DEATH CLAIMS GRANDMA WHELAN

Passes Away Thursday At Home Of Her Granddaughter.

In the passing of Grandma Whelan, although she had been absent from this community for several years, a sense of sadness comes to us all who knew her best. She was loved and revered by all her neighbors and friends for her true worth and the beautiful life she lived during her long residence in Bladen. Her Life was a glad service of love; love to her family, her neighbors and friends and to her God whom she honored first and last.

Obituary.

Margaret Favinger was born at Columbus Ann (sic), Ohio, on April 24, 1843, and passed to her eternal reward on May 15, 1930, at the age of 87 years and 22 days. At the age of eight years she went with her parents to Kendallville, Indiana, where the family was to make their new home. Here she lived until she reached young womanhood.

She was married to M.U. Whelan in 1861. Shortly after her marriage she and her husband went to Michigan. In 1863 they returned to Indiana. To this union was born six sons, the oldest being born in Michigan and the others in Indiana.

In 1877 the family moved to Nebraska and homesteaded on a farm between Bladen and Roseland. About thirteen years later they moved into Roseland. In 1899 they established their home in Bladen where she spent probably the happiest years of her life. She made a place for herself in the hearts of the people of Bladen that no other can fill.

In June of 1924, because of failing health she came to Roseland to make her home with her oldest son, Bert. Here she remained until in January. The last four weeks of her earthly life were spent with her granddaughter, Mrs. J.W. Nelson. These last four months were spent in comfort and the only sign of failing health was increasing feebleness. She retained a bright and clear mind until a stroke of paralysis overcame her on May 12. Death came quietly two days later.

Mr. Whelan preceded her in death 20 years ago. Her passing takes from this earth the last of a family of twelve. One son, Willard died in infancy.

She was a member of the Methodist Episcopal church (sic), which church she joined after a happy conversion in 1871. She has been a faithful Christian for 59 years. Her life has been a beautiful example of Christian trust and faithfulness to all who knew her.

She is survived by her five sons, Bert of Roseland, Otis of Scottsbluff, Henry of Bloomington, Frank of Bladen and Forrest of Morefield. She also leaves 18 grandchildren and 24 great grandchildren besides a host of friends.

Funeral services were held on Saturday afternoon, May 17, at the Bladen Methodist Episcopal church (sic). Rev. Otto A. Quaife of Roseland was in charge. Burial was made in the Plainview cemetery (sic) southeast of Bladen.

Home at last,
The long, long journey ended,
The trusting heart
Received to its reward.

A tribute here
We pledge to her devotion,
She loved her Lord;
Her life was glory crowned.

In that last morn
when life is one reunion,
In God's good will
We'll meet the joy blessed soul. ~~~ R.W.G.
