Died, Miss Edna Yeoman, at the home of her mother, April 21, 1891, of dropsy, aged 21 years, 9 months and 16 days. Edna was born and lived in Mahaska county, or in this neighborhood all her life, and always had a pleasing smile and good word for all her friends. She lived a Christian life having joined the United Brethren church some years ago. Through the long ten months of her illness she bore it with calmness and patience, and cherished fond hopes of recovery till the last; but she said she was ready to go and the future was bright. The funeral service was conducted by Rev. Byram, of Fremont, at the home, and interment in the Fremont cemetery. The bereaved have the sympathy of all their many friends.

The following versus were written on the death of Miss Edna Yeoman, who died Apr 21, 1891.

One chair is vacant in our home
Dear Edna no more is there
Oh, how we miss her smiling face
We miss her everywhere.

She suffered long here below
in this world of sin and pain
Although we miss her very much
Our loss is but her gain

She left us here to weep and mourn-
She has crossed to that heavenly shore,
Where sickness, sorrow, pain and death,
Are not and feared no more.

We mourn for our departed one
Why, we cannot tell;
Her absence darkens our old home,
She has gone to Heaven to dwell.


Shares headstone with Richard and Fanny
