Mrs. Elizabeth Hall Sackett Overman died at her home in south Brooklyn at 8:10 p.m., January 14, 1909, aged 79 years, 6 months and 30 days. Deceased was born in Ohio, June 15, 1829. While a child with her parents left her native state and located in Berrien County, Michigan, where in the year *1850 she was married to Edwin Sackett who departed this life twelve years ago and to this union there were born 12 children, 8 of whom survive to mourn the loss of a most devoted mother. In the year 1855, they moved to Poweshiek County, Iowa where they resided until her death.

Early in life she gave her heart to God and united with the Methodist Church. By her pure unselfish character, her kindness and charity towards all, her memory will forever bear in the hearts of her children, her friends and neighbors. She was a great sufferer for years with lung trouble but God in is wisdom spared her to her family until they have grown to men and women. She lived for those she loved, always thinking and planning for their comforts and happiness. In the year 1903 on September 10, she united in marriage with J.B. Overman with whom she lived with until death separated them. It is hard to give mother up but the Heavenly Father said, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth, they shall rest from their labors and their work do follow them.

The funeral services were held at the M.E. Church at 2:00 Saturday afternoon conducted by Rev. W.S. Kight and Rev. W.L. Clapp after which the remains, followed by a large concourse of friends and neighbors, were tenderly laid to rest in the IOOF Cemetery.
