Deloit, Dec. 28-Special-
Below we give an obituary of one who was long a resident of this county.
Mrs. Florence Horr, who died at her home at Bronson December 20th, was born in Baldwin county, Alabama, in 1861 and moved to Iowa with her mother in early girlhood. Her mother and step-father, Mr. and Mrs. Patton, lived many years near where Buck Grove is now located. Florence was united in marriage to James Horr in the spring of 1875 at Deloit. They lived near Buck Grove and Deloit for several years and in Nebraska a few years, and afterwards went to Odebolt, where they lived a few years and then moved to Bronson, their present home. Her mother, Mrs. Patton, has made her home with them for several years, where she has been made comfortable. Mrs. Horr united with the L.D.S. church in 1879 and was a faithful member until death. Three sons were born to them, Marion, Edward and Clyde, two of whom, Marion and Edward survive her. She also leaves her husband, an aged mother, two sisters, Mrs. Elliott and Miss Carrie Patton, of Sioux City, and a host of friends, which was shown by the beautiful floral tribute at the funeral, which was held at the M.E. church at Bronson. Elder Booker, of Sioux City, preached the funeral sermon. He was assisted by the M.E. minister. The remains were laid to rest in the Graceland cemetery at Morningside. Mrs. Horr had many friends here who extend their sympathy to the bereaved ones.
