Mrs. Lines Passes Away
Mrs. Grace Lines passed away at her home in this city early Saturday morning after an illness extending over a period of several years. Her illness, which eventually caused her death, developed about three years ago when she suffered a nervous breakdown following the death of her father, Samuel Leigh. Since that time she had been a semi-invalid; up and around some of the time and at other times bedfast. A little over a year ago she submitted to an operation but when the incision was made it was found that her condition was such that to complete the operation would in all probability cause her immediate death. She was brought home from the hospital in a few weeks and for a number of months showed every indication of regaining her health. Early this spring her trouble returned and she grew steadily worse until death came early Saturday morning to relieve her from her suffering.
Mrs. Lines moved to Grundy Center from Rockford, Iowa, about six years ago and established a home where she cared for her aged parents, Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Leigh. Her father preceded her in death about three years ago and her mother about a year later.
Grace Leigh was born in Rockford, Iowa, February 7, 1877 and died at her home in Grundy Center, September 7, 1929, at the age of 52 years and 7 months.
She was united in marriage to William Lines of Marble Rock on February 28, 1901, and to this union was born one son, Claude. She leaves to mourn her loss besides her son, one brother, Arthur Leigh, of Chicago, and one sister, Miss Ida Leigh, of this city.
Mrs. Lines was a member of the Methodist church of this place. She was a woman who was beloved by all who knew her, being always of a loving disposition and very cheerful thru out all the months of her suffering.
Funeral services were held at the home Monday afternoon in charge of her pastor, Rev. F. O. Winslow. Interment in the Beckman cemetery.
Relatives from out of town attending the funeral were Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Leigh, Chicago, Mr. and Mrs. Vern Leigh, Rockford; Charlie Lossee and daughter, Mrs. Harry Ackley, Mr. and Mrs. Pierce and son and Mrs. Lines of Marble Rock.
