Howard Courant
Howard, Elk County, Kansas
December 15, 1899

OBITUARY - MRS. Elizabeth WALTER

DIED - At her home near Cave Springs, Elk Co. Kansas, Thursday, November 30, 1899, at 20 minutes before six, p.m., Mrs. Elizabeth WALTER, age 58 years, 1 month, 19 days.

Elizabeth SWIM was born in Ohio, on October 11, 1841. She removed to Illinois and thence to Iowa, where she grew to womanhood, and on August 4, 1867, was married to Peter F. WALTER, in Ringgold county, Iowa. She lived in that county with her husband and children until May, 1882, when they removed to Elk county, Kansas, where she made her home until her death. She contracted malaria fever last summer and was a sufferer for several months, bearing her pain with Christian fortitude. Death came to her relief on Thanksgiving day, and she was ready and willing to go. The burial took place the following day at Grace Lawn Cemetery, in Howard.

Mrs. WALTER became a member of the M. E. Church in her youth and was an enthusiastic worker in the church and Sunday school whenever her health would permit. She was a dutiful and loving wife, an indulgent and affectionate mother to her five children. Her husband and children all survive her and deeply mourn her departure.

Funeral services in her memory will be held some time in the near future.

A host of friends sorrow in her death and the bereft husband and sons and daughters have the most heartfelt sympathy of all.
