The Mount Ayr Record-News, 1926

OBITUARY - MRS. T. W. DARBYSHIRE

Sadie M. ECKERMAN was born on March 14, 1868, in Washington county near Washington, Iowa, and departed this life on March 13, 1926, at Creston, Iowa, aged 57 years, 11 months and 29 days, after a brief illness which baffled the physicians.

Her early girlhood days were spent near Washington and she attended the high school of that place.

From the very earliest years of her life she was good. At the age of 17 years she confessed her faith in Christ and became a member of the Christian church at Pleasant Hill near Washington, Iowa. In the spring of 1886 she came with her parents to Ringgold county to live and placed her church membership in the Tingley Christian church of which church she remained an active and faithful member until her death.

On the 29th day of February, 1888, she was united in marriage to Thomas W. DARBYSHIRE, of Washington, Iowa, and together they established a most beautiful home on a farm north of Tingley, Iowa, which farm has been their home these 38 years. Into this home were born to them four sons - Ray, Glen, Robert and Wayne. Robert preceded his mother in death on November 13, 1919. Mother DARBYSHIRE lives no longer on earth in the body, but in the lives of her husband and sons.

No sons were ever blessed with a more loving mother and in the death of Mother DARBYSHIRE one of the children of God has returned to her home, and her Heavenly Father. There are left to sorrow, the husband and father, three sons, Ray of Donalsonville, Ga.; Glen of Moultrie, Ga., and Wayne at home; also three grandchildren, Dale and Lois DARBYSHIRE of Donalsonville, Georgia, and Nadine DARBYSHIRE of Moultrie, Ga., and an aged mother, one sister and one brother, all of Tingley. A host of other relatives and friends will never forget her wonderful life.

"Mother, thou art safe in the rest of love
At last with God in the home above;
And in my heart thou art enshrined
Oh, mother, dear, sweet mother of mine."

Funeral services were held on Sunday afternoon at the Christian church, conducted by her former pastor, Rev. C. SHAW, of Lenox, Iowa, and the body laid to rest in Tingley cemetery by the side of her son, Robert, to await the resurrection morn.

NOTE: Sadie M. (ECKERMAN) DARBYSHIRE was the daughter of Mary (DUDLEY) ECKERMAN (1846-1928) and Isaac ECKERMAN (1848-1906); both Mary and Isaac interred at Tingley Cemetery. Thomas W. DARBYSHIRE, husband of Sadie M. (ECKERMAN), was born in 1857 and died in 1949 with interment at Tingley Cemetery. Robert D. DARBYSHIRE, son of Sadie M. (ECKERMAN) and Thomas W., was born September 2, 1895, and died November 13, 1919, with interment at Tingley Cemetery.
