OBITUARY - MRS. LEVI LININGER
Caroline LUDWIG was born in Mercer county, Pennsylvania, July 14, 1837, and died at her home near Diagonal, Iowa,
July 15, 1923, aged eighty-six years and one day. She was united in marriage with Levi LININGER September 11, 1856,
to which union were born seven children - five daughters, Emma BONHAM, deceased; Mary TODD, deceased; Sophronia WALTERS
of Diagonal, Iowa; Kate TODD of Beaumont, Calif.; and Debbie SWARTZ of Mount Ayr, Iowa; and two sons, Jesse and Thomas
LININGER, both of Diagonal, Iowa. Besides her children she leaves to mourn her death ten grandchildren, twelve
great-grandchildren, several great-great-grandchildren, and a host of other relatives and friends.
Mrs. LININGER lived for sixty-three years on the old homestead in Lincoln township [Ringgold County IA], where since 1900 she lived in
widowhood with her two sons, bearing the responsibilities of the home and faithfully performing the duties of wife and
mother. Her life was a life of service, of loving devotion to her family and friends, by which she endeared herself to
them in a way that will place her in everlasting remembrance. She was received and christened in the Lutheran church in
her childhood and died trusting in the Lord and repeatedly calling upon His name.
The funeral was held Tuesday afternoon, July 17, from the Fairview M.E. church, being conducted by Rev. R. B. SHANNON,
pastor of the A.C. church, and the interment was in the Bruning cemetery [near Kent, Union County, Iowa].
