Cynthia L. Gordon, daughter of Angus and Nancy Gordon, was born Feb. 16, 1883, in Allamakee county Iowa, and died November 22, 1901.

Her mother, Nancy E. Gordon, died last August.

The deceased had been suffering for six years and was blind during the last six months of her life. Though so dependent on a mothers care she bore that affliction with marked fortitude. Her gentle and loving disposition made her beloved by the members of her own household, where she will be greatly missed and she will be mourned by a large circle of acquaintances and friends.

The funeral services were held at the Congregational church, of this place, Sunday afternoon, at 2:30 o'clock. The pastor of the church, Rev. S.W. Pollard, spoke from the text, "Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil for Thou art with me, Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me."
