Emma Jane Goldsberry, daughter of George W. and Mary Matilda Goldsberry, was born December 12, 1874, at Tippecanoe county, Indiana, and passed away February 1, 1957 at Seaside hospital, Long Beach, California.

The family moved to Columbus, Kansas in 1877, where she grew to womanhood. She came to Earlham, and made her home with her sister, Mrs. W. A. Bickford, where she worked in a store. She became a Christian and united with the Methodist church at Earlham and lived a faithful Christian life. Although not able to attend services regularly, she kept her interest in the kingdom through the years.

On March 26, 1910, at Columbus, Kansas, she was united in marriage to Floyd McKibben of Earlham, and to this union two children were born, Mary Marguerite Irvin of Long Beach and Norman Calvin McKibben of Monterey Park. Also seven grandchildren survive.

They moved to California in June 1948, so as to be closer to their children. She also leaves two brothers and two sisters, H. B. Goldsberry of Perry, Iowa; Mrs. Olive Bowers of Charles Town, West Virginia; M. L. Goldsberry of Columbus, Kansas, and Mrs. Lola Cushman of Martinsburg, West Virginia, also many nieces and nephews and many friends.
