Mrs. Susan J. Parrett Answers Final Summons
Death Came Last Saturday Afternoon About 4:00 O'clock
After a Short Illness of Measles and Pneumonia
St. Joseph Record February 25, 1921 page 1

Death has again invaded our city and claimed Mrs. Susan J. Parrett, probably one of the most beloved ladies in this community. Her death comes as a great shock to all, as she had been sick only a few days and many did not know of her illness. The cause of her death was measles and pneumonia. She had been very sick only a few days but it was believed that she was much improved until Saturday when she took a turn for the worst and at about 4 o'clock passed to the home of her Savior.
Mrs. Parrett had lived here a good many years and was beloved for her sweet disposition, kindly ways, and gentle ministrations to those who were needy and in distress.
The sympathy of the entire community goes out to the bereaved at this time.

Obituary

Susan J. Peters, the daughter of Robert and Mary E. Peters, was born in St. Joseph Township on July 18, 1860.
She was the second daughter in a family of eleven, six of whom with the father and mother have preceded her.
She was united in marriage to J. Wallace Parrett, December 31, 1884. To this union were born two daughters, Florence and Ruth, the former is the wife of C. P. Mills, and resides on the home farm southeast of St. Joseph. Miss Ruth is still at home.
The husband and father departed this life in November 1917.
Mrs. Parrett united with the Church of Christ at an early age, and has lived a consistent life.
She was a most loving wife and mother, ever ready to sacrifice for her family. Her life was always one of service for others, and of helpfulness in time of sickness or sorrow. At times, when the weather was severe she would prove her love of children by calling some of the school children in to take dinner with her, rather than see them go home through the inclement weather.
She leaves to hold her in precious memory: two daughters, Mrs. C. P. Mills and Miss Ruth, son-in-law, C. P. Mills, one grandson, Wallace Parrett Mills; two brothers, Wm. Peters of Linden, Indiana; John Peters, of St. Joseph; two sisters, Mrs. Sarah Peters, of Oakwood; Mrs. May Bowers, of Frankfort, Indiana. Also many nieces and nephews, and many other relatives and friends beyond number.
Words are inadequate to tell of the goodness and beautiful qualities of this well beloved woman.
Her congenial spirit and kindly disposition, won for her many friends who will sorrow, because of her going away. We shall miss her but we shall see her again.

The Funeral
The funeral services were conducted at the home on Monday afternoon at 1:30 o'clock by the pastor of the Church of Christ, Rev. H. C. Bream. There was a large crowd of sorrowing relatives and friends present to pay their last tribute of love to this splendid woman. Mrs. H. C. Bream sang two solos, the first being by request, "He Is So Precious to Me," was a favorite song of Mrs. Parrett's. She also sang, "My Jesus, As Thou Wilt."
The pall bearers were: Foster McCarty, Lorin Clark, E. L. Martin, Chas. Parker, R. O. Strong and C. C. Fenwick.
Interment was made in the Patterson cemetery.
Relatives attending the funeral from a distance were: F. C. Bowers and wife, Frankfort, Indiana; Roy F. Shobe, Chicago; W. A. Peters, Linden, Indiana; Mrs. Sarah Peters, Mrs. Myrtle Sailor, Mrs. Ada Fagaly and Mrs. Fae Trimble, of Oakwood.
