Death of Mrs. Hoesley.
It was with sorrow and dismay that our entire community heard of the sudden and unexpected death of Mrs. Peter Hoesley, of near this city, on last Friday afternoon, July 27. Her health had not been the best for some years, but there was nothing to indicate that a sudden death might be expected. She was taken ill Friday afternoon with heart trouble, accompanied by cramps and convulsions. Dr. Williams was immediately sent for, but when he arrived she had passed away beyond the reach of all medical skill.
Caroline Rose (Stribe) Hoesley was born in Fulton, Illinois; January 27, 1862, and at the time of her death was thirty-one years and six months old. She was the fourth child of a family of nine, five of whom survive her. She came with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. F.A. Stribe, to this county in 1878, and was married to Mr. Peter Hoesley on February 3,1881, eight children being born to them, six of whom survive to bless the memory and mourn the loss of a devoted mother.
The death of Mrs. Hoesley will be sincerely mourned by innumerable friends in all parts of Carroll County.
During her long residence here, she has won many friends by her cheerful manner and pleasant ways. She was not noted for prominence in society or in public, her greatest accomplishments being the affections that were entwined around her family and friends. Here, among her own family she will be most sadly missed, and the grief of her friends at the untimely death, will be forgotten in their efforts. to care for and protect the motherless children, who will never again know a mother's sweet companionship and tender love. Mrs. Hoesley was a devout Christian, having united with the Presbyterian Church when she was fifteen years old. Let us rest in the belief that after a life well spent, with every duty faithfully performed, the soul of the stricken mother has at last found eternal rest amid the scenes of its creation, in the presence of God.
The funeral took place Sunday afternoon, first at the home of the deceased, five miles north of town, and afterwards at the Presbyterian Church in this city, Rev. W.V. Lippe conducting both services. The funeral was under the auspices of the German I.O.O.F. and the order of the Daughters of Rebecca, the members of which societies turned out in a body and escorted the remains to the cemetery, where they were laid away in their final resting place.
