Mrs. Walter Good Buried Tuesday.

Funeral services were held Tuesday afternoon in Barnes City for Mrs. Walter Good, 57, who died Saturday afternoon, following a year's illness. Services were held at 2 o'clock in the Christian Church. Burial was at Union Mills, February 2, 1937.

Pallbearers were Roscoe Hutton, Jeff Lair, Cliff Steele, Harry Hilderbrand, Wm. Mouchka and Albert Landers. Bess Graham and Opal Beach sang "Face to Face" and "It is Well With My Soul."

The obituary follows:

Hattie Harriet Good, daughter of Macon and Matilda Kirby, was born in Roseville, Ill., November 4, 1879, and died after a year's illness at her home at 4:40 o'clock, Saturday afternoon, January 30, 1937, at the age of 57 years, two months and 26 days.

She was married March 8, 1902, to Walter Good. To this union two children were born: Velma Sanford of Columbiaville, Michigan, and Howard, at home. Besides the husband and children, she is survived by four sisters: Lilly Cameron of Illinois, Florence Dilly and Flora Stewart of Oskaloosa, Jennie Kirby of Lacey and Bertha Atroshenks of Minneapolis, Minn.; four brothers: Acllaska Kirby of Illinois, Theodore of Barnes City and George of Rose Hill, and a host of other relatives and friends.

She was uncomplaining about her own troubles but solicitious about the welfare of her loved ones, giving herself unstintingly to make things easier and better for them, as mothers have a way of doing.

She was a faithful wife and a kind mother, and one of her happy moments was when the children came home, and always an appreciative friend to all who knew her.
