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].

CARD OF THANKS.

We take this means of expressing to the neighbors and friends our sincere and heart-felt thanks for the many kindnesses shown on the occasion of the death and funeral of our dear mother. To those who sent floral tributes, to those who furnished music and to all who helped to make our burden of grief lighter we are profoundly grateful.

THE CHILDREN.
