was too great where a member of her family was concerned and the neighbors and friends were never
forgotten. her many acts of kindness will always be remembered. In their early girlhood she became
a member of the Methodist Episcopal church at Greenfield, Iowa, and always loved to attend and when
in later years when the cares of her home were heavy and ill health came she could not attend, but she
never failed to see that her children were faithful in their Christian duty. Her memory will always be
enshrined in the hearts of her family.
Funeral services were held Tuesday afternoon at 2:30 at the
home in northwest Mount Ayr, being conducted by Rev. E. S. MENOHER, pastor of the M. E. church, and
interment was in Rose Hill cemetery. The funeral was largely attended, not only by friends in Mount
Ayr and vicinity, but relatives and friends came from Chariton and Greenfield to join with
the friends of the home community in paying tribute of respect to the departed. Many and beautiful
were the floral offerings.Card of Thanks.
In the hour of sore trial,
when the death of our beloved wife and mother overwhelms us with grief, words cannot express the
gratitude we feel for the many acts of kindness and the sympathy expressed by our neighbors and
friends. For the beautiful floral tributes and for every effort made to lighten our burden of
sorrow we are profoundly grateful.
-J. C. WOLF and family.
