Mrs. Barbara Gerber

Mrs. Barbara Gerber, for many years a highly esteemed resident of this city and community, passed away at her home on East Elm Street last Saturday evening at the age of 77 years, 8 months and 21 days.
Barbara Roth, daughter of Andrew and Anna Roth was born at Washington, May 2, 1847. She grew to young womanhood there, later moving to Morton, where on March 3, 1872, she was united in marriage to Christian Gerber. Mr. and Mrs. Gerber resided at Morton for two years, than moved to a farm north of Cropsey, where Mrs. Gerber resided until six years ago, when Mrs. Gerber and daughters moved to this city. It was while residing on the farm near Cropsey that Mr. Gerber passed away, his death occurring fifteen years ago.
Surviving Mrs. Gerber are three daughters and one son - Misses Anna and Lydia, at home; Mrs. Peter Schaffer, residing southeast of Fairbury; and Chris Gerber, of Cropsey. There also survive fourteen grandchildren and the following brothers and sisters: Sam, John and Miss Katie Roth, all of Fairbury.
The funeral services were held on Tuesday from the South Christian Apostolic Church, the many present telling better than words of the high regard in which the deceased was held. Many were present from a distance. The services were in charge of Rev. Mangold, of Roanoke, and interment was in the South Cemetery.
