The Tingley Vindicator
Tingley, Iowa
November 18, 1937

OBITUARY - MRS. SUMMERS

Louvisa Ann BASS, daughter of Lydia and William BASS, was born in Tazewell County, Illinois, May 30, 1864 and departed this life Friday, November 12, 1937 at her home in Tingley, Iowa, aged 73 years, five months and 12 days. She was one of a family of six children all of whom preceded her in death save a sister, Mrs. Martha BAUER of Hopedale, Illinois.

Deceased was united in marriage to Jefferson H. SUMMERS, February 3, 1882. To this union eleven children were born, three of whom died in infancy, and one, a son, passed away at the age of 19 years. Those surviving are Claude of Humbolt, Iowa, Jefferson and Earl of Grants Pass, Oregon, Mrs. May REECE of Kansas City, Missouri, Mrs. Blanche BAIVERS, Mrs. Ellen BISCHOFF and Mrs. Louvisa BLUNCK of Tingley. There are also 24 grand children and two great grandchildren.

After marriage, Mr. and Mrs. SUMMERS engaged in farming and in April 1891, came to Ringgold County, Iowa and settled on a farm near Tingley, where they resided either on the farm or in Tingley.

When Mrs. SUMMERS was quite young, she became a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church. When coming to Iowa, she united with the Church of Christ in Ellston and later placed her member ship with the Church of Christ at Tingley. Her family, her neighbors and her brethren of the church unite in proclaiming her life as one of consistent faithful Christian purpose.

Deceased had been in usual health except from infrequent attacks of heart [she was critically ill with heart trouble] until Saturday, November 4, when she was compelled to take to bed. She gradually failed until death came of Friday afternoon.

Aside from a sister in Illinois and a large family of children, grand children and great grandchildren, there are a host of friends and neighbors who unite with those who mourn the loss of this faithful woman.

Farewell dear mother, sweet thy rest.
We are with tears and worn with pain
Farewell till in some happy place
We shall behold they face again
Tis ours to miss thee all our years
and tender memories of thee keep
Trust in the Lord to rest, for so,
He giveth his beloved sleep.

Farewell services were held Sunday afternoon at the Christian Church conducted by her paster, Rev. BURR, and interment made in the Tingley Cemetery.

Card of Thanks.

We with to thank all the friends who were so kind to us in our great sorrow in the passing of our dear mother and grandmother; also for the lovely card tributes.
