MONROE. Near Lamoni, Iowa, November 29, 1896, Sr. Anna M., wife of Bro. Isaac Monroe, aged 32 years, 5 months, and 23 days.
She was the daughter of Bro. John and Sr. Jane Buckingham, and was born in Salt Lake City in 1864. They removed thence to Idaho and then to Oregon, where they united with the Reorganized Church [of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints], being all baptized by Elder J. C. Clapp on October 3, 1875. Never having been connected with polygamy their lives were free from any taint of it.
The parents were pure and just in their natures, and the daughters inherited like dispositions. The family came to Lamoni in October, 1881. The father died that winter and the mother two years later. Sr. Anna married Bro. Monroe, January 3, 1886.
She leaves five children, the youngest but ten days old. She was very amiable, patient, generous, and unselfish in her character, and has left a spotless record as a member of the church, and as daughter, wife, mother, sister, and friend. The loss to husband, children, and three loving sisters, is very great. The sermon was preached by Elder H. A. Stebbins, assisted by Elder T. J. Bell.
