MRS. ANGELINE WEBB CALLED TO REWARD.
Passed Away at Home of Her Son at Montgomery on Friday
Last Week.
.
Mrs. Angeline Webb, one of the older residents of Dickinson County, Iowa, passed away at the home of her son, B.A. [Berry Alfred] Webb, in Montgomery on Friday, April 29th, following an illness of several weeks.
.
While Mrs. Webb at no time has been considered dangerous yet she has been gradually failing owing to her advanced age. She awakened at an early hour Friday morning and talked to members of the family seemingly in her usual manner and in a few moments had quietly slipped over the bar. Mrs. Webb came to Dickinson County at the time of building the railroad in the early eighties and saw the county transformed from a prairie land to its present state of settlement. In those early days following the death of her husband she remained on the farm and reared her children to manhood and womanhood. Mrs. Webb was possessed of most noble traits and has left an indelible mark on the memory of those privileged to know her which will not be erased as time passes.
.
Angeline Blythe was born in Tennessee, June 26th, 1832. Moved with her parents, [Joseph Blythe & Sarah Crockett], to Shelby County, Illinois, when a young girl. Was married to William Y. Webb, December 12, 1852. Aside from a few years spent in the state of Texas, Illinois was the family home until the spring of 1880, when they moved to Iowa and located on a farm in Lakeville township, Dickinson County, at which place, ten years later she left a widow. Since which time she has lived near, or with, her children in Iowa and South Dakota.
.
She passed from this life at the home of her son, B. A. Webb, Montgomery, Iowa, April 29, 1921. Had she lived until June 26th, she would have been 89 years of age. She was the mother of five children, two of which died in infancy. Those left to mourn her loss are: J. T. Webb of Spirit Lake, Iowa, Mrs. N. S. Stierwalt of Bradley, South Dakota, B.A. Webb of Montgomery, Iowa.
.
She [?] brothers and two sisters, all younger than herself, viz W. T. Blythe of Indianapolis, Indiana, Mrs. Sarah Small of Shelbyville, Illinois, Mrs. Ruth Curry and A. M. Blythe of Gays, Illinois. She also leaves eleven grandchildren and sixteen great grandchildren.
.
In early girlhood she accepted our Savior as her guide, whom she has followed all during the years of her long and busy life. Early in life she united with the Baptist Church of which denomination she was a member at the time of her death. The funeral services was conducted at the Baptist Church in Spirit Lake, Iowa, by Rev. Miles of the Presbyterian Church and the body was laid to rest in the Lakeview Cemetery.
.
End.
