The Mount Ayr Record-News
October, 1928

OBITUARY - MRS. NANCY ELLEN HERRINGTON

Nancy Ellen, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John STEELE, was born in Greene county, Pennsylavnia February 3, 1846. She was the youngest of eleven children.

She came in early life as a pioneer of Ringgold county, Iowa, where she resided until 1900, when she moved to Omaha, Nebraska, where she spent the last 28 years of her life.

She was united in marriage to Mr. Marion HERRINGTON, 1867. To this union were born seven children, four boys and three girls. She possessed faith in Christ in early life and united with the Baptist church at Delphos, Iowa, where she remained a faithful member until death called her to her reward.

She passed away at the home of her daughter at 4505 Camden Ave, Omaha, Neb. October 25, 1928, aged 82 years, eight months and 22 days. Her companion having passed away about 39 years ago and one son having preceded her in death. She leaves to mourn their loss one sister, Miss Sally STEELE, of Pennsylvania; three sons, Richard H., of Sioux, Iowa; John of Benton, Iowa; Frank of Powell, Wyo; three daughters, Mrs. G. W. ABARR, Mrs. A. D. MALOY; Mrs. I. MOEN, all of Omaha, Neb.; twenty grandchildren and eleven great-grandchildren besides many other relatives and friends.

Mrs. HERRINGTON was a person whose friends were numbered by her acquaintances. She gave the best of her life for her seven children whom she reared to manhood and womanhood. She was always ready to sacrifice herself to be a blessing to others. We feel that our loss is her eternal gain.

A precious one from us gone,
A Voice we lived is stilled;
A Place is vacant in our home,
Which never can be filled.

Funeral services were held at the Baptist church in Mount Ayr Sunday afternoon, October 28, conducted by Rev. C. J. Hamilton and interment made in Rose Hill cemetery.

Those from a distance attending the funeral were Mr. and Mrs. Richard R. HERRINGTON and daughter, of Sioux City; Mrs. and Mrs. A. D. MALOY and daughter; Mr. and Mrs. Geo. ABARR and two sons; Mrs. Ethel MOEN and daughter Lousie; Mr. and Mrs. Frederick PETERSEN of Omaha, Neb; Frank HERRINGTON, of Powell, Wyo; Mrs. Ienza PARSHALL, of Clearfield; Mrs. Bell HOOVER, of Des Moines; Mr. and Mrs. R. M. BOWLBY, of Beaconsfield.

NOTE: Nancy Ellen (STEEL) HERRINGTON was the daughter of John STEEL and Nancy Agnes (BOWEN) STEEL and a sister of John Hemphill STEEL and Clarissa "Clara" (STEEL) STEPHENS.
