The Mount Ayr Record-News, 1927

OBITUARY - MRS. S. H. HEATON.

Catherine WEBSTER, youngest child of John and Elizabeth WEBSTER, was born in Greene county, Pennsylvania, December 26, 1848, and died at her home in Tingley, Iowa, February 28, 1927, aged 78 years, two months and two days.

At the age of 21 years she came with her parents to Iowa, coming to Keokuk by boat, then to Lucas county, where she resided until 1899.

She was united in marriage to Samuel HEATON April 8, 1869. To this union were born ten children, two sons dying in infancy. The living are: Mrs. Lizzie BISSELL of Dallas, Ore., Mrs. Margaret McGRATH of Afton, Iowa; Wm. HEATON of Santa Barbara, Calif.; Herman H. HEATON of Tingley, Iowa; Mrs. Maud REDFIELD of Boise, Idaho; Mrs. Belle LANDRETH of Tingley, Iowa; Mrs. Bessie LORIMER of Shaw, Ore.; Mrs. Edna RICHARDSON of Keosauqua, Iowa. She also leaves thirty-three grandchildren and one brother, Chas. WEBSTER, of Philadlephia, Pa.

She was brought up in a christian home and at an early age united with the Baptist church and later with the Christian church of Tingley, and remained a consistent christian. She loved her home, her church and her friends and flowers. She bore her suffering patiently and was always ready to greet everyone with a smile.

"Sleep, mother dear, your suffering is o'er,
All will be well on that beautiful shore.
We did all we could,
But God knew best;
He called you home
To your heavenly rest."

Funeral services were held Wednesday afternoon at the Church of Christ by the pastor, Marion NILSSON, attended by a large congregation, showing the high esteem in which Grandma HEATON is held by our people. Interment was made in the Tingley cemetery by the side of her husband who passed away twelve years ago.

CARD OF THANKS.

We wish to thank all the friends who have been so kind to our dear mother, bringing her flowers and good cheer in her long illness; also for the lovely flowers, and words of sympathy at this time. May God bless you. - THE CHILDREN.
