OBITUARY - Mrs. ANNA FARIS.

Abby Anna SEEVER, daughter of Daniel and Mary Catherine SEEVERS, was born March 4, 1862, near Linden, Indiana, and passed away [on November 26, 1932] at the home of her niece, Mrs. Maude WILLEY, in Mount Ayr, Iowa, aged 70 years, eight months and 22 days.

When a young woman she moved with her mother and family to Mount Ayr, Iowa. On December 25, 1883, she was united in marriage to James C. FARIS. To this union were born three sons, William Timby, J. Earl and James Carl, all whom preceded her in death. Her husband died February 6, 1916.

She was a member of the Methodist Episcopal church, the Missionary society and other organizations of the church. She was also a member of the Woman's Relief Corps and the Rebecca Lodge.

She lived in Mount Ayr and vicinity almost fity-one years. For the past year and a half, she has made her home with her niece, Mrs. Maude WILLEY. She has been in failing health for a number of years, and had been confined to the house almost constantly for the past year.

She leaves to mourn her death one brother, J. H. SEEVERS of Mount Ayr, a half brother, F. A. HARRIS of Des Moines, Iowa, a stepdaughter, Mrs. Luella WILSON of Mount Ayr, Iowa, a daughter-in-law, Mrs. May FARIS of Mount Ayr and seven grandchildren. She also leaves a host of other relatives and friends.

She will be sadly missed, because "Aunt Anna," as she was known to everyone, was very cheerful even through her last days of illness.

In Memoriam.
"We miss thee from our home, dear,
We miss thee from thy place;
A shadow o'er our life is cast,
We miss the sunshine of thy face,
We miss thy kind and willing hand,
Thy fond and earnest care.
Our home is dark without thee,
We miss thee everywhere."

Funeral services for Mrs. FARIS were held Monday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock at the Rhoades Funeral Home and were largely attended. The services were conducted by Rev. E. S. MENOHER, pastor of the Methodist Espicopal church, and the body was laid to rest in Rose Hill cemetery.
