Mrs. L. A. Baldwin

Janet Peach Baldwin was born in the Town of Porter, Wisconsin, July 10th, 1869, passing away in the hospital at Rochester, Minnesota; where she had underwent a serious operation just a week previously, April 19, 1921. Though as we have said the operation was a serious one, she rallied afterward and strong hopes were held for her recovery; but the Great Master willed otherwise, suffering a set-back the night of the 18th, she went to be with Him at two o'clock, Tuesday.

Reared in the community where she first saw the light, she came to young womanhood, teaching in the rural schools and in the city of Evansville, with marked success. She will be long remembered by those over whom she ruled with love.

She was married July 10, 1899 to Mr. L. A. Baldwin of this city, becoming his devoted wife and life companion. Beside the husband, a mother, Mrs. Ben Peach of N. Second Street and two sisters, Miss Nellie M., who lives with her mother, and Mrs. B. W. Town of Porter, there are hosts of relatives and close friends who mourn her untimely departure. "She was a friend to all who knew her," as one expressed it this morning, a better and more worthy tribute it is impossible to pay. A faithful worker in the Congregational Church, she will be missed in those circles that knew her so well.

Only last year Mr. and Mrs. Baldwin finished their beautiful little home on First Street, perfect in arrangement and appointment, thinking of years of comfort here; but the Master of Life was even then completing "the house not made with hands," a better and more permanent residence. It is going to be lonesome here without her, but Heaven will be richer.

The funeral services will be held Friday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock from the Congregational Church, the pastor, officiating.
