Mrs. H. E Billings.
Mrs. H. E. Billings, nee Ida Maynard, was born at New Oregon, Howard county, Iowa, April 24, 1859, and died at Webster City, March 24, 1897, being in her thirty-eighth year.
Deceased was well known in both Hamilton and Howard counties, where for several years she was a successful school teacher. She was also a vocalist of more than local reputation, being at one time one of the finest alto singers in this section of the state.
In 1879 she was united in marriage with H. E. Billings. Two years later they removed to Jewell, where they have since resided. Seven children are left to mourn the loss of mother.
Her mother, Mrs. Amanda Maynard, of Denver, Colorado, five sisters, Mrs. T. Perry, of Webster City, Mrs. T. P. Thomas, of Beatrice. Nebraska, Mrs. Mattie Muer, of Denver, Mrs. Henry Carlow, of Denver, Mrs. Robert Woods, of Denver, and four brothers, Geo. W., of Minneapolis, Charles, Will, and Jay Maynard, of Denver, survive her. One sister is dead,
Her father, J. W. Maynard, was an old pioneer of Iowa. He served through the entire war, and died of disease contracted on the battlefield.
Mrs. Billings was converted at an early age and united with the Methodist church, of which body she was an active and untiring worker.
For the past two years Mrs. Billings has been an invalid. Her remains were laid at rest in the beautiful little cemetery at Jewell, on Friday, March 26th., followed by a sorrowing multitude of relatives and friends.
The bereaved family and relatives are most grateful to the many friends in Webster City and Jewell who, by their kind offices, lightened the burden of sorrow to a great extent.— Graphic-Herald, Webster City, Iowa.
