Anna Slifer Passes Away
About three o'clock last Tuesday afternoon the sudden death of Miss Anna Slifer occurred at the home of her brother, Ed. Slifer.
Anna had not been well for several months, but her uncomplaining nature hid the real facts of her condition from her nearest relatives and most intimate friends. She had been employed at Hotel Columbia and spent most of her time there of late. On Tuesday noon she went home from her work, and complained to her sister-in-law, Mrs. Slifer, of her head hurting her. Mrs. Slifer went to another room to secure some home remedies, but when she returned she found Anna lying on the floor. Help of the neighbors and a physician were quickly summoned, but life had taken its departure. Funeral services were held from the Slifer home at two o'clock Thursday afternoon.
Miss Anna Rebecca Slifer was born October 26, 1868, at Lanark, Ill. She was the third daughter of Jacob and Catherine Slifer. In 1870 she came with her parents to Grundy Center, Iowa, where she has lived until her death on September 14th, 1920.
Mr. and Mrs. Edwin Slifer and children, Bliss, Asa, Ray, Arthur, Dorothy, Edna and Erma of Grundy Center, Mr. and Mrs. Edgar Slatter and children, Samuel, Mrs. Marguerite Bebb and daughter Jane of Nevada, Mrs. Louise Gamble of Rowina, South Dakota, Miss Edna and Mrs. Clara Nelson of Des Moines and Lester Martin of Nevada, survive her.
She was among us ever cheerful and devoted, always thinking of another's comfort.
With a smile she has journeyed onward leaving with us a memory sacred.
