OBITUARY ~ ELLA (SACKETT) KINDBLADE
February 15, 1875 ~ December 16, 1951

Ella Sackett Kindblade, the daughter of Alfred M. and Louisa Sackett was born near Mt. Pleasant IA February 15, 1875 and passed away December 16, 1951, at the Omaha hospital at the age of 75 years. At the age of eleven she moved with her parents from Henry County to a farm near Mt. Ayr.

At the age of 13 she confessed her faith in Christ and joined the Fry Chapel Methodist Church, later transferring her membership to Leon, IA, and then to the Methodist Church at Mt. Ayr where she was a member at the time of her death. She attended and worked for the church as long as her health permitted.

ON Nov. 28, 1894 she was united in marriage to George B. Kindblade and to this union was born one daughter, Alma. With her husband she moved to Leon in 1922. Her husband passed away in 1934 and she returned to Mt. Ayr in 1944. She had spent the last two years with her daughter in Omaha.

She was a charter member of the Royal Neighbors, having received her 50-year pin. She was a member of the Rebekah Lodge and the Past Noble Grand Association.

She leaves a daughter, Alma Hunt, of Omaha, a sister, Mae Guthrie of Des Moines, two brothers, Lester W Sackett of Des Moines, and Alfred E Sackett of Mt. Ayr. She was very fond of her nieces and nephews. She lived for others and their well being was her first concern. Her constant ability to smile, even in the face of hardship and intense suffering was a source of inspiration for all who knew her.

She possessed a faith, with which she faced life and death, unafraid and with great hopes. She will be missed by her loved ones, friends and all who knew her.

Burial was in Rose Hill cemetery at Mt. Ayr.
