Died.
It was a severe shock to all among whom she had gone these many years, when it was announced last Thursday that Mrs. George Biggar had passed from this life at the home of her daughter in Omaha. Intent upon her tender ministries to the sick and afflicted, she had gone about these duties iu
so unassuming and self-sacrificing a way; we had anticipated meeting herin social gatherings, in. church life, in the sick chamber, for so many years, that we could not credit the rumor that for her the activities of life were over. Miss Anna White WEB born in Huntington, Canada, in March, 1829, of Scottish parentage, at a time when pioneer life severely tested all the energies
and fully developed the dormant powers of the body and soul. Traces of the force and strength of such discipline were evident in her after life. In February, 1848, she was united in marriage to George Biggar. After twenty-three years of life in Canada they removed to Iowa and settled in
Corning on May 13, 1871, and established a home where Scotch industry and Scotch thrift united all in self-respecting tabor and sacrifices—a home from which passed two boys in their early manhood and the universally respected father ana head in November, 1881. The home life under her forceful supervision ended when the youngest child was married and took up her residence in Omaha. It was at this daughter's home in which she laid down the burdens of life, the cause being internal cancer. She united with the Presbyterian church in Canada in her sixteenth year and has been an upright
and consistent member of the First Presbyterian church of Corning since July, 1873. Her life' as a mother, a wife, a member of Christ's body, and a beloved citizen of OUT town, points with no. uncertain emphasis to the home that Jesus has prepared for those who love him, where there is no more parting, nor sorrow, nor years of separation The funeral services were conducted from her late home in this city Saturday morning at 10 o'clock by Rev.W. S. Barnes, of Council Bluffs, who was formerly her pastor,' assisted by Rev. M. V. Higbee, and interment was made in the Walnut Grove cemetery. Of her eight children, those who are living at present are: Mrs. Jennie B.Morgan, of Omaha, Mrs. F. C. Elwell of Minneapolis, Mrs. W. G. Shortliff of
Omaha, J. W. Biggar of Corning, Mrs D. R. Gilbert of Warren, Ohio, and Mrs.Fred E. Pearce of Omaha.
