Her fidelity and sunny disposition has won for her many, many friends among young and old. She held the trust of all with whom she was associated in business and in all the relations of life.
Her interest in matters religious has been manifest from early life. She was an attendant of the M.E. Sunday school at Creston and later of the Christian Sunday school at Lowell. Though so young she had her favorite text and often repeated it, "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him might not perish, but have everlasting life."
Her going saddens the hearts of father , mother, three brothers, Horace, Ross and Chester, three sisters, Sheila, now Mrs. Sherard Henry, Blanche, now Mrs. Elmer Worley, and Jessie, and her very dear friend Glenn Steward, and many relatives and friends to whom she was very dear.
Her going has brought many tributes of sympathy from friends and neighbors, but the following from a dear friend, who knew her so well, is so fitting a close:
I cannot say, and I will not say
that she is dead -- she is just away.
With a cheery smile, and a wave of the hand,
she has wandered into an unknown land,
and left us dreaming how very fair
it needs must be, since she lingers there And you, O you, who, the wildest yearn
for the old time step and the glad return,
think of her faring on, as dear
in the love of There as the love of Here;
think of her still as the same, I say,
she is not dead, she is just away.
Among those from away who attended the funeral services were: E.P. Ross, Dr. and Mrs. L.F. Ross, Mr. and Mrs. K.W. Ross, Mr. and Mrs. Clifford Dewers of Aurora, Ind.; Mr. and Mrs. Fred Scheiscz and son, Mrs. William Wolters and Freida Ruble, of Shelbyville, Ind.; Mrs. J.S. Kennedy and Leslie Ross of Hammond, Mrs. William Kennedy, Lon Howard, Mr. and Mrs. Harry Steward and sons Glenn and Roy, Mr. and Mrs. John Hooley, Mrs. Violet Taylor and Phil Boller, of Chicago, and many from Crown Point and other places.
