Anna Zahren, nee Weber, was born March 12, 1862, at Main, Schleswig, and departed this life near Hartley, May 7th, at the age of sixty-one years, one month and twenty-five days. She was baptized in her childhood and after a course of catechetical instruction was confirmed in the Lutheran church.

March 7, 1883, she was married to Peter Zahren. in 1884 they emigrated to this country and first located in New Jersey where they lived three years’. Then they moved to Lost Nation, Iowa where they made their home for 16 years, and 10 years they lived in Linn County and the balance of her earthly pilgrimage was spent in the neighborhood of Hartley.

The family is unanimous in declaring Mrs. Zahren was a noble wife a true and sacrificing mother, friendly and kind to her neighbors, and because of her devotion to home and Bible, her place cannot be filled. She leaves to mourn her departure her deeply sorrowing husband; six sons, William and Amel of Early, Julius of Manchester, Iowa, Edward at home, and Gilbert and Harry of Lake Park; two daughters, Mrs. Clifford Garlick of Manchester, Iowa, and Mrs. Floyd Hakeman of White, S. D.; eight grandchildren, besides other relatives and friends.

Funeral services were held on Wednesday at the home at one o'clock and at the Lutheran church at Everly, conducted by the Rev. J. J. Braun of the Evangelical churchy of Hartley. Interment took place in the Everly cemetery.
"Let us be patient! These severe afflictions Not from the ground arise, But oftentimes celestial benedictions Assume a dark disguise. We see but dimly thru the mists and vapors. Amid these earthly damps •What seems to us but sad, funeral tapers. May be heaven's distant lamps."
