OBITUARY - MRS. LEROY FULLER

Mrs. Leroy FULLER passed away at her home in Mt. Ayr, on Sunday, October 29, 1905, after a long and lingering sickness. For months she had been patiently waiting for her change to come and no doubt but that she welcomed the death messenger. She was ready and ripe for the transition to the city of God. Mrs. FULLER's maiden name was Elizabeth Alice MATHANY. She was born [October 28, 1835] in Liberty Twp., Trumbull county, Ohio, and reached the good old age of seventy years and one day. She had passed the allotted "three score years and ten" and used one day of "borrowed time."

Mrs. FULLER was a remarkable woman. When she was but thirteen years of age her mother died leaving in the home her father and five brothers. With the spirit of a true heroine, she at once took charge of the home and became a mother to her brothers until they were grown to manhood. She was united in marriage to Leroy FULLER on April 15, 1858, and lived at Bristol, Ohio until the year 1866, when she moved to Warren, Ohio, and lived at that place until 1884, when they moved to their Mount Ayr home. She was an invalid for twelve years and suffered greatly from some form of rheumatism. In her last years she was "shut in" by afflictions.

Survived by five sons: Francis "Frank" FULLER, Berton LeRoy FULLER, Perry Ernest FULLER, Ira Melville FULLER, and Homer Austin FULLER. Interment was at Rose Hill Cemetery, Mount Ayr, Ringgold County, Iowa.
