The Mount Ayr Record-News, 1933
OBITUARY - MRS. JOHN JACKSON.
Elizabeth EWING, daughter of John and Mary EWING, was born in Vinton, Ohio, April 3, 1863, and died at the Methodist hospital in
St. Joseph, Mo., August 12, 1933, being 70 years, four months and nine days old.
When very young she came with her parents to
Worth county, Missouri, where she was taught the lessons of a hardy and industrious life, obtained through public schools and
pioneer country experiences. As a young woman she taught in the public shcools of Worth county for a number of years. At the age
of twenty-four she was married to John JACKSON of Worth county, Missouri, on August 3, 1887. To this union were born five children -
two sons, Clifford of Mount Ayr, Iowa, and Lester, of Grant City, Mo., also one daughter Leota, of Grant City, Mo., who survive her.
Two daughters, Louis and Margaret, died in infancy. Besides these children and a bereaved husband she leaves four brothers, Andrew EWING of
Mount Ayr, Iowa, John Ewing of Grant City, Mo., Eugene EWING of Boonville, Mo., and Dr. Ernest EWING of El Reno, Okla.; also one sister,
Mrs. Margaret ADAMS, of Grant City, Mo. With eight grandchildren she leaves many other relatives and friends to mourn their loss.
Twenty-four years ago this summer she was converted, baptized and joined the Jackson Advent Christian church, under the labor of Bro. W.
S. BOWDEN, now of Clayton, Ohio. She has been an earnest and faithful member of the church ever since. When the writer became acquainted with
her a few weeks ago, he found her trusting in her Savior and enjoyed a very pleasant season of prayer with her.
While loving life yet she
could trust her Savior while passing through the dark valley knowing that "thous are with me, they rod and thy staff, they comfort me." She
was a kind, thoughtful mother, ever ready to sacrifice her own interest and comforts for the welfare of those around her. Her worry before her
death was with regard to the care of others rather than herself. She sleeps in Jesus awaiting the morning of the resurrection. The funeral was
held at Lotts Grove,where words of comfort were spoken from II Thess. 4:18. -- W. O. WILLIAMS.
"Dearest mother, you have left us,
And our hearts are sad tonight,
Oh, that we again could see you;
All our dreams would be so bright.
Mother, dearest, you have left us,
And with thee our joys have fled,
Oh, it's hard to think our mother
So good and kind and true is dead.
Oh, what a christian example she led us,
So many loving words of kindness
To husband, children and friends she said:
Oh, how sad, dearest mother is dead."
Card of Thanks.
We wish to thank all our neighbors and friends for the many deeds and tokens of kindness in this
our hour of bereavement. --John JACKSON and family.
