Died at her home near Truro, Ia., January 30, 1901, Mrs. John Ergenbright, aged 45 years 1 month and 4 days.

Mary Rose Dudney was born in Madison Co., Iowa, December 26, 1856. She was married to J. T. Ergenbright February 2, 1882. Two children were born to them, Earnest, aged 18 and Edna, age 9. She was taken quite sick with pneumonia on Saturday and died the Wednesday following, being sick only about five days. Her father, five brothers and two sisters survive her besides her husband and two children who deeply mourn the loss of a wife and mother. She was an earnest endeavourer in the cause of Christ and had many years ago learned to believe in Him. The funeral occurred February 2 and the remains were laid to rest in the Union cemetery in Clark county. The family and relatives have the deepest sympathy of all in this their hour of sadness.

Mrs. Roocho Ergenbright was born in Madison county, Iowa, December 26, 1856, and died at her home near Truro, January 30, 1901, after a few days of sickness and suffering which she bore patiently and submissively.

In the year 1875 she gave her heart and life to the Lord and joined the M. E. church. She has lived a devoted and exemplary life ever since - bringing sunshine into the lives of all that mingled in her social and Christian life - being loved by all who knew her.

She leaves a kind and devoted husband and two loving children, one son of eighteen years and a daughter of nine years, and aged father, sisters, brothers and a host of sympathizing friends to mourn her loss.

One of her greatest desires of life was that she might so live that her dear children might be raised up to become useful. The husband told the writer that he had left the training of the children’s lives in the hands of their mother and she had done her part nobly.

The funeral was held at the Oak Run church, conducted by Rev. S. C. Howe, of the Friends church. Our prayer to God is that He may comfort the bereaved husband and children in their great trial.

Coordinator's note: The deceased's middle name has appeared in several spellings including "Rose", "Roscoe", and "Roocho". "Rose" is probably not correct but the true version has not been determined.
