The Mount Ayr Record-News
November 20, 1910

OBITUARY - MRS. J. H. STEEL

Rebecca WRIGHT was born in Whitely, Pa. September 25, 1840. She was converted and united with the Baptist church at her old home at the age of fourteen and continued stedfastly until death. She was united in marriage to John H. STEEL September 22, 1862, and five years later they moved to Ringgold county, Iowa, where they lived continuously until death claimed her companion about five years ago. Since then she has made her home with her niece, Mrs. Glazier (sic, should be Glasier) PRENTIS, and her sister, Mrs. SAMS.

A little more than two years ago she suffered a paralytic stroke from the effects of which she never recovered although she rallied and at times was cheerful and happy. But the last ten weeks of her life were full of suffering although borne with patience and calmly awaiting the Lord's summons which came Sunday morning, November 13, 1910 at 3:30 at the home of her sister, Mrs. SAMS, near Maloy, Iowa.

Her life was full of good deeds and besides a sister and two brothers, a number of nephews and neices and other immediate relatives she leaves a great number of friends and neighbors who will sadly miss her.

The funeral was conducted by the writer at the Delphos Baptist church after which a large company of people followed the remains to Rose Hill cemetery at Mt. Ayr, where she was laid to rest to await the Master's call. - J. B. CASH
