Mrs. Ed Egyabroad Died Last Friday
Mrs. Ed Egyabroad died last Friday of inflammation of the brain, after an illness of short duration. Few sadder bereavements have ever occurred in this vicinity. The departed was only 30 years of age. She leaves six children, all of tender years and needing a mother's care. The departed was a tireless worker, and was noted for her unremitting efforts in behalf of her family.
The funeral was held Tuesday of this week.
Rev. Wm. Landsiedel had charge of the ceremonies, both at the house and the church, officiating in English and German, basing his sermon on Psalm 46, verse 10.
The choir contributed comforting songs, after which interment was made in the Wellsburg cemetery.
The pall bearers were Peter Ruter, Boyd Eckhoff, Peter Riekena, Hemmo Luppen, Jerry Williams, and Wessel Harms.
Ebna Egyabroad, born Looff, wife of Mr. Ed Egyabroad, was born Jan. 23, 1890, at Wellsburg, Iowa. In August the same year baptism was administered to her. Having spent all her life in this community, she was joined in holy wedlock with Mr. Ed Egyabroad July 6, 1908. God blessed their union with six now motherless children, Norval Edward, Floyd, Harvey and Carrie (twins) and the baby, Ella Mae, now five months old.
The deceased took sick about a week before her death. It was but a few until serious complications (inflammation of the brain) set in and she was to face the journey from whence no traveler ever returns.
Her father, a brother, and a sister preceded her in death.
It has pleased the Almighty God to call her in the prime of life, on Friday, the occurrence of her 30th birthday, to the great beyond.
She leaves to mourn her death besides the sorrow-stricken husband, the six little children, her mother, grandmother, three brothers and two sisters, the aged Grandparents Egyabroad, with their three sons and six daughters, and a host of sympathizing friends.
