Clearfield Enterprise
Clearfield, Iowa
September 16, 1915

OBITUARY ~ ELIZABETH WALLACE COCHRAN

Mrs. Elizabeth Wallace Cochran, daughter of John and Elizabeth Giltner Wallace, was born August 7, 1829, near Madison, Indiana, and died in Clearfield, Iowa, September 12, 1915, aged 86 years and one month.

She was married in 1852 to Wm. Cochran, who died here in the spring of 1905.

About 1857 she removed from Indiana to Washington Co., Iowa, and 22 years later came to Taylor Co., where the remainder of her useful life was spent, dying at the home of her only child, A. W. Cochran, surrounded with every provision which care and love could provide.

Mrs. Cochran leaves to mourn her loss, of her blood kindred, two brothers, one son, five grand-children, and six great grand children.

Mrs. Cochran became a follower of the meek and lowly Jesus quite early in life, uniting with the Baptist church, and continued as a worthy member of it all her days. Her devotion to the house of God and love for her Savior are a precious legacy of memory to her family and friends. One influence of her life still flows on in this community, so this may be re-iterated of her which was written of Abel, "She being dead yet speaketh," or that other saying, "Blessed and who die in the Lord that they may rest from their labors, and their works do follow them.
