Decatur County Journal
Thursday, December l4, l9l6

DELILA LOE, the daughter of ANDREW J. and MATILDA (HAMM) WELDON, was
born in Lincoln County, Kentucky, January l0, l838. She died at Leon,
Iowa, December 5th, l9l6, age 78 years, l0 months, 25 days.

She was married to MADISON LOE December 24, l857. To this union three
children were born, ICY MAY, who died in childhood, MRS. EMMA AVERY and
MRS. IDA CHASTAIN, both of Leon, Iowa.

Sister LOE is the last of a family of eleven children, JOHN WELDON, of
Cainsville, Mo., and ANG WELDON, of Davis City, Iowa, nephews of the
deceased are the only near relatives surviving.

Sister LOE was a pioneer. She came to Leon in her childhood to make her
home with her uncle. She remembered the time when Leon was only a
prairie. She has always lived in this community and has seen the growth
of the community, of our town, and of its churches.

She was converted under the ministry of Elder J.C. Porter, and became a
member of the Christian Church of which church she was a member at the
time of her death. Sister LOE comes very near being a charter member of
this church. She loved her church enough to defend it at all times.
The church life and welfare was a constant topic of conversation. She
is not dead but sleepeth, she has only gone to that larger reward which
her Christ made possible.

Funeral services were conducted from the Christian Church Wednesday
afternoon, December 6, at 2:30, by Henry Esch, Pastor. Interment was at
Leon Cemetery.
