Mount Ayr Record-News, 1927

OBITUARY - MRS. SARAH J. GERMAN.

German gravestone.jpg Sarah J. DILLION was born in Knox county, Pennsylvania, November 25, 1842, and departed this life July 14, 1927. She moved from Pennsylvania to Ohio when quite young, then later to Illinois where she grew to womanhood and was united in marriage to George W. GERMAN in the year 1862.

To this union were born six children, five boys and one girl. The husband and two sons, Thomas and Elmer preceded her in death. Those who survive her are Marion, of Benton, Iowa, Mrs. J. T. SHEIL, Frank and Samuel, of Mount Ayr.

She united with the M.E. church of Caledonia about the year 1887. She remained faithful to this faith and was known among her neighbors for her many acts of kindness. She was one of the aged widows who endured the hardships of the civil war.

At the time of her husband's death she resided on the homestead in Lotts Creek township where she continued to live until about two years ago when, on account of failing health, she came to live with her daughter, Mrs. SHEIL, who cared for her during her long illness.

Funeral services were conducted at the M.E. church by Rev. J. KIRKENDALL Sunday afternoon. Interment was made in Rose Hill cemetery [Mount Ayr].

Card of Thanks.

We wish to express our heart-felt thanks for the kind acts and words of sympathy offered during the long illness of our dear mother; also for the beautiful floral offerings.
THE CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN.
