In her death her husband has lost a true and loving wife, the mother a dutiful daughter, the children a kind and loving mother and the community one who was ever ready to oblige and to assist to the utmost of her ability.
September 10, 1885, she was united in marriage to William H. Newkirk. To this union six children were born - five girls and one son, who together with father, survive their mother. Truly a good woman has fallen; one who will not only be sadly missed by her immediate family, but by a very large circle of friends and neighbors. She leaves her husband, six children, an aged mother, two brothers, Harry, of Whiting, Indiana, and Frank E., of Orchard Grove, who have the sincere sympathy of the entire community.
Her funeral occurred from the Orchard Grove school house at 1 o'clock p.m., Tuesday. Rev. D.D. Hoagland preached the funeral discourse and the Lowell M.E. church choir furnished appropriate music. Undertaker John Castle had charge of the burial service. The following acted as pall bearers:
George Cottrill, Lewis McNay, E.T. Hill, Charlie Hill, Alonzo Dickinson and Frank Potter. Interment in Orchard Grove cemetery.
The infant babe left after the death of its mother, Mrs. Wm. H. Newkirk, died last Thursday and was buried in the Orchard Grove cemetery in the arms of its mother.
