Ringgold Record, 1890

OBITUARY.

Died August 23d, 1890, at her home five miles north of Mt. Ayr, Iowa, Olive J. the wife of J. A. HOLMES. The subject of this sketch was born in Des Moines County, Iowa, 1859, where she grew to womanhood. She with her parents [William L. and Drusilla HOLMES] moved to Mt. Ayr, Ringgold County, in the spring of 1876; and where she was married to John A. HOLMES in September, 1879. She became a member of the M. E. Chuch in 1886 and from that time until her untimely taking off lived a consistent christian life. She leaves a husband and two little children to mourn their loss. Also an aged mother, three sisters and a brother and many other friends who had become endeared to her. But they mourn not as those who have no hope, but expect to meet her in that other world where there is no parting no weaping and no death. [Interment at Rose Hill Cemetery, Mount Ayr, Ringgold County, Iowa.]

NOTE: Olive's father William L. HOLMES died at the age of 60 years, 1 month and 17 days on December 27, 1880 with interment at Rose Hill Cemetery, Mount Ayr, Iowa.
