The deceased became a member of the Christian church in Sedan about the year 1915 and lived a faithful Christian life. She was also a member of the Woman’s Relief Corps and was quite active in this helpful organization.
Her life was characterized by unusual perseverance. When she was grown because of unavoidable circumstances she had not learned to read and write and felt that she needed this knowledge, especially so she would be able to write and receive letters. She overcame this handicap by walking ten miles to the home of a neighbor who in due time taught her how to read and write.
