OBITUARY - MARGARET JANE HOPKINS.
Margaret Jane JARRED, daughter of George W. and Abigail Ann JARRED, was born July 3, 1860, in Edgar county, Illinois, and
died at her home near Watterson March 23, 1933, aged 72 years, eight months and 20 days.
She came with her parents to
Iowa when a small child. She was left motherless at the age of nine years. She was raised in a christian home and at an
early age was converted and joined the M. E. church and later united with the Hickory Grove Advent Christian church and remained a faithful member until her death.
She was united in marriage with M. [Martin] V. HOPKINS April 4, 1888. To this union was born one son, Fred Marton, who
passed away December 6, 1920. She also filled a mother's place to one step daughter, Nancy Margaret.
The husband and
father, M. V. HOPKINS, fell asleep June 13, 1924. [Martin was born August 13, 1840.]
She leaves to mourn her death two
sisters, Mrs. Sarah ENGLE and Mrs. Lucretia BARNETT, both of Wellsville, Kan.; two half sisters, Mrs. Alvira KLING of
Holton, Kan., and Katherine WASHBURN of Obar, N.M.; one half brother, Arthur JARRED of Mount Ayr; one step-daughter, Mrs.
Nannie HACKER, of Kellerton; three granddaughters and three great grandchildren, several nieces and nephews and a host of
One brother, Joe JARRED, and one sister, Mary McANINCH, preceded her in death.
"Aunt Mag", as she was
familiarly called by many, will be sadly missed in the neighborhood. She was always ready to minister to the sick, or help
those in need. In her later years she was deprived of the privilege of church attendance, but took great comfort in her
Bible, and many of its precious promises she repeated in her last illness. She fell asleep believing in the soon return of
her Lord and of a glorious resurrection.Until the Easter glories light the skies;
Until the dead in Jesus shall arise,
And He shall come, but not in lowly guise,
Until made beautiful by love devine,
Thou in the image of thy Lord shall shine,
And he shall bring that golden crown of thine,
[written by a friend]
Funeral services were held Saturday afternoon at Hickory Grove church, being conducted by Rev. E. S. MENOHER, pastor of the
Mount Ayr Methodist church, and burial was in the Hickory Grove cemetery.
