The peaceful parting from scenes earthly of this venerable, good woman came after eleven months of suffering, born with marked patience and fortitude.
Mrs. Hine was a native of Geistmar, near Hesse Cassel, Germany. She emigrated to America in 1854, coming direct to Muscatine and had resided here ever since, where she has had the respect and esteem of all who knew her. She was a faithful and loving wife and mother, a kind neighbor and friend, always ready to aid in comforting the sick and sorrowing, and do Christian acts. In 1856 she united with the German Congregational church and has been a faithful and consistent member ever since. Her husband, who was favorably known, preceded her in death some ten years ago.
She leaves to mourn seven children, and many warm friends, her children being Andrew W., Mrs. Henry Nolte, William D., Mrs. John Leibrand and Anthony J., of this city, John B., of Hampton, Iowa, and Edward W., of Clinton, Iowa, all of whom are now at home except John B., who will arrive to-day from Hampton, Edward W. and wife having arrived from Clinton Wednesday evening.
The funeral is appointed for next Sunday at 2 p. m. from the German Congregational church, conducted by Rev. J. Fath, assisted by Rev. Judisch, of Davenport. Short services will be held at the house at 1:30 p. m.
