Death Takes Mrs. Sarah Hendricks
Mrs. Sarah L. Hendricks, nonagenarian Civil War widow, died at 5:15 p.m. Sunday at the home of Alfred Behrens, 604 West Ninth street, after an extended illness due to advanced age.
Sarah L. Levee was born at West Point, Ia., Dec. 14, 1849 and married Wm. H. Hendricks also of West Point, Ia., Oct. 19, 1875. A daughter, Lizzie, was born of their marriage.
Mr. and Mrs. Hendricks and their small daughter came to Nebraska in 1882, locating on a farm 2 1/2 miles south of the Hamilton county bridge. She continued to make her home there until three years ago, when she moved to Grand Island.
Her daughter, Lizzie, died Apr. 2, 1901, leaving a small daughter, Florence Perkey, who grew to womanhood in the home of her grandparents and later married Alfred Behrens.
Mrs. Hendricks is survived by four great grandchildren, Mrs. Leo Cole and Bill and Fern Behrens of this city and Mrs. August Schwartz of Wood River; one great, great grandchild, David Lee Cole, and Alfred Behrens, husband of the deceased granddaughter, with whom she made her home. Her husband also preceded her in death.
Funeral services will be held at 2 o'clock Wednesday afternoon at the Geddes funeral home. Rev. Fredrick Leavitt, of Leigh, will officiate and burial will be in the Phillips cemetery. The family requests no flowers.
