OBITUARY - MRS. SARAH JANE SPURRIER

One of the most loved and respected citizens of this city passed away last Tuesday, when Mrs Sarah Jane SPURRIER departed this life at her home on W. Eighth St., at the age of 73 years, 2 months and 5 days.

She has suffered intensely for years and her late illness during which time she was bedfast most of the time has continued for about two years. She was with her daughter, Mrs. Elizabeth MUMMA, of Iola, Kansas for some time but returned to her own home in this city five months ago, and her son, F. O. SPURRIER and family have been caring for her since that time. All that loving hands and kind hearts could do for the comfort and happiness of their mother was done by each of her children. She has made her home much of the time with her daughter, Mrs. Gertrude BRIGGS of this city. For the past year she has constantly been under the care of a patient and efficient nurse, Mrs. S. J. MALOSH of Iola, Kansas who came here with her patient five months ago.

Mrs. SPURRIER was born in Salem, Henry County, Iowa, on July 18, 1843. There she grew to womanhood and was married on December 16, 1858, to W. H. SPURRIER. To them were born six children: N. B. of North Platte, Nebraska; Frank O. of Scottsbluff, Nebraska; Sanford Hugh, who died at the age of two years; Elizabeth MUMMA of Iola, Kansas; Richard, who passed away about eleven years ago; and Gertrude BRIGGS of this city.

All were present at the funeral except N. B. SPURRIER. He having met with a serious accident recently in which he received a compound fracture in the bones of his limb and other injuries of back and head, so that he is now confined in the hospital at Colorado Springs.

Mr. and Mrs. SPURRIER came to Decatur County over forty years ago and settled on what is known as the Irvin BATHE farm. Ten years later they removed onto what is still known as the Spurrier section where they resided until nine years ago when they came to town and retired in the home where both of them passed away, Mrs. SPURRIER was a wonderfully good mother, her life being one of unselfishness and sacrifice for her children and she will aIways be remembered with most tender reverence by her family and all who knew her.

She was a member of the Baptist Church, being baptized about ten years ago. The funeral was held at the home on Friday afternoon, at 2:30 o'clock, Rev. R. M. SHIPMAN, pastor of the M.E. church at Mount Ayr preached the sermon. The pall bearers were: Frank SPURRIER, a nephew, of Mount Ayr, Iowa, Herbert TEALE, Howard SPURRIER, Jay BARR, Wallace BLAIR and Fred NEWCOMB. Besides her children she leaves to mourn seven grandchildren, seven great grandchildren, and a countless number of friends.

Her husband William Henry SPURRIER had died January 22, 1911. The parents and the youngest three children are buried in Rose Hill Cemetery, Lamoni, Iowa; They are Elizabeth, Richard and Gertrude. Napolean B. is buried in Oakwood Memorial Park, Chatsworth, California, Frank O. in Fairview Cemetery, Scottsbluff, Nebraska, and Sanford Hugh in the lower Quaker cemetery in Salem, Iowa.
