MRS FRANCIS DICKMAN
Death Comes an Unsought Guest and
Calls Another Mother
Miss Frances Walleser was born in Philadelphia, Penn., May 2, 1849. After nine years of residence there the family removed to Garnavillo, Clayton county, Iowa. There she grew to womanhood and married Herman Dickman. To them were born seven sons, namely, Frederick H. and Julius M., of Nashua; J. W. of Nora Springs; Edward, of Forsyth, Mont.; Leonard, dying in infancy; Henry who died at the age of ten years, and Mathew, of Claremont, S. Dak. In 1873 Mr. Dickman, with his family, moved to Nashua, where they resided almost continually.
About September 1st the health of Mrs. Dickman began to fail and she sought medical aid, but in spite of all that loving hands could do she gradually grew worse until Saturday, Oct 20th. at 4 p. m., she closed her eyes in that blessed sleep that knows no awakening, and in a strong faith trusting in her Saviour.
The funeral services were held at St. Michael's church. Rev. B. A. Erdland officiating. Interment took place in the family lot at Oak Hill cemetery.
We feel that in the heavens above,
The angels, whispering to one another,
Can know, among their burning terms of love,
None so devotional as that of 'Mother.'
