At Rest

Mary A. Jones died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Della Johnson in Colorado Springs, Colo.

For the past four months she has been a silent sufferer. The family has given her the very best of care that loving hands could show. On her dying bed she sang quite clearly, "There is a fountain filled with blood."

Mrs. Johnson accompanied the body to Grundy Center for burial beside her husband who preceded her to the better land Jan. 10th, 1896.

The funeral was held in the church of the Brethren Saturday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock. A. P. Blough of Waterloo preached from Job 5:26 showing distinctly the characteristics of a completed life.

She leaves to mourn her death not only a circle of relatives but also many friends in Grundy Center, who knew her beautiful life.

Obituary
Mary A. Hart was born at Randolph, Portage county, Ohio, May 19th, 1835 and died in Colorado Springs, Colo., July 14, 1910 after a brief illness of about four months.
