The deceased was a Christian woman having been confirmed and

united with the Lutheran church in the old country at the age of

14 years, since which time she has been true to the faith . Of

recent years her health has been such that she has not been able

to take an active part in Christian work.



"We will weep for the day that come no more;

For the sunbeams gone from from the hearth and door;

For a missing step, for a nameless grace;

For a mother's form and a mother's face;

But not for the soul whose crown is won;

Whose infinite joy has only began;

Not for the spirit enrolled in light;

Crowned where angels are tonight."
