Ohio. on Thurdsay August 5 1920. age 76 years, 1 month and ten days. She was united in marriage to Edward Turner at Marysville Ohio Febuary 23,1865. To this union were born nine children, eight sons and one daughter. Mrs. B.F.Carter of Savannah, Ga. Elmer, of Wilder,Mont. Charles of Springfield Ohio, Arthur of New Burlington,Ohio. Walter of Urbana, and Frank on the old home farm north of Mechanicsburg. and Fred at home, Howard aged 11 years and an infant son preceded her in death.
20 grandchildren, three sisters, Mrs. Elizabeth Wetzel, and Miss Hattie Parthemore of Milford Center and Mrs. Catherine Coffee of Manahatton,Kansas also survice her.
Several years of her early married life were spent in Union and Madison counties, Then she removed to Champaign county, where she spent the remainder of her life.
In early womanhood she gave her heart to God and united with the Amerine M.E.church near Marysville,Ohio and always lived a consistent christain life , uniting with the Treacles Creeek M.E.church upon moving into this community. She possessed a cheerful and lovable disposition and has shown great christian fortitude and patience through more than three years of almost constant suffering, setting forth a beautiful example for all of us, of love and devotion to the blessed Master, whom she love and faithfully served.
Always gretting her friends and neighbors with a welcome smile and kindly word.
Ternder memories of her christain spirit will always linger in the heart of both friends and loved ones.
In her last hours when death hovered near, she called for the devoted husband and all of her children with the grandson, Floyd Turner, whom she reared from infancey and had learned to love as one of ehr own, expressing a desire to see them all once more. mentioning them each one by name, and all except the daughter Hattie and Elmer the eldest son were permitted to be at her bedside when the end came. Surely a good woman is gone, not dead just fone away, May we emulate her faithful example and meet her in that land where sickness and sorrow ,pain and death never enter, and these lines which were recalled to mind by one of the sons, well expresses the feelings of the family.
A precious one from us is gone.
A voice we loved is stilled, A place is vacant in our home ,which never can be filled, God in his wisdom has recalled, the boom his love has given, and though the body slumbers here, her soul is safe in heaven.
