Posted in Decatur County Journal May 20,1897 Iowa

Olive Sardinna Delk was born in Montgomery County, Ohio, September 22, 1851, and died in her home in Center Township, Saturday, May 15, at 4 o'clock a.m.

She removed to Chariton with her parents in the spring of 1856, and from there to Decatur County in 1863. She was united in marriage to A.N. Arney, August 20, 1871. To them were born two children, Dolly M. and J. Vergie, both of whom with the husband survive.

She was converted and joined the M.E. Church at Fairview in 1874, since which she lived a faithful and conscientious Christian life, only laying down her work with her life. Faithful, earnest and true, she has gone to her reward.

Mr. Arney and his beloved companion started in life with nothing but their hands and a purpose to work and live for one another; hence going through many hardships and self denials their efforts were blessed so they had plenty of the things that go to make home enjoyable.

Truly "the blessings of the Lord maketh rich" and he is rich who is contented with what is lawfully his own. They gave their children a good education and in her sickness, Mr. Arney spared no pains in doing all that could be done for her.

The funeral occurred Sunday, May 16th at 2 p.m. at the M.E. Church in Leon, where a large audience gathered to pay respects. The writer of this notice, by request, spoke from Job 14:14, "If a man die, shall he live again?" proving by many scriptural quotations that Christ has risen from the grave and become the first fruits of the resurrection. We cannot lift the veil that clouds our finite minds to know what we shall be, but we have the assurance that we will be resurrected a glorious body immortal.

To the children, husband and all who feel this sad loss, we commend to Him who has been sent to bind up the broken hearted and comfort all that mourn.
