December 5, 1918
It has pleased the Almighty God to call from life into eternity Eva
Katharine, wife of Mr. Mark Coleman and daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George
Trometer. She was born February 2, 1892, in Plymouth County, Iowa, near
Merrill, where she was also baptized. In 1906 she was confirmed, whereby
she became a communicant member of the Lutheran Church. October 20, 1915,
she was united in marriage with Mr. Mark Coleman. This union was blessed
with one child, a daughter. They made their home on her husbandís farm,
five miles south of Westfield, Iowa, which remained her home up to her
death. On November 18 she took sick, not in the least realizing that her
end was so near. On November 23, 1918, at 6:40 a.m. she passed away, at the
age of 26 years, 9 months, and 21 days, the cause being blood poisoning.
Her bereaved husband, one daughter, father and mother, three brothers and
grandfather are left to mourn her untimely demise, and all have the sympathy
of many friends.
Transcriber Note: The WPA records indicate that Eva K. Coleman, died age 26, is buried in St. Paul Lutheran cemetery, Johnson Twp, Plymouth County, IA.
