Funeral services were held at the Stroud-Lindsay Funeral Home in Afton, December 23, 1981 with Rev. [John] LING officiating. Burial was at the Oakland Cemetery at Shannon City.

I cannot say, and I will not say
That she is dead -- she is just away!
With a cheery smile
And a wave of the hand,
She has wandered into an unknown land,
And left us dreaming how very far
If needs must be,
Since she lingers there.
So think of her faring on, as dear
In the love of There
As the love of Here;
Think of her still as the same,
I say: She is not dead --
She is just away!
~ James Whitcomb Riley
