Lizzie S. Anderson was born in Guernsey County, Ohio on October 26, 1850. From there she moved to Illinois where they resided till after her fatherís death. Then they moved to Madison county, Iowa where she spent the remainder of her life. She united with the U. P. church in the days of our youth and remained a faithful member until her death.

She leaves to mourn her loss her husband, three children, two daughters-in-law and eight grandchildren and a host of friends.

She was a kind wife and a loving mother and leaves a vacant place that never can be filled. On December 21 she was taken seriously ill and departed this life on December 24, 1916 at the age of 66 years, 1 month and 23 days.

Funeral services were held at the North Branch U. B. church Tuesday morning at 11 a. m., conducted by Rev. W. J. Stuart, of the United Presbyterian church of Winterset.

Transcriber's note: Although her gravestone and this obituary list her year of birth as 1850, she appears in the 1850 census as 2 years old and has a younger sibling so her birth year is likely to be 1848.
