P. Lillie, Chicago; Mrs. Seburn L Neal, Frisvco, Ill; Alfred Ward, Spring Garden; Mrs. Abe Dungy, Mrs. Ernest Lovan and Emery Ward of Benton.  There are also twenty-three grand children and a great host of near relatives and friends left to mourn her departure.

A loved one from us is gone,
A voice we loved is still,
A place is vacant in our home
Which never can be filled.
