Mrs. William Schneck Answers Death’s Call
Margaret Lockie was born in Pomeroy July 28, 1875, and died on Sunday evening, March 2, 1930 in her fifty-fifth year. She was married to William M. Schneck on Thanksgiving Day, 1891. Two children were born to them, Gladys, now Mrs. Charles Taylor of Sioux City, and Perle, of Sioux Rapids. Mrs. Schneck was associated with her husband in the business of conducting a general store in Pomeroy for ten years. She was thus brought into contact with the people of Pomeroy and surrounding districts and was favorably known. Some years ago she became seriously ill and since then led the life of an invalid. Although unable to take her place in the world as heretofore, she kept up her interests in things and bore up cheerfully under spells of weakness and failing strength. She was able to spend, latterly, much of the time in the homes of her children with periods of residence at the home in Pomeroy. In the days of her strength she was interested in the work and worship of the local Presbyterian church of which she and her husband were members. She was an active member also of the Ladies Aid society and the Missionary society of the church. For a term she served as Worthy Matron of the Pomeroy O.E.S., Ruby Chapter, and was a member of the Royal Neighbors. She was preceded in death by her husband, who passed away on November 11, 1926. Mrs. Schneck went to California last November, hoping that the climate there might aid her seemingly returning health. This it failed to do and last Friday in charge of a nurse she was brought back to Iowa in a very weak condition, and passed to her rest in the home of her daughter, entering the silent land of God’s eternal peace. Besides her two children she leaves to mourn her early death, one grandchild, Robert Schneck; two sisters, Mrs. Florence Pearce of Des Moines, and Mrs. Mabel Henderson of Caledonia, Illinois; three brothers, John Lockie, Pomeroy, Howard Lockie of Los Angeles, California, and Charles Lockie of Sioux City, and many friends. Funeral services were held at the home Wednesday afternoon, March 5, and were conducted by Rev. W. W. Maxwell, who spoke on “The Continuity of Life.” His sermon was based on John 14 (1-2). A quartette composed of Messrs. Ladd and Gaedke and Mesdames Colburn and Button sang two songs, “Beautiful Isle of Somewhere” and “Nearer My God to Thee.” Interment was made in the local cemetery. Members of the O.E.S. Ruby Chapter attended in a body at the home and also at the interment as a token of respect.
