OBITUARY - EDNA CALFEE

Edna CALFEE, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. S. W. [Silas W. and Alice E. (THOMPSON)] CALFEE was born March 2, 1883 and died at the home of her parents in east Mt. Ayr Friday morning January 1, 1897. She was nearly fourteen years of age, and an unusually bright and interesting child. She had been sick about two years of consumption, and last spring her life had been despaired of, but she had been much better during the summer and fall, and her friends had hoped for her complete recovery. She took a severe cold about two weeks ago, and her physical condition was such that she could not rally from the attack. She was uncomplaining and patient during her sickness, and bore her suffering with Christian fortitutde.

The funeral services were conducted Saturday afternoon at two o’clock at the residence by Rev. H. T. JACKSON, after which the remains were laid to rest in the Rose Hill cemetery. The funeral services were attended by many friends of the deceased.

The family has the sympathy of many friends in their bereavement.

Note: Edna was interred at Rose Hill Cemetery, Mount Ayr, Iowa.
