OBITUARY ~ JENNIE (HUNTER) ECKELS

Jennie Hunter, daughter of David and Lissey Hunter, was born July 25, 1862 in Des Moines county, Iowa and died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Mel Tully, in Lenox, Iowa on Friday, January 7, 1944 at the age of 81 years, five months and 15 days.

She spent most of her early life in Ringgold and Adams counties. At the age of 20 she was united with the Baptist church of Prescott, Ia. In 1909 she became a member of the Presbyterian Church United in Lenox.

On May 6, 1880, she was united in marriage to George W. Eckels at Corning, Iowa. To this union four children were born, a son, Clarence and three daughters, Bertha Mae, Carrie Malissa and Emma Kathryn, the latter who died in infancy. Her husband died December 21, 1915. Since that time she has made her home with her two daughters, Mrs. Mel Tully and Mrs. Sam Stuwe.

She is survived by her two daughters and one son, Clarence; two brothers, Bert Hunter of Winfield, Ia., and Will Hunter of Galesburg; five grandchildren and seven great grandchildren, together with several nephews and nieces.

Mrs. Eckels found great comfort in Tennyson's "Crossing the Bar" [poem followed].

Funeral services were from the Presbyterian Church United on Sunday, January 9 at two o'clock p.m. with the Rev. Earl Moneymaker officiating. Burial was in the Lenox cemetery.

Pallbearers were L. A. Whipp, Warren Eckels, John Brown, Abe Beck, Roy Noerrlinger, and Frank Boltinghouse. Musicians were Oliver Turner, Mrs. Roy Long, Mrs. Rollie Bender and Floyd Boltinghouse. Don Tyler was accompanist.
