A Good Woman Gone to Her Reward
Barbara Shaw was born in Bamberg, Bavaria, Germany, April 27th, 1813. She was united in marriage to John Warner September 1, 1834. They came to American in 1839 and settled in Myersville, Penn. In 1849 they moved to Maryland, from there they moved to Iowa in 1865 where they resided on a farm near Waterloo until Mrs. Warner's health failed. They then made their home with their children and for the past year they have lived with their daughter, Mrs. B. Tompkins, at whose home she died February 11, at 1 o'clock.
She leaves a husband, two sons and six daughters to mourn her death: Mr. S. Warner, Mr. J. Warner, Canton, S. Dak.; Mrs. B. Tompkins, Mrs. J. Hostetler, Oakland, M. D.; Mrs. P. P. Bailey, Harper, Kas.; Mrs. J. F. Wilson, Eureka, S. Dak.; Mrs. C. W. Budd, Des Moines, Iowa; Mrs. Gibson, Reinbeck.
She had been ill about four weeks and was a patient and uncomplaining sufferer. Her advanced years and infirmaties made her friends doubt her recovery and her death was not unexpected or a sudden shock. Four of her children were present when she passed away and to them she gave words of loving assurance that she would soon be safe in the arms of Jesus. She had been reconciled for years to the thought of death and to her it was only a passing on--going home--where loved ones would meet her in that better land, and where she would await the coming of her aged husband whose earthly pilgrimage is almost at end. Her bible was her stay and comfort and she continued to receive her spiritual nourishment from its encouraging promises while life lasted. She was a true and devoted christian having united with the Dunkard church fifty years ago. She had not been able to attend church services for a number of years but never relinquished her hold upon the divine promises contained in God's Word, and her consistent christian life is a worthy example to her children and friends. A faithful wife and mother, her years were well and profitably spent and those she leaves behind have the consolation of knowing that she has gone to meet a just reward--fit recompense for the faithful who run with patience the race set before them.
The funeral services were conducted at the residence at 2:30 o'clock Thursday afternoon by Rev. Jacob Murry, of Waterloo, an old friend of the deceased and her husband. The text chosen was from Rev. 14th chapter and 13th verse.
The remains were laid to rest in Fairview cemetery to await the final call. The family and especially the aged husband, who are left to mourn the departed one, have the sympathy of the community in their loss.
