Elkader Register, Thur., 22 Jan. 1920. Strawberry Point column.

The death of Mrs. H. L. Wing, formerly Miss Emma Easton daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. Easton, aged 65 years passed away at the home of her son Lee. After a year of imperfect health with cancer of the stomach and for the past eleven weeks of serious affliction and suffering but always so patient and kind with never a murmur on her lips and always so grateful for favors shown her for loving hands administered to every want she quietly and peacefully passed to her reward last Saturday at 12:30 o'clock. The master has come and called her from loving service and patient suffering to the joys of an endless life. She was a kind hearted woman and beloved by all who knew her. A lover of her home shedding the sacred influence of a devoted wife and mother everywhere. But her days were numbered her work was done. The battle of life has been fought heroicly and has reached devine victory. Well done thou good and faithful servant. Thou has been faithful over a few things I will make thee ruler over many things enter thou into the joys of thy soul. She rests from her labor and her works do follow her. Mrs. Wing came of a high minded ambitions and sturdy family whose industry in the face of the pioneers handicaps was attended by success and distinction. She leaves to her father in June 1911. She leaves to mourn her loss a sorrowing husband, one daughter, Mrs. May Epper and one son Lee Wing both of this place and four grandchildren besides three sisters and two brothers; Mrs. Susan Church, of Rockford, Iowa, Mrs. Euphema Shepard, of Hurdsfield, N.D.; Mrs. Rebecca Dorman, of Manchester; L. S. Easton, of this place and Eugene Easton of Crab Tree, Oregon, also other relatives and friends. The funeral services were held at the M.E. church Tuesday afternoon conducted by the pastor Rev. Smith. The mortal remains were laid to rest in the beautiful cemetery awaiting resurrection morn.
