Rebecca Ann STULL was born at Bentonsport, Iowa, November 3, 1858, and died February 15, 1947, at the home of her daughter in Tingley, at the age of 88 years, 3 months and 12 days.

When a small child she moved with her parents to a farm near Pella, Iowa. She was united in marriage August 10, 1875, to Henry J. STEINKAMP, and to this union were born four children, two of whom preceded their mother in death - John in 1945, and Mrs. Cora BRECKENRIDGE in 1911.

Mr. and Mrs. STEINKAMP made their home on a farm near Knoxville until 1882, when they moved to Maryville, Mo., where they resided for 20 years. They moved to Tingley and resided there a number of years before going to Harrisonville, Mo. They returned in 1927 to Tingley to spend the remaining years of their lives near their daughters. Mr. STEINKAMP preceded her in death on April 2, 1929.

At the age of 33 years Mrs. STEINKAMP was converted and became a member of the Christain chruch, in which faith she remained faithful until her death. She was a devoted wife, a loving mother and a cherished friend to all who knew her.

Those left to mourn her passing are two daughters, Mrs. E.M. BRECKENRIDGE and Mrs. H.J. MORRISON, of Tingley, nine grandchildren, thirteen great-grandchildren, and four great-great-grandchildren, besides a host of friends.

Funeral services were held Tuesday afternoon from the Christian church in Tingley and burial was made in the Tingley cemetery.
