Ringgold Record, 1883

DIED.

Eva HOUSE.jpg HOUSE - Eva E. B. MORTON was born in Henry county, Ill, April 12th, 1855, and was married to Orlando C. HOUSE in March 1877, about the time husband and wife came to Ringgold county, and industriously set about the task of making for themselves a comfortable home near Tingley.

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 14 days old when she died.
