In 1869 she moved with her family to New Sharon, Iowa, where they resided until 1900, when they moved to Clearfield, Iowa, that they might pass their declining years with their children.

When a child she gave her heart to her Savior, uniting with the United Presbyterian church of Washington, Iowa; transferring her membership to the M. E. church of New Sharon, and to the M. E. church of Clearfield, an entire life of Christian service.

She leaves to mourn her loss, one son, Georga C. Kopp, and two daughters, Mrs. 0. C. Hill and Mrs G. E. Grace, ten grand-children and eleven great-grand-children.
