NEWMAN—At Lamoni, Iowa, July 30, 1893, Sister Lovina Newman, aged 78 years, 1 month, and 3 days.
She was born in Chautauqua County, New York, and married Stephen Newman in 1839. He died in Lamoni in 1883, since then her home has been with or near her daughter, Sr. Minnie Wickes.
She was the mother of five daughters all of whom are living, and four were with her at the last, including Sr. Nellie Kennedy, of Logan, Iowa. Also three of her sisters were present at the funeral, one of them Sr. B. F. Wickes, of Deloit, Iowa.
Sister Newman and the two daughters named accepted the gospel, and she was baptized August 23, 1868, by Elder Eli Clothier. She remained faithful until death. Her life is also a happy memory to her daughters, as one who walked devotedly along the path of duty and who did her life work well.
By her request Bro. H.A. Stebbins preached the funeral sermon, and her mortal form was laid to rest at Rose Hill. Bro. R.M. Elvin assisted in the services.
