ann Farmer) Bazeley (1825-1895)

Paullina Times, 25 Jul 1895, p 3

Ann Farmer Bazeley was born at the village of Chippin-Norton Oxfordshire, England, July 14th, 1825, and died in Paullina, Iowa, July 19th, 1895, aged 70 years and 5 days. October 20, 1846, she was married to Benjamin Bazeley who passed over the River of Death seven years ago.

In the spring of 1859 [might be 1852] they came to this country, settling first in Masonville, Wisconsin, where she united with the M. E. church of which she has ever since been an earnest member.

The family moved to Iowa thirty years ago, living in Black Hawk county about thirteen years, then on their farm east of Paullina up to the time of Mr. Bazeley's death, since which time Sister Bazeley has made her home with her daughter, Mrs. T. R. Stewart.

Sister Bazeley was left an orphan before she was two years old when she was taken into the home of an uncle by whom she was carefully instructed in religious things and thus was actuated all through life to be a follower of Christ, often saying she could not remember a time when she was not trying to live a christian life.

She was the mother of three children, one of whom, Mrs. Mary Frazier, died over five years ago. The others, Mrs. A. A. Hibbard and Mrs. Stewart, are residents of this county.

She also leaves a brother, about five years her senior, who lives in Chicago. Besides these might be enumerated a large circle of friends and other relatives.

Our sister sank to rest peacefully, her faith in Christ's power to save firm to the last.

Her's was indeed useful though a humble life. Her work as wife and mother has been well done and that One whose commendation is worth more than all the world has said "It is enough; enter thou into the joys of thy Lord."

Funeral services conducted by her pastor were held in the M. E. church last Sunday and all that was mortal laid to rest in Union Cemetery.
