Mrs. Mary C. Squire, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William Spaw, was born in Fayette County, Pennsylvania, Feb 22, 1849. She departed this life at the home of her daughter, Mrs. W. B. Perkins, Nov. 2, 1932, at the age of 83 years, 9 months and 11 days. She moved with her parents to VanBuren County, Iowa, when a child. She was united in marriage to John Squire July 25, 1867 in VanBuren County, Ia. To this union were born five children. She, with her husband, moved to the community of Seymour in the year of 1873 where she resided until the heavenly Father called her home. In early life she accepted Jesus Christ as her personal Saviour, and became a member of the First Baptist church in Seymour, where she remained a member until the time of her death. She was a faithful companion, loving mother, a kind neighbor and was faithful to the service of the church as long as her health would permit. She attended her last religious service Sunday evening. She spoke of the good meeting just a few hours before her death. Her husband preceded her in death March 3, 1924, and one infant daughter, Eva M. She leaves to mourn her departure four children, Wallace E. Squire, of Seymour, Mrs. T. W. Johnston, of Cypress, Cal; Mrs. W. B. Perkins and Mrs. H. E. Morrison, of Seymour; one sister, Mrs. Alice Hanna of Corydon; a brother, Benton Spaw, of Unionville, Mo.; six grandchildren and five great grandchildren. Besides other relatives she leaves a host of friends.
Fold her, O Father; in Thine arms, and let her henceforth be a messenger of love between our human hearts and Thee.
