She was united in marriage to Ambrose Bennet October 18, 1893, at Tipton, Ind. To this union five children were born, three of whom survive her, Paul and Marie, at home, and Mrs. Emery Haskell, of Shelby.
Mrs. Bennet was a true and faithful member and worker of the St. Edward's church at Lowell until three years ago, when her health began to fail her. She has been a very patient sufferer during her illness, and not being able to attend church very often, but was always faithful and true to her God and religion. She has been a true wife and a kind and loving mother. To know her was to love her, and with her kind and patient ways she made friends wherever she went. All that medical aid and a kind, loving husband and friends could do was done for her, but of no avail. The death angel called her and she was ready and waiting to go, after her long, suffering here on earth.
She leaves to mourn her loss, a loving husband; three children, Paul, Marie and Mrs. Ethel Haskell; two grandchildren, Mildred and Helen; three sisters, Mrs. Herbert Whaling and Mrs. Katherine Prahler, of Indianapolis; Mrs. Joe Knaube, of North Vernon, Ind.; three brothers, Edward, James and John, of North Vernon, Ind.; and a large circle of other relatives and friends.
Undertaker John Castle prepared the body for burial and it was shipped to North Vernon, her old home, for burial.
The services were held in the St. Ann's church, and a very true and impressive sermon was preached to a large circle of old friends and relatives.
The departed one was laid to rest in the St. Ann's cemetery near her two babes.
