Egli. - Emma Grim Egli was born near Mackinaw, Ill., April 2, 1877; died at the Lutheran hospital at Fort Dodge, Iowa, on the evening of June 26, 1934; aged 57 y. 2 m. 24 d. She was married to Christian B. Egli on Dec. 27, 1895 at Hopedale, Ill.; 13 children were born into this home, 9 sons and 4 daughters. One daughter (Rosette) and 2 sons (John and Amon) preceded their mother in death. She is survived by her husband and the following children: Joe, Lou, Emery, of Manson, Mrs. Maude Swartzendruber of La Junta, Colo., Sam, Lawrence, Elsie, Jesse, Ida, and Stanley at home, besides 15 grandchildren, 2 half brothers and 2 half sisters. In the spring of 1912 the family moved from Illinois to Blanden Farms near Manson where they have since resided. Her illness began on March 22 when she underwent an operation for a ruptured appendix. At that time it seemed as though she might not recover, but after three weeks she returned to her home, apparently on the road to recovery. She was able to be up and about and attended church services. About three weeks ago she again became bedfast and after a thorough physical examination a second operation was deemed necessary. On June 15 she entered the hospital for treatment and surgery. She seemed to be recovering slowly when she suddenly turned worse and passed peacefully away. She united with the Mennonite Church at the age of 16 years, of which she was a member until the end. She was interested in the work of the Church, a regular attendant at its services when possible. She was a devoted wife and mother, and loved by all who knew her; for her interests were not confined to her own family, but she also showed every kindness and thoughtfulness to those about her who chanced to be in need. In the early part of her illness she wished very much to recover, but when her strength failed she was fully resigned to God's will and expressed a desire to enter the heavenly rest.
