Church in Belle City and about 10 years ago she, with her family, transferred her membership to the M. E. Church here, where she lived a faithful member till the end.  She had been in failing health for about two years.  A short time ago she went to Mt. Vernon to consult a specialist, and it was thought she was getting along nicely, till last Wednesday morning, she passed away, at her daughter's home in Mt.

C. W. Ivie at the family residence.  Interment in I.O.O.F cemetery.
