OBITUARY OF MRS. JOHN GREBNER
Laura Ethel Waddle was born in Liberty township, Plymouth county, Iowa, June 7, 1885, and died in Webster, South Dakota, March 3, 1914, at the age of 28 years, 8 months and 26 days. She received her education in the country schools of Plymouth county, and at the University of South Dakota. With her people, she lived in Merrill, Iowa, for about a year but had returned to the old homestead some time before she was united in marriage to Mr. John Grebner, July 15, 1908. Immediately after their wedding the couple went to their new home on a farm near Lisbon, N.D., where they resided for about eighteen months and where their home was gladdened by arrival of a daughter, Una Rose. They next settle upon their claim near Lemmon, S.D., and after proving up, they moved to a farm northeast of Webster, S.D., where they have since resided. On account of illness, Mrs. Grebner had been staying with her mother in Webster for a few weeks, but her condition was not at any time considered dangerous and the end was entirely unexpected. She leaves a grief-stricken husband, a 4-year-old daughter, a sorrowing mother Mrs. W. W. Waddle, of Webster, S.D., six brothers, William, Thomas, Arthur, Reuben, Frederick and Edward Waddle all of whom with the exception of Thomas on the old home farm, reside in or near Webster, S.D., also a sister, Mrs. Myron Kanago of Webster. Mrs. Grebner was a consistent Christian, a member of the U. B. church at Adaville, Ia., and also a member of the Yeoman lodge.
Funeral services were conducted in the M. E. church at Webster last Thursday by Rev. M. R. Crisp and Rev. J. M. Hunter; in the J. G. Grebner home at Merrill Saturday morning by Rev. A. J. Barkley, pastor of the M. E. church of that place, and Saturday afternoon at the Adaville church by Rev. G. H. Varce and Rev. A. J. Barkley. The remains were interred in the Adaville cemetery where her father was laid to rest but a little over a year ago. The pallbearers were Messrs. Geo. Beaulieu, Waldon Fry, Herbert Johnson, Warren King, Jack Tindall and Bert Trometer, all old neighbors and friends of the deceased. Mrs. Grebner was a lovable girl and woman and leaves many friends who sorrow with the bereaved family.
