The Mount Ayr Record-News, 1930
DEATH of MRS. CHARLES CAIN
After a critical illness of more than a year's duration Mrs. Charles [Annie E. (MULL)] CAIN passed away Saturday night at the home in east
Mount Ayr. At the death of Mrs. CAIN the community mourns with the grief-stricken family. During the long months of illness,
during which relief was sought through the aid of specialists at the University hospital at Iowa City, she was courageous and
hopeful. After several months of illness in October of last year she went to the hospital at Iowa City where her condition
was found to be such that little hope was given for recovery, but all that was humanly possible was done and a few weeks ago
she returned to the hospital for further examination and treatment, but despite the efforts of skilled physicians and the
tender and loving care of husband and children and the best efforts of trained nurses, she gradually grew weaker until the
Funeral services were held Monday afternoon at 2:30 at the Church of Christ, being conducted by F. D. AUGSTINE of
Benton, assisted by T. S. RHOADES, and the burial was in Rose Hill cemetery [Mount Ayr, Iowa].
Annie E., daughter of Riley and Lyda MULL,
was born in Harrison county, Missouri, March 8, 1887. She died July 26, 1930, at the age of 43 years, four months and 18
days. In the year 1903 the family moved to Ringgold county, Iowa, locating near Mount Ayr, and on March 9, 1905, she was
united in marriage to Charles CAIN. Mr. and Mrs. CAIN established their home in Benton, where they resided for a number of
years before moving to Mount Ayr. Seven children were born to Mr. and Mrs. CAIN, all of whom with the husband and father
survive. The children are Stella (Mrs. Dean SHELDON) of Denver, Colo.; Miles of Denver, Colo.; Milo of El Monte, Calif.;
Wilbur, Aldeen, Doreen and Madonna at home.
Mrs. CAIN was a good wife and mother, devoting her time and energy to service
of those she loved, and constantly, until the death summons came, was planning for the comfort of her family. She was a
member of the Mount Ayr Church of Christ and her death marks the passing of a true christian mother.
Besides the husband
and children, she leaves to mourn four brothers and two sisters - Morrison, Walter, Benjamin and Charles MULL, living near
Mount Ayr; Mrs. Amanda JAMES, Columbus, Neb.; Mrs. Julia GLENN, Kingman, Kan., and her aged mother.CARD OF THANKS.
It is not possible to express in words the gratitude we feel to the good friends and neighbors who during the long months
of illness of our wife and mother were so generous and kind, but we assure you that we appreciate every kindly deed and
the sympathy so generously bestowed. - Charles CAIN and family.
