She is survived by her husband, 4 sons, 1 daughter, 10 grandchildren, 4 sisters, 4 brothers, and many other relatives and friends. In her early youth she accepted Christ as her Savior, united with the A. M. Church, and remained faithful to the end. She had been in failing health for some time, but her death came as a shock to her family as she passed away in her sleep. Funeral services were held Jan. 24 at the home and at the Cedar Grove A. M. Church by Bros. John Gerber and Jacob Lichti.
      "No one heard the footsteps
      Of the angel drawing near
      Who took from earth to heaven
      The one we loved so dear."
