MRS. HESTER HORNING SUCCUMBS MAY 23

Mrs. Hester HORNING, a resident of the Bedford community for many years, died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Hattie STRAIGHT in Conway, Friday, May 23, 1941, at the age of 84 years, 6 months and 25 days.

The funeral services were held at the Bedford Baptist Church Sunday afternoon, conducted by Rev. Earl LONGFELLOW of Huron, So. Dak. Burial was in the Fairview cemetery.

Hester BEERY, daughter of Peter and Sarah (BLOSSER) BEERY, was born near Shambaugh, Iowa, on November 28, 1856. She grew to womanhood in that vicinity and on September 2, 1875 was married to Abraham HORNING, establishing a home joining that of her parents.

To them were born nine children: Martin Isaac HORNING of Fort Collins, Colo.; Mrs. Hattie May STRAIGHT of Conway, Iowa; Mrs. Sarah Ann "Sadie" MURRAY of Eaton, Colo.; Charlotte, who died in 1897 at the age of 13 years; Mrs. Effie [Effie Lydia] DOUGHERTY, Roy HORNING and Cyrus HORNING of Bedford; Mrs. Clara HALL of Louisburg, Mo.; and Ralph Edwin HORNING, who died in 1917 at the age of 18 years.

Besides her own children, twenty-five grandchildren and thirteen great grandchildren remain to ponder over the wise admonition and kindly advice of one who had gained much wisdom from a full life on earth and many years of fellowship with her Heavenly Father. Her great interest and anxiety for her loved ones increased as each year passed.

Since the death of her companion on November 30, 1928, she had often expressed the desire to join him, but was reconciled, active and cheerful to the end.

She was the last to be called of thirteen children, with the exception of one sister, Mrs. Matilda DAVIS of Mount Ayr, Iowa. She was of hardy pioneer stock, who braved and endured many hardships in building and supporting substantial homes, the influence of which goes on and on in coming generations.

Among those from out of town attending the last rites for Mrs. Hester HORNING in Bedford Sunday were the following:

Mrs. R. J. MURRAY of Eaton, Colo.; Mr. and Mrs. Ralph HALL, Paul and Alice HALL of Louisburg, Mo.; Mr. and Mrs. Truman HALL and daughter Emily of Kansas City, Mo.; Harry DOUGHERTY of Independence, Mo.; Mr. and Mrs. Merton MULLEN of Clearfield; Mr. and Mrs. Dwight JONES and two children of Henderson, Iowa.

Mr. and Mrs. Ed FALK and Marvin, Mr. and Mrs. Wiley VOSBURG, Mr. and Mrs. Charles McALPIN and family of Clarinda; Mrs. Mattie HORNING, Mr. and Mrs. Howard CASKEY, Mr. and Mrs. Fred GOUDIE, of Gravity; Mr. and Mrs. Floyd DOUGHERTY and son, N. H. STRAIGHT and F. S. BURNHAM of New Market; Mr. and Mrs. Clare HORNING and son of Shenandoah; Mrs. Leona HORNING, Lettie and Harvey HORNING, Mr. and Mrs. Lynn HORNING and two sons, Mr. and Mrs. James BURLEY, Mr. and Mrs. Ernest BEERY, all of College Springs.

Mr. and Mrs. Charles BECK and daughter Phyllis, Mr. and Mrs. Lee STRAIGHT, Mr. and Mrs. Ted SELDERS, Junior and Dorothy SELDERS, Mr. and Mrs. Orval BROWN of Sharpsburg; M. J. SHELEY, Mr. and Mrs. Henry ROUSH, Mr. and Mrs. Ott OBERHAUSER of Hopkins; Will DAVIS, Mr. and Mrs. Clair DAVIS, Mrs. Leo TAYLOR and Mrs. Carter HOLDEN of Mount Ayr.

NOTE: Abraham A. HORNING, son of Jacob and Anna "Annie" (GOOD) HORNING, was born in Franklin County, Ohio on November 23, 1853, and died near Bedford, Iowa, after a few hours illness on November 25, 1928, aged 75 years and two days.
