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.
