Mrs. Hobson was a charter member of the Woman’s Relief Corps of Winterset, in whose work she took a great interest, and for whose success she labored faithfully. She was a true Christian woman, having united with the M. E. church soon after her marriage, and of which communion she remained a devoted member until her death.
