Iowa Plain Dealer May 24, 1898, LP, C6
Abbie C. Young was born in Franklin county, New York, May 4, 1842, and departed this life Saturday, May 21, 1898, aged 56 years and 17 days.
In 1856, with her parents, she moved to Clayton county, Iowa, where, in 1858, she was united in marriage to Orlando Woodworth, and to them two children were born, one dying in infancy; the other son, Adelbert Woodworth, now residing at North McGregor, Iowa. During this marriage, she resided some time at Ossian and Castalia, in Winneshiek county. On the 29th day of April, 1864, her husband died and on July 31, 1865 she was united in marriage to James M. Walker, in Clayton county. In 1870 they moved to Cresco, remaining five years, and then removing to a farm near Lourdes, this county, remaining there till 1880, when they returned to Clayton county and in 1893, returned to Cresco, where they have since resided. Seven children were the fruits of this union, five of them still living, Mrs. C. I. Hastings, of Milwaukee, Wis., Mrs. W. E. Lord, of North Prairie, Wis., Mrs. A. J. Jennings, of Lime Springs, Mrs. Arthur Patterson, of Cresco, and a young son, Lee. These with the aged husband and father, are left to mourn the death of a loving and faithful wife and mother.
In early life before coming to Iowa, she united with the Methodist church, though in later years showed a preference for the Baptist faith, and at all times through life by her acts, deeds and words showed herself truly possessed of all the attributes and qualities that mark the abiding place of a christian spirit and character.
She has been in failing health for several years, and about one week before her death she was taken severely ill, passing away surrounded by all her immediate family with the exception of two brothers, A. S. Young, of Milbank, S. D., and W. S. Young, of Havana, N. D., who both arrived in time to attend the funeral as did all the sons-in-law. A nephew and two nieces, Herbert, Edna and Lillie Raymond, the two latter of Mason City, also were present at the death and funeral.
The funeral occured{sic} Monday afternoon from the residence, the Rev. W. K. Lane officiating. The remains were taken on the afternoon train to Monona, Iowa, where she will be interred by the side of her mother in Pleasant Ridge cemetery.
A faithful wife, a loving and careful mother, and a true friend has passed from the sorrows and troubles of this life to the joys of the Paradise beyond.
J. M. Walker and family desire to return thanks to those who assisted and sympathised with then{sic} in the hour of sickness and sorrow in their recent bereavement.
