She united with the Methodist Episcopal church in Crown Point in 1897 and has continued a devoted member of the same and has been a regular attendant when her health would permit. She leaves to mourn her passing, a devoted husband, two daughters, four grand-children, two sisters, five brothers, and a host of relatives and friends. Her father, mother and two brothers preceded her to the great beyond. Those of her parents' family present at the funeral were Nelson Washburn and nephew, of Ohio; Darwin Washburn and wife and Mrs. Ardella Fancher, of Crown Point.
Her devotion to her family was manifest to the last.
Death came without a struggle, and an expression of peace and rest remained upon her face. She has gone out into the freedom of the spirit of God. -- Lake County Star.
* NOTE -- In another article, the married last name of her daughter Edna appears as "Simmons" rather than "Simons."
