Obituary for Mrs. Cornie Kuper

Mrs. Cornie Kuper, nee Jennie Wilts, daughter of Otto and Fannie Wilts, was born June 29, 1893, in Hardin county and passed away Oct. 6, 1948. She attained the age of 55 years, 3 months, 16 days.

Mrs. Kuper lived all her life in this community. In the year 1912 she moved with her parents to Wellsburg. Her first husband was Henry Ashing, to whom she was united in marriage on Dec. 12, 1917. This marriage was of short duration, because in World War I Mr. Ashing was stricken with flu and passed away on October 5, 1918. But in the year 1921, on the 22nd of February, she was again united in marriage to Cornie Kuper who was permitted to be her faithful companion until her death. This union was blessed with four children, one of which, a son, Harvey, passed away in infancy.

Mr. and Mrs. Kuper have lived on a farm northeast of Wellsburg for 26 years. On the 2nd day of September 1947, they moved to the town of Wellsburg. Together they have had much joy and blessing from God, but they have also had trial and sorrow which called for enduring faith in God's promises.

Mrs. Kuper became greatly afflicted with a very stubborn case of high blood pressure. In March of 1947, she went to the Deaconess hospital at Marshalltown for rest and treatment, but to no avail. In the fall of last year she began to have repeated attacks (and had eleven of them) and finally had a paralytic stroke from which she did not recover. This was a hard trial for her and the family. It was one that would smash every little sign of hope and recovery, one that would cast a shadow of death at every turn. In it all she was looking to Christ for grace and mercy. She loved to hear His Word and hungry for His Bread of Life.

She was a member of the Wellsburg Reformed church and was a member of the Dorcas Society for 36 years, to which she gave her faithful support and consideration.

She leaves to mourn at her passing her deeply bereaved husband, 3 daughters: Irene, Mrs. Ben Viet; Mildred and Lillian, all of Wellsburg; one grandson, Robert Viet; 3 brothers, John and Gratus Wilts of Steamboat Rock and Odie of Grundy Center; two sisters, Mrs. Henry Jaspers of Steamboat Rock and Mrs. Grace Heikens of Wellsburg; and many other relatives and friends.
