Obituary of Sarepta C. Trimble

We are called again to weep with those that weep and mourn, for the death angel has come and taken from our midst Sarepta C. Trimble, wife of Dr. Darius Trimble and daughter of John and Sarah Newhouse of Delaware Co, Ind., to whom she was born May 13, 1850.

On the 12th day of July, 1871, she was united in marriage to Darius Trimble. God blessed this union with 8 children, 7 daughters and one son. One daughter died in infancy, the son Herman, lived to be four years old and God took him. The husband and six daughters, Alta Stephens and Bertie Holmes of Marion, Ind., Lizzie Quick and Vica Pile of Sims, Ind., and Hattie Foltz and Lottie the youngest daughter of Herbet are left to mourn the departure of wife and mother.

Our departed sister was one of a family of eleven children. All but one, Mary Snell of Junction City, Kansas, have left the shores of time and are with the great family of spirits on the other side.

The greater portion of the life of the deceased was spent in Delaware county, but the last 8 years of her life was spent in Herbet, where she has won to herself many friends, for her life and character was admired by all who knew her.

She has been in poor health for years and many times was thought to be near the end, but the Father spared her to her family and she has been a great blessing to them as an advisor, both by precept and example. She was a woman of pious convictions as proven by her life. At the age of 18 she identified herself with the German Baptist church and remained a member of that church until she had taken up her residence in Herbet, and when it was definitely settled with her and her husband that this was to be their home she thought it best to identify herself with the Methodist Protestant church of this place under the pastorate of J. O. Ledbetter, March 16, 1905 and has been a faithful Christian, and true to her covenant with the church often testifying of her faith in Christ and her hope of heaven. Her last sickness was intensely painful but she bore it with the greatest patience and often praying for the blessings of God to rest on her husband and the children as they so attentively waited upon her. Her last days on earth were days of great joy, she often shouting praises to her Redeemer.

In the quiet of the night of Jan. 25, 1908, her spirt left the body and joined the innumerable white robed company which John the revelator saw, who were washed in the blood of the Lamb.

Gone shall we say of mother dear. Now her voice is hushed and still. No, not gone, for she in our memory is over with us here. To her home in heaven our mother’s gone, And praising God around His throne. In patience we’ll wait till the word is given, Then we’ll join our mother high up to heaven.

The funeral service was conducted at Herbet M.P. chruch by the pastor J.O. Ledbetter and the interment was at the I.O.O.F. cemetery at Marion.
