Obituary THE SHELL ROCK NEWS, Shell Rock, Butler County, Iowa
Thursday, February 22, 1920

Was mother of the late Mrs. Jim Carter, of Shell Rock
and was well known here.
Shortly before 10 O'clock last Monday morning, the life of Mrs. H.W. Probert of Waterloo came to a close, at the ripe age of 81 years. Her passing came at the home of her daughter Mrs. C.B. Santee, with whom the deceased woman had lived for several years. The cause of her death was old age.
Mrs. Probert was the mother of Mrs. Jim Carter of Shell Rock and was well and favorably known in this community for many years. She was a woman of home instincts and drew herself to the friendship of all who came to know her. She was twice married, her first husband losing his life in the Civil War. She afterward married Mr. Probert and he passed away about 30 years ago. Three daughters, Mrs. C. B. Santee of Waterloo, Mrs. C. H. Leverich of Winslow, Mrs. A.R. Walker of Waterloo, and one son, M.G. Parks of New Hartford, survive.
Jim Carter accompanied the remains to Shell Rock yesterday and they were buried in Riverside Cemetery. Funeral services for the dead woman were conducted in Waterloo.
