Alas! how soon are our brightest hopes dissipated - that dreaded scourge, (consumption) tells the story of her sufferings,
her alternating hopes and fear. She died Sunday, Aug. 26th, 1883. An affectionate wife, a faithful friend, a kind and
generous neighbor, a devoted christian woman. She laid aside the toil and care of this life and sank peacefully to rest in
the Everlasting Arms.
While husband, mother, sisters and brothers are filled with grief inexpressible at their own loss, yet
they are assured that for her "to die was gain."Tingley, Sept. 4th, 1883 --W. B. T.
NOTE: Interment was made at Eugene Cemetery, Eugene, Ringgold County, Iowa. Evelyn was twenty-seven years, 4 months and
