from the scrapbook of Sarah Alice SHOWALTER MARSHALL

SHOWALTER Ė In Ringgold Co., Iowa, at the home of her father-in-law J.J Showalter [sic] Mrs. Rebecca Brooks Showalter, (wife of Hugh Showalter) aged 23 years.

Rebecca, like all others of Godís children, clung hard to this life, and even when we that loved her had given up every hope, she still hoped and struggled against death. But though loved ones of earth did all they could to comfort her in hours of awful agony, they could not ward off that awful enemy. But in that disease of consumption he came and ruthlessly tearing our precious jewel from loving arms, and without heeding our tears or breaking hearts, bore her away to his silent abode. But we do not sorrow as those which have no hope; for we know that if God could bring Jesus form the dead, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. And we know she sleeps in Jesus, for so she lived Early in life she had given her heart and consecrated her life to Jesus and he will never forget her, but will be sure to send some angel for her in the morning; and if he should come with his angels before we fall asleep we will not have to meet him without her. For we which are alive and remain shall not prevent them which are asleep, for the dead in Christ shall rise first, then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air; and so shall we ever be with the Lord Blessed thought, we will all go home together. May that morning soon come, when Rebecca, can again join our number as we go not to the house of the God but to meet Jesus. Not to spend a few happy hours together as in bygone days, but to live together forever. Mrs. Showalter leaves a husband and two sisters to mourn her loss. Services by the writer.
