Her home was the home of a number of old people, relatives of the family, until they passed on to glory. The funeral was held on Sunday afternoon from her late home to the Wideman Church for services and the adjoining cemetery for burial. Ministers serving were A. D. Grove and Oscar Burkholder. Text, Psalm 91: 14-16.
