Decatur County Journal
March 22, l900
MRS. SARAH M. (HISEY) SUMMERS was born in Athens, Ohio, August 5, l844.
Moved to Henry County, Missouri, in l856, and from thence to Decatur
County, Iowa, in l860, where she professed conversion and joined the
Methodist Episcopal Church. She was married to J.H. SUMMERS, April 3,
l86l, from which union there were eight children born, six of whom are
still living, two having gone on to occupy the home on the other side,
and to await the coming of the rest of the family. From Decatur County,
Iowa, she removed with her family to Mitchell County, Kansas, to their
farm ten miles south of Beloit in l878, where they resided and made for
themselves a comfortable home, and reared and educated their children.
In November last they moved to Beloit, where she departed this life
February l7, l900, of cancer.
Sister SUMMERS united with the Pleasant View Church soon after moving to
Mitchell County, and remained a faithful member of the same until her
death. She was a devout member of the Woman's Relief Corps, of Beloit,
as well as a member of the Pleasant View W.C.T.U., engaging in all the
active work of these societies, where her presence will be so much
missed, and yet where her influence will still live. She was a great
sufferer for a number of weeks prior to her death, but a most patient
one. But now her sufferings are passed, and the joys of an endless life
are begun.
She leaves behind to mourn her loss an aged father, 83 years old, one
sister living in Illinois, a faithful husband and six grown
children--three boys and three girls--all of whom can truly say:
I've a mother now in Heaven,
She's singing that new song;
It's praise to our Savior,
That she had loved so long.
The funeral services were held at the Pleasant View Chapel, Monday,
February l9, conducted by her Pastor, the Rev. J.C. Helmick, assisted by
Rev. Brainard, of Beloit, a former Pastor, and the remains were interred
in the Pleasant View Cemetery.
