A host of nieces, nephews and friends mourn her passing.

Her gentle face and patient smile,
With sadness we recall
You had a kindly word for each
And died beloved by all.

The voice is mute and stilled
The heart that loved we well and true
Oh, bitter was the trial to part
From one so good as you.

You are not forgotten, loved one,
Nor will you ever be,
Asl long as life and memory last,
We will remember thee.
We miss you now, our hearts are sore.
As time goes by we'll miss you more.
Your loving smile, your gentle face,
No one can fill your vacant place.

Funeral services were held October 24, 1985 from the United Church of Diagonal, Diagonal, Iowa, conducted by Rev. Eydie DEAL. Music was provided by Mrs. Claire NEWTON, Mrs. Gary BICKERS and Mrs. Roger TRULLINGER.
